HI!  My name is Anita and I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada!  I am married to the love of my life Chad and together we are blessed with two wonderful children.  Ariel a sweet little girl who is 4 and a half and entering kindergarten in the fall (saddest thing ever!) and a never stop moving little boy Carter who will be 2 in August!  I love being a stay at home mommy to these two!  I started papercrafting 4 years ago when Ariel was a baby and with being at home I wanted something for me.  I had friends who would give me cards for my birthday and I thought to myself how much fun it would be and started!  It's the perfect hobby for how cold and long our winter's get over here!  I love stamping, there's just something so therapeutic to it!  I love this online world with papercrafting and all the friends I have made all over the world with it! 

I live in a town called Normal, where I’m a teacher, wife, mom to a furry baby, and lover of all things paper crafty. I’ve been a card maker for several years and have been incredibly fortunate…not only to have some of my work published but also to have been involved with some amazing design teams. I’m SO excited to be a member of the wee memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!

 I am married with 2 girls ages 15 and 12.  I teach grade 1 full time and my hobbies are paper crafting (especially card making and scrapping), photography, blogging and painting.  Although the job and family life keeps me busy I try to make time for myself daily by going for a run and of course playing in my craft room. I have recently been published in CARDS, Scrapbook Trends magazine, Scrapbook Trends Idea book, and in Paper Crafts magazine.  I am on a few Design Teams and am so happy to be a part of the Wee Memories DT.   My passion right now is anything using paper.  My girls are the inspiration for my scrapping and I am into card making as I love how quick, easy and satisfying they are... not to mention I am addicted to Challenges and participate in as many as I can.  I can't wait to see what the Wee Memories challenges are and what you will all create for us!

I’m happy, cheerful and a little bit zany at times!  I’m married to my best friend and lucky to be a stay at home mommy to our 2 little boys~ Zac 11 and Bryant 9 ~ and our very spoiled Boston Terrier- Ellie the Diva Dog.  I am a stamper who loves to create cards and gifty items.  When I’m not getting inky in my studio or spending endless hours at the skate park with my boys,  I love to cook, read and root for my Colorado Rockies!  I cannot start my day without coffee, I believe dessert is good for you, I love bad television like reality shows and good television like True Blood!  I think you have to be a good friend in order to have a good friend, I love to laugh, I yell at the t.v. when I watch baseball, and I love exclamation points and smiley faces! 

Hi, everyone!  My name is Sherri Thompson, and I am so excited to be part of the Wee Memories Design Team!  I live in rural Maine with my husband and our two children.  I am currently a full-time college student studying Elementary Education.  Papercrafting is my creative outlet and I try to fit in a little crafty time each day.
I began papercrafting in 1997, after my son was born.  At first, I was solely a scrapbooker, but then my sister-in-law introduced me to stamping and cardmaking and I was instantly hooked.  Now I have the privilege of designing for several manufacturers and challenge blogs.  I also write a monthly column for ScrapStreet magazine.
Thanks so much for taking the time to learn a little bit about me.  I hope you can join our weekly challenges-I can't wait to see what you create!

I live in the sunny city of Perth, Western Australia with my wonderfully supportive husband and our precious little kitty cat.  Although I currently live in the city, I originally grew up in a small country town surrounded by towering forests and thriving vineyards, and will always consider myself a country girl at heart.  I started crafting about 5 years ago (mainly with mosaics and home decorating), before I got into paper crafting by making my own birthday and engagement party invitations, as well as other invitations for both friends and family.  It was from this that I fell in love with all things paper, which then lead me to the wonderful world of stamping and card making about 2 years ago, and I have been addicted ever since!

Hi, I am Vera Wirianta Yates. I love pretty papers and cute stamps. I started as scrapbooker and branched out to card making shortly after. I was part of the original DT for Simply Sentiments magazine back in 2004, then life take certain turns and I didn't get to do much scrapbook or card making for a few years. Couple of years ago I got back on the swing of things and started my blog last year. This year, I am proud to have made it to Paper Craft Gallery Idol Top 5. My card making style is definitely cute and clean. I am so excited to be part of Wee Memories Challenge DT. You can check out my works on my blog: or on my flickr gallery here:
