Hello, my name is Mervi and I'm from Southern Finland. I've tried all kinds of arts and crafts think all my life, but card making just took my heart and time few years ago. I do everything from cute to shabby vintage and I want to try everything new! I look forward for visiting your blogs and see your works on the challenge themes, hope we have fun and great time together;-))m
I've been crafting for as long as I can remember, junk modelling as a child - my mum still has some toilet roll snowmen !! I started card making about 20 years ago though I can't remember how, I think I saw a stall at a craft fair and though 'I can do that!' - I still have the first rubber stamps I bought to make christmas cards with. I then found scrapbooking too, although I do this less now. Rubber stamping is definitely my biggest passion and I love getting inky and creating my own backgrounds and embellishments. I started my blog almost a year ago and as my confidence has grown I decided it was time to get stuck in a bit more and I thought what a lovely opportunity the Craft Room DT call was to join a team from the beginning. I'm really looking forward to having lots of fun and sharing our creativity !
I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, but only started crafting about 10 years ago with scrapbooking the kids early childhood. One year ago I made friends with a card maker and have been making cards since then. I'm also making tentative forays into Mixed Media Art and enjoy sharing my art. I love blogging and challenges, so I'm thrilled to be part of this new Design Team.
Completing the team are Julia and Zoe, the challenge founders.
Its great to be putting this new challenge together and getting to work with this fabulous team. Crafting in one form or another has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. Papercrafting and Rubber Stamping for 15/16 years now. During that time many styles have come and gone most of which I've tried, it is rubber stamping that has endured for me and getting my fingers inky!
