Iris Babao Uy. . . .

Song Li. . . . . .                                              
My name is Conghui Li, however people call me Song since my name is a little awkward to pronounce. I became a huge craft enthusiast about one and a half years ago.  How did I become a craft enthusiast?  My boyfriend, one day, decided to show me the crafty side of this country and took me to Michael's.  I brought something home just to play around and to try them out.  Next thing I know, I am addicted to crafting.  This crafting community is so fun, loving and encouraging.  It really keeps me crafting.  I love playing with colors in my projects and trying out different awesome techniques.  My style is mostly mixed media, but I also try to do different styles as well. I love sharing what I do and I really hope you will like what I create.

Ingrid Gooyer. . . . 

My name is Ingrid Gooyer and I live in the Netherlands.
I'm married to the best hubby, Rob and together we have two beautiful girls, Tessa and Yiscka.

At a very young age I started my creative journey by making dresses for my dolls.
Having a mom and dad who were both very creative as well sure helped! 
My mom did wonders with the sewing machine but she also knitted, crocheted and needlepointed as well.
My father was great with paints and could also calligraph the most beautiful pieces.
From a young girl until now, I have always been busy creating too.

Started scrapbooking in 2006 and now I can't imagine my life without it!
I'm working in a lab for three days per week.
After a busy work day filled with analyses and numbers I find it so relaxing to clear my head and create!
I love to make layouts, canvases, cards  and altered projects.
Having two girls means a lot of girly projects filled with all kind of girly stuff.
I love to work with lace, pearls, flowers, chipboard, mists, paints, gesso, oh well....all the fun stuff!

I'm so excited to work with this talented team and I can't wait to share my projects with you!
