The "Sketchers"

Hi my name is Cathy and I am from a suburb 25 miles west of Chicago, IL.  I am married to a wonderful man who supports my paper hoarding ways and I am a mother to two adult children ages 26 and 24.  My daughter who is a Forensic Chemist was recently married, and just moved to PA where her husband is doing his residency at Hershey Penn State University Hospital, and my son lives in Chicago and gave me the most precious gift - a grandson....Trevor Patrick.  I started playing with paper about 8 years ago when I started making paperbag scrapbook albums, but found that cards are what I love doing the most! I am honored to be on the Seize the Sketch Design Team and to be creating along the side of so many talented girls!

Hi all!  I'm Jen and I am super excited to be joining all these talented ladies on the Seize the Sketch design team.  I live in Bridgewater, Massachusetts and have been making cards for many, many years!  By day I work in a bank so at night I love to unwind and let my creative side loose in my stamp room!  I'm so thankful for Lesley for giving me this opportunity and I can't wait to see where this new creative journey leads me!

Hi, I'm Jessi Fogan - I live in Nova Scotia, Canada in an itty-bitty house crammed full with my husband, teenage sons, three cats, and a dog. Both boys have autism, so although I'm a stay at home mom, I'm also a psychologist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, teacher, and raving lunatic. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderfully talented group of artists!

Hi everyone!  I'm Katie and I live in a small town in Eastern Washington with my amazing husband, my wonderful little girl who is three, and a very spoiled cat.  I'm a part-time Lab Nerd and a full time cardmaking and papercrafting addict!  I started making cards with some friends in 2008 and in 2012 I discovered the huge community of online inspiration, challenges and blogging.  I decided to try my hand at a blog and I've been hooked ever since.  I'm honored to be part of such a fun challenge and this talented group of crafty ladies!

Hi! my name is Lee Ann Barrett and I live in St Louis with my 22 y.o.son and a devoted Greyhound named Bella. I have been a crafter as long as I can remember, having done everything from cross stitch to quilting. Scrapbooking became my crafting addiction about 20 years ago. Then I was introduced to stamping a few years back, and card making slowly started taking over my life!
When I am not cutting paper or getting inky, I am a school nurse. I also enjoy traveling and photography. I am thrilled to be working with such a talented group of ladies!

Hello everyone! My name is Lori and I live in central Alberta, CANADA with my hubby and 2 teenage kiddos, Calvin and Kimberly. I started my paper crafting journey with SU! about 13 years ago and was a DEMO up until a couple years ago, when I decided I wanted to broaden my crafty-goodness horizons! I am also an avid crocheter and love to color! I'm so excited to be here at Seize the Sketch working with such amazingly talented ladies! 

Hi, I'm Lori Tecler. I live in the Washington, D.C. suburbs with my adorable goldendoodle, Chloe the cutie puppy. She keeps me on my toes with her non-stop antics! During the day, I work in the early childhood office of a large school system, but at night, you can usually find me crafting away with the TV on in the background. I'm thrilled to be joining the fabulous team at Seize the Sketch.

Rose Miller

Hi, my name is Sherry and I live in Minneapolis, MN with my husband Joe and our son Justin.

You can usually find me in my craftroom either making a card or working on some kind of scrapbook project. You can find me and my blog here.

Hi, I am Vicki.  I have been stamping for about 20 years and got started like a lot of other stampers; a SU party.  I kind of played around for a few years, but when I found SCS I really became addicted. Now, I stamp during most of my free time -- and I have even hired a housekeeper!  (Who has time to clean? Not me) I just adore this hobby!  I am looking forward to being on the Seize the Sketch Team and want to thank Lesley for the opportunity.

Hello everyone, I’m Colleen Dietrich!   I’ve always tended to have only one hobby at a time, and in the past, wreath-making, miniatures, gardening and quilting were interests of mine.  Do housecleaning and organizing count as hobbies?  ;-)  I enjoy those, too.   Card-making entered my life in 2007, via an SU demonstration, and blogging in 2010.  Card-making is my very favorite hobby.   It trumps everything else!  Thanks to Lesley for asking me aboard.  So happy to be here!

Hi there! My name is Mona Pendleton, I live with my sweet husband, Scott in Phoenix, AZ. We have a blended family consisting of two teenagers, two grown young adults and two 8 year old West Highland Terriers. I work as a Registered Nurse in the Operating Room of an Orthopedic Hospital. I enjoy creating whether is it with paper, fabric, stamps, dies, paint, ink, markers and anything else that allows me to be creative. I love lots of layers, colors, and find happiness in all the little details! Thanks Lesley for the opportunity to be designing with such a talented team of ladies!
