Time to Meet The Merry Maidens

Yesterday we introduced The Sleigh Belles (click HERE if you missed it) and now it is time to get to know the second half of our team.
I am Edwina Brown. I was born in Kentucky, moved to Georgia for 23 years on January 8, 1978 and then moved to New Jersey on February 21, 2001.

I learned about scrapbooking from a friend at church. It was the beginning. I made scrapbooks for different people when they moved away, including for the friend who taught me about scrapbooking.  I started making cards around 2006. Digis came into my life when I finally figured out how to set up a blog in 2011. I never knew that I would spend so much time with it and enjoy it so much. I started with the Robyn’s Fetish Design Team in January 2012. I have learned a lot while on this team and have enjoyed every creation I have had the honor to make. I started doing the RF tutorials in February 2013. It is a lot of work, but very interesting and inspiring.

I am 52 years old. I have 3 brothers, 3 nieces and 3 great nephews. I live with my parents and our cat, Goldie, who was a stray, hurt and cold when we brought her in and took good care of her. Cold, you ask? Yes! It was ZERO degrees outside! What a lucky cat she is now!
My name is Mari and I married to my best friend in the whole world. We have 5 wonderful kids and love spending time outdoors. We also homeschool our kids, so the family keeps me very busy. When I'm not doing the mom thing I like to sneak down to my craft room and have some quiet time. My favorite time to sneak in some crafting is early in the morning before anyone else is awake. I have been a crafter my whole life, I started scrapbooking when I was in High School and started making cards about 5 years ago. I also enjoy baking and photography.
When Lisa talked to me about being on the design team for The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up blog, I got very excited. Yeah! What a great way to have fun, be creative, AND get a jump start on my Christmas cards all at the same time! Sounds like a Win-win event to me!

My name is Julie Odil, and I am a paper addict. I love to collect all those pretty papers. Just recently, I have discovered the joy of digital papers. Imagine! Love a beautiful pattern? Just print more! I also have a bit of a collection of stamps (rubber, digital, clear), embellishments, ribbons, dies, markers, die cutting machines. Yeah, you get the idea. I love to create — cards, 3D projects, home decor, I never know what direction I am heading in next. Christmas cards, though? I always need those. So, I am very excited to be a part of this team. Maybe this year, I’ll be ready for Christmas? Nah!
I live with my partner (Edward), 2 indoor cats, 2 outdoor feral cats I am luring, and a dog in the far southwest corner of Georgia. I have been creating for my whole life, from quilts, to locker hooking, to interior decorating, to paper crafting! The list was just growing and growing. I decided that I need to focus on something and choose paper crafting...which has now grown into card making, quilling, mixed media, artist trading cards, and swapping! lol.

I try to make things that are different, have some unexpected aspect, and tend to lean toward strong women and strong colors. But not always! I may surprise everyone occasionally with random cuteness.

Let's inspire each other.
Hi everyone! I am Kemly Sc. I am from Heredia in Costa Rica. I have a daugther called Daniela. My other loves are my dogs and my little cat.  I love to make crafts handmade, make Quilting, make cards and other techniques. Since, I am a little child I make crafts. I am teacher of profession and artist by vocation.  I love life and their colours 100 %. I believe that everyday is an opportunity for growth, to create and I try to give of best of me.
Hello! My name is Suze and I live in New Zealand.

I have been card-making off and on for a number of years since a friend introduced me to rubber stamps although I now work mostly with digi stamps. My style is mainly CAS but I'm trying to learn new techniques. I first started blogging my cards in February 2012 so that I could enter some challenges. I initially started with mainly Christmas challenges to take the pressure off at the end of the year but have since found several others that have appealed to me. Since I live on the other side of the world, so many of the challenges are the opposite season to ours which certainly makes things interesting!

There you have it!  Please join us in welcoming this second group of very talented women.  Once again, Monica and I are extremely fortunate to have these ladies with us as well.  You will see projects from The Merry Maidens during the Challenge Midway each month so get forward to being super inspired by this group too.  Each of these lovely ladies would be glad to have you visit them.  Clicking on each of their pictures will take you directly to their individual blogs.

Well, you've officially met the entire design team.  Soon we'll be introducing all of our generous sponsors!  Don't forget that we have candy up for grabs until the end of the month.  You can find everything you need to know by clicking HERE and heading to that post.  We also have a couple other things planned for this month that we'll be letting you know of shortly.

Take care everyone.  We'll be seeing you again real soon!
