Welcoming Kellie to the DT!

Hello everyone,

Thank you so much for leaving me such kind comments on my last post. I'm so happy to hear your enthusiasm for Alie's art. I'm sure it made her smile too :)

New DT Member

Today I'm announcing one more addition to the DT. We're at 8 now so I'll have to slow down for a bit and focus on Guest Designers. A BIG warm welcome to Kellie Murton!!!

You might recognize Kellie from the awesome video tutorials I have been posting lately. She's refreshingly candid on film, down to earth and I love her art. Kellie will be the first DT member to be bringing you inspiration from the U.S. It's so exciting to be building a team of international artists. Thank you internet! We now have:

Canada (Shirley)

Germany (Anja)

Netherlands (Alie, Karin and Miranda)

UK (Eileen and Wendy)

... and now the US (Kellie)

To celebrate, here's Kellie's latest project!

Here's the link to her YouTube video! http://youtu.be/kXJtnVfiXDo

A little gallery of Kellie's projects so far...

All of her videos for these projects can be found on my Pinterest page. She also has TONS of other videos on her YouTube channel Kellie Murton

Meet Kellie

For those of you who haven't seen her Guest Spotlights, here is a bit about Kellie in her own words...

"When I am not working or spending quality time with my 3 boys, ages 23, 11 and 9, you will likely find me in my studio working on my next crafting project, jewelry design or mixed media art journal page. I am the owner of InsideOut Field Services, a professional lender services business. I have over 25 years in the lender services and collections business and starting my own successful servicing business over 9 years ago was a dream come true. It's not all rainbows and butterflies of course but that is where my artistic passion comes in to play to level things out. I also own a small online store called Intoxication by Kellie that I am excited about taking to the next level in the coming months. My amazing husband, who is my soul mate and best friend, keeps me grounded and after all these years of working together and raising our family together, we still LIKE each other. Loving someone is easy. LIKING someone is another story entirely. All my boys are champions and they make me whole.

I've been sharing tutorials and fun creations on YouTube for about 4 years now. I also organized a Google+ community called The ICWIC Crew where we share mixed media projects to inspire each other. The crafting community that I have been fortunate enough to be part of never ceases to amaze me with their kindness and support. I've made some amazing friendships on YouTube that I am very grateful for. I was absolutely honored to be invited to be a Design Team Member for Ryn Tanaka with Designs by Ryn.com. I have been admiring her stamps for quite some time and I'm proud to demonstrate how I use her high quality products for you."

Thanks for Stopping By

I really appreciate you visiting my blog and taking interest in what's new around here. If you have a moment to leave Kellie a welcome here or on her YouTube channel I'm sure it would make her day :) Thanks again. I'm wishing you lots of inky fun!

Until next time,
