Artbymiran turned one year this past July, and I can’t believe how far we have come in just 1 years’ time.

Sarah

I’m a happy wife of 31 years with one daughter who has blessed me with 2 wonderful teenage granddaughters and a fun little 4 year old grandson.  I’ve been doing different crafts most of my life and have been told “You are your mother’s daughter!”  which I take as a great compliment!  Mom was very creative and I’d love to be as good as she was.  When the scrapbooking craze first came out, I thought it was crazy to buy all that stuff I saw at Hobby Lobby just to make a scrapbook.  Then I was invited to a scrapbooking party at my friends house.......and that’s when I went crazy!  LOL!  I am now an avid scrapbooker, card maker, glass etcher, t-shirt designer (sort of), basically anything I can cut, glue, vinyl or tie ribbon on!   I’d love to have you come visit me on my blog and see what I’ve been up to!  Thank you to everyone at Love to Create for having me this week!

Ike
Hi there – I am Ike……a nickname that I got hooked with many years ago due to my surname, and in my profession at that time, …… they just loved  to give nicknames. J
OK – potted history ….. I was born in the UK, went to art college, worked as a Cop for 30 years, had me 1 fabulous daughter, lived on an island, retired and moved to another island, became a grandmother, do my own thing. J
I live in Greece now and have a passion for kitties. J I have 8 house cats and several interlopers that I feed at the windows. This number grows all the time as the kitty telegraph goes around!!  I also have 8 English Light Sussex chickens that I reared myself in an incubator. J
I am a complete nutter or should I say I’m ‘zany’ hahaha.  I have a very strange/sick sense of humour and I must admit I spend a lot of time talking to myself. !!  Well, I get more sense out of me!  I reckon in a few years I shall be known as the “crazy cat lady”.  J
I am an artist and have a strange mind when it comes to creating my art. I either go completely true to life… right down to the last hair… or I go totally surreal. I have a passion for all things horror/Gothic etc. I’ve always loved horror films and books and I guess that’s why it creeps into my stuff! 
Had I been a bit younger I swear I would have been a Goth……luuuuuv it.
Next time around I am gonna be a witch or a cat J

My name is Lee Holland and I am a freelance illustrator who loves to design and draw cute characters. I've worked in many industries over the years including greeting cards, card making, cross stitch and books to name a few. I love nature and going for walks with my family which provides a lot of inspiration for my work. I decided to open an etsy shop to sell my designs as Digi stamps for crafters to use in their crafting projects. I hope people enjoy using my images as much as I do drawing them :)

This week's PRIZE is Two (2) Digital Stamps
of WINNER's Choice!

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!

I am Margreet Burger. I live in the Netherlands with my husband Joop. I am a mother to Femke, who recently got married to Paul. I am working part-time as a secretary in the veterinary pharmaceutical industry.
I've been a crafter all my life, but card making and paper crafting is all the world to me. I love coloring with copics, distress (markers) and l'Aquarelle (Sennelier).
I am very excited to be Guest Designer for the Love to Create Challenge this week.
