The Team

Hello.  I'm NanaConnie.  You can find my creative endeavors on my blog, Grammy's Attic.   I am often called a "crazy cat lady" but the truth is that I'm really an animal lover, not exclusively a cat lover.  At the moment, I share my home with two feline fur babies, although it might be more proper to say they have agreed to share their home with me as long as I keep their food and water dishes full and the litter box clean.  In this group, that makes me feel like a piker but I can assure you that another animal will decide to "adopt" our home as their own and the family will increase once again.  

Dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds of all feathers, tropical fish, reptiles, hamsters, white rats, and even an ant farm, have all shared their love with me over the years and, although I do object to uninvited field mice scampering in unexpectedly, I simply can't imagine a home without several of God's loveable critters in it.

My crafting life currently seems to run mostly to card making, but I love painting, sewing, needlecrafts, quilting, scrapbooking, ceramics, altered art, quilling, and even writing poetry.

Hi! I'm Donna Ellis. Many of you
know me as "de", a nickname quickly given me during my pottery throwing days. My personal blog is Creative Smiles because I giggle a lot through the creative process. Married to the love of my life, we share an enjoyable lifestyle with our fur children and lots of wildlife in "rural" Central FloridaLife - such a precious gift! In my home, we awaken each day to new adventures with critters of some sort all around us! Our German Shepherd and Kitty find themselves frequently coated with glitter, and are interested in the goings-on of my craft room. Wildlife in our area includes foxes, bobcats, deer, raccoons, armadillos, coyotes, squirrels, opossums, and a variety of birds. Looking forward to seeing your creations in the monthly challenges!

Lisa Furbush:  I am so excited to be working with the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Design Team!  This is a wonderful group of designers with a passion for critters!  My blog is Don't Run With Scissors.  In November 2015 I was offered a dream job which relocated my fiancé and our three cats (Luna, MJ, and Stella) to Georgia from Connecticut.  I have been a paper crafter for over 20 years and love working with new techniques and mediums.    I have done many youtube videos on the techniques I have learned and look forward to starting my 'Technique Tuesdays' back up!  Thank you for joining us at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  I look forward to seeing your creations!

  Hello, I am Lori and I LOVE all of God's Critters!!  I have always had dogs, and along the years I have also had a bunny, parakeets, Lorikeet, 2 horses and a cat.  I have a long list of pets that I want to have so I thing the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies is a perfect match for me!!  At the present time we have two rescued Huskies that make me laugh everyday!  I grew up in Brick, NJ in the USA and I have lived  in Toms River, NJ with my wonderful and supportive husband, Wayne, since 2000.  We have two grown daughters, Julie and Jenna and two crazy rescued huskies.  I was introduced to Scrapbooking at a Creative Memories Home Class in 1988 where I fell in love with scrapping!  I was a Creative Memories Consultant for 11 years, and have enjoyed designing for many companies over the years.  I love scrapbooking and making cards. My blog is here:Lori's Kreations.

Hello, I’m Ine (creaine). I’m a married mum, have one daughter, and work 3 days a week at a Bank. I live in a small town in the South of the Netherlands.

I think card making is a great hobby. I  have my own blog, a Facebook Page, and a Dutch card group on Facebook, so come and have a look.

I’m working on a few other Design teams… a great job to do! I love to work with digi’s, sketches and embroider on cards as well. Love to work with die-cuts. Further I enjoy swimming and reading and surfing on my computer. Looking forward to see all your creations!

Hello Everyone.  Cheryl here -  Mum of 2 very energetic kids, Wife of very patient Husband, and lover of all things cute and cuddly (that's why I'm really pleased to be on the team).

I started crafting when my Grandma taught me to knit. I was 14 at the time and I have had some sort of crafty project on the go ever since.  I love to make cards - not bought one from a shop for the last 11 years.  I am addicted to card making; it's my relaxation 'me' time.

I was a demo for Stampin Up! for over 2 years, and on the Design Team at For the Love of Stamps - Hunkydory recently for a 6 month term. Occasionally I appear in Making Cards magazine - you can't beat the feeling of being in print, and there are regular get-togethers at my house in North Lincolnshire (UK) with my crafty friends where we try new products, eat cake, and drink tea.  I just love exchanging ideas and trying out new products.

My phobia of technology had prevented me from having a blog for a long time, but now I've got one called MY CRAFT SHED!  I've joined Facebook, and even got an Instagram account - amazing!  Can't think why I hadn't done this all sooner. Really looking forward to getting crafty with the Critters.

Hello from Hamilton, New Zealand.  I am Carol Gunn, a lifelong crafter who has tried all sorts of crafts (especially those with fabric and paper) and am lucky enough to have a craft-tolerant husband. We have four children & eight grandchildren, all living in NZ.  I blog about my crafts, so check it out -   

I don’t think I have a particular card making style tending towards the unfussy, although I have been known to go WiLd from time to time and I do like to get inky.  I love challenges and trying new things,  so I’m looking forward to being part of such a creative team. Cheers, Carol.

Hi, I'm Lynn and so excited to be here as one of the designers for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  I'm a retired pre-trial probation officer and live in Texas (and no, I don't wear boots and a cowboy hat all the time).  I live with my two critters - Jim, the hubs critter and Rambo,  a four-legged, burst of energy, dachshund critter. 
If you look at my blog, you'll notice I do a LOT of critter cards!  I just can't think of anything cuter than animals and I love them all. I'm looking forward be being part of such a wonderful design team and challenge blog.

Hello friends!  My name is Vicki Parson and I'm so delighted to be a part of this special challenge team!  I have been a lover of critters ever since I can remember!  I've always been around animals since childhood and I truly believe that they can enrich your life for the better in so many different ways!  As a child growing up surrounded by many types of animals out in the country, I have so many fond memories!  What better way to honor all of those memories with my "animal pals" than to create and share my love of them each month!  

I really enjoy spreading smiles as far as I can and this is just another way for me to share that with you!  If you'd like to see more smiles from me, please visit me on my blog - Stamped Smiles.  I look forward to sharing my critter creations with you and I can't wait to see your creations in the gallery!

Hello!  I’m Patti, and I’m so happy to be here!  
I’m known in the creative circles as Patti J., and my blog is Cherish Each Precious DayI was introduced to paper crafts 18 years ago. My first teacher is now my best friend! I dabbled for a while, then became hopelessly addicted after retirement.  I enjoy submitting items for publication, and have been lucky to have many of my creations published. 

My husband is an amazing guy, who indulges my creative time, and just spoils me rotten!  We live in rural Missouri and have been married for 46 years. When we travel, he always makes time for me to meet my paper crafting friends in other cities – he’s a keeper!  The ‘boss’ of our home is a little (okay, a little chubby) pound puppy named Sophie. Our two grown children live with their families on the east coast and west coasts. We are blessed with 4 grandchildren ranging in age from 1-5. It’s SO much fun being grandparents! We also have 4 beautiful grand-doggies that can’t wait to see grandma and pawpaw.

At my age, every day is a gift, and I try to “Cherish Each Precious Day”.  My creative style changes daily, so be prepared for whatever comes along! I’m excited to be designing for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies, and look forward to making some new crafty friends!

Greetings! I am Geesje, in Blogland also known as Engelchen. I live in the Netherlands. 

My greatest hobby is making cards. I began making 3D cards and later found that I enjoy stitching my cards. I also love to colour the digi's. 

Now I like to make cards with digi's, scrap and use die cuts. I also like to incorporate digi's with stitching.

My other hobbies are walking, taking nature photos, and reading a good book. I have my own challenge blog and love hosting it. I am DT in other challenge blogs as well. You can find my blog here:

 Featuring Guest Designer Anne Buckingham beginning August 1, 2019. 

We invite you to visit her blog and encourage her in her new blog journey.
