Guest Designer this week

Trudy Harris-Thomas

Hey ya'll - I'm Trudy.  I'm somewhat of a newbie at cardmaking and blogging; posting my first creation and blog post just 6 months ago.  Prior to that I  actually owned a couple of little flower shops.  I live in a small agricultural community in South Central Florida with my husband, 2 rescued dogs and one very mean Amazon Parrot   I live approximately 125 miles (round trip) to the closest crafts store.  I can no longer drive due to a medical condition so,  needless to say, I have to improvise often while working on my cards.  You know what they say - necessity is the mother of invention.  I make and/or create many of my own embellishments and rely on the internet heavily for exceptional companies to get me product quickly and at a good price.

I am primarily a card maker, however I do quite a bit of altered art and some scrapbooking; I am BIG on recycling and natural items in my projects.  I don't really have a set "style", although I lean toward Vintage and shabby chic in many of my personal creations where I have "free will".

I have been a GDT on a few sites and I am currently on 2 Design Teams (Tammy's Scrappin Corner and Tsunami Rose Designs) and love the experience I am gaining by teaming with such creative minds.  It makes me create projects that I would probably never try, and I just love how it makes me think "outside of the box and gets me out of my comfort zone".
