Welcome Lollipop Girls!!!

Hello! Happy Sunday!
THANK YOU all for applying for our first ever DT call!! We enjoyed looking through all your wonderful creations! We would love for everyone to join our team but realistically, it is not possible. Making a final decision was very difficult for us but it had to be done. So without further ado, I give you our first ever Lollipop Crafts Design Team, THE LOLLIPOP GIRLS!

Hello. My name is Alanna and I have a wonderful husband, Devin, and two school aged children, Reynna and Christopher. My day job is an auditor/CPA so my crafty time is when I get to let loose and have some fun. I've been scrapbooking for just about 10 years now, card making for nearly that long, and blogging for 2 years. I love to share my passion of papercrafting with all those around me and have thoroughly enjoyed "meeting" so many wonderful people who share my passion.

This is Barbara with a big “Howdy” from Texas! I’m thrilled to be here and to share my creations and ideas with everyone! I've been into arts and crafts sense I could run with scissors and my main hobby is scrapbooking. However, I've been making cards for over eight years and my hobby room is overflowing. (Don’t worry, I’m sure I can fit more!) I recently discovered Copic markers and was thrilled at being able to combine two more enjoyable interests of mine - coloring and stamping. Random facts about me: I also love to draw, read, take naps and play with toys – I’m just a kid at heart. :-D I'm a night owl and make most of my cards after everyone goes to bed. As for the rest of the day, like most of us, I'm a headless chicken. Owls and chickens – ‘who’ knew they’d go so well together! I live by the motto “A stamp a day keeps the stress away” and I look forward to creating along side this amazing team! Visit my personal blog too at http://forgottenscraps.blogspot.com/. Ya’ll come back now!

Hi, I'm Diane and I live in Broken Arrow, OK which is basically Tulsa. I am SAHM married to Eric for 12 years and have 2 children. My daughter Kaitlyn is 10 years old and has Down syndrome and a son Austin who is 7. I love to shop - especially bargain shopping, travel and organizing just about anything. Over the past 20 years I have taken classes and enjoyed doing cake decorating, flower arranging, interior design and scrapbooking. I’ve taught classes at a local scrapbook store in the area, I really enjoy teaching. I like doing all kinds of scrapbooking including cards and altered art. I have a blog called Princess Scrap Girl that I use to share my art with those who appreciate the process and also to connect with others who love it as much as I do.

Hello! My name is Kim. I am happily married to a wonderful, caring husband and I am very blessed to have two very adorable little ones. I love all things crafty: scrapbooking, card making, stamping, crocheting, jewelry making, etc. I have been blogging and stamping/card making since early last year and I am loving it! I have come across lots and lots of talented crafters out there and I am learning something new everyday! Everyone’s amazing creations inspire me to create more and more each day! I hope I inspire everyone as well!

Hiya!!! The name is Krista but everyone calls me Kris (i prefer it too)... I'm currently a SAHM with 2 little girls and a little boy on the way... Born and raised on the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii =D... Because of the Aloha spirit here and the sun and beaches, I really don't see myself moving off this rock, LOL... I enjoy crafting, reading a good book, traveling and MOST of all, spending time with family... Family is a big part of who I am and it is the foundation of my existence... I've been crafting for 10+ years doing all sorts of craft things, from scrapbooking, party favors, lei making to my current obsession ~ card making... I started my blog, http://klusivekreations.blogspot.com/ a year ago and I've been enjoying meeting new people and developing many friendships... I'm a past designer for Flutter by Wednesdays and Whimsical Wednesdays - The Diedrich Dare and very thankful to have experienced and serve on those teams... My life does get a little crazy at times, but i do LOVE every moment of it!! My goal is to share my creativity with you and be inspired by your creations as well... So come along and take a spin with me!!!

Hi guys, I am Lisa G and I have had a blog called http://gobeagirl.blogspot.com/ since last August. We live in the middle of Washington State in a great town called Moses Lake. It is considered the desert part of this wonderful state and it's not wrong. I am a full time Pharmacy Tech, a Wife and a Mother to two wonderful children. We have a 13 year old Son and a 12 year old Daughter. They are a year and one day apart...lol... I have always loved crafting but I got into scrapbooking in 1998 when I needed a present for my Grandmother. My husband, Jerry suggested I make her a scrapbook as I have always been into taking pictures. What can I say I was hooked! I taught Cricut classes for the local scrapbook store until she had to close last April. That was when I discovered Copic Markers! I have been addicted ever since... I go into stamps because I ran out of things to color. lol...I enjoyed it so much that I decided to start my blog. What can I say I have met so many wonderful people since I started stamping and blogging. I can not wait to see where this adventure takes me. When I am not working you can find me in our pool with the kids and Jerry or sitting at my desk making a card with my Copics.

We will announce our August Designer on Thursday, so please stay tuned! Our Guest Designers are very special to us so we want her/him/them to be spotlighted for a day!

Also, our first challenge is tomorrow! We hope you can all play along with us! Thank you all for your support!
