Welcome new Design Team Member: Heidi Kelley!
Here is more about Heidi in her own words:
My name is Heidi Kelley and I currently live in Alabama with my husband of 10 years, Patrick. I am a SAHM who is in love with our three children Ahna (9), Sarenna (7), and Jax (10 months). We move quite a bit for my husbands job, and in the past 7 years we have lived in North Carolina, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and we moved to Alabama just about a year ago.
Creativity strikes me at all different times. I find myself inspired by words that my children speak, sunsets, music playing, even seeing fruit in a market stand. Sometimes the moment even hits me while I am in the car... (and then I must quickly finish running errands, lol, so that I can get it all down on paper.) My children are often with me during these moments, and they join me by sitting under my table, crafting themselves. I LOVE that.
I have been "Scrapping" my whole life it seems, before I even knew there was all these amazing products out there. The past 5 years, however, my creativity has really been let loose and I have had an incredible time working with and for several companies! I tend to be somewhat of an eclectic artist, and don't always use scrapbook supplies in the most traditional of ways. I also have a love for mixed media and unique products that allow me to customize and create one of kind projects, and my fingers/clothes/ and scrap table are all "embellished" with unusual colors because of my passion for altering and/or making each product my own with paints, pastes, mists, etc!
I am so ecstatic to be a part of this amazing Shimmerz team!
Be on the lookout for some awesome projects from Heidi coming soon.
Welcome to the team :)
