Hi!  My name is Maggie.  I am a transplanted Yankee living Houston, Texas for over 40 years.  I’m a single mom with 2 grown daughters and 4 awesome grandchildren, the youngest who will be a Senior in High School next year. I’m also “mom” to 4 furbabies who rule the roost -Paisley, Maggie Mae, Corey, and Casper who are the inspiration for my Stamp Haven and blog - Maggie’s Cat House.  I also have a few outside kitties that I love and take care of.  
My mom taught me the love of crafting with thread and needles as I was growing up, but then I started paper crafting about 1999 with scrapbooking but then one of my daughters introduced me to rubber stamping.  I love all things creative, but there’s only time for so much especially with a full time job and making cards took over my life. I love a challenge and have seen my style evolve over the years and have enjoyed learning so many different techniques.  My passion right now is Copic markers and coloring with pencils.
I started my blog in 2011to showcase my cards. I’ve been on a few Design Teams since then and now I’m so excited to be a part of the Creatalious Design Team.



And here are the inspiration projects of the team for you...

I mean, it is quite a bit of work to organize sponsors and prices for all the challenges in a year and then people don't collect their prices... I even check my spam folder at least once a week, so that I don't miss any of your emails...

Please welcome our new DT members, who're joining Team A



I have been making cards and working with paper crafts for over 15 years. I like a variety of styles and to try new things whenever possible. I especially love paper and ribbons and cannot resist anything new in the stores. I live in South Carolina and recently retired so I have plenty of time to create whenever I wish.

&
I am mother of two adult children, married to a wonderful man, Theo our cat. We live in the country. I work as a language teacher at the high school. I share my spare time between family, the garden- my herbs and scrapbooking. I started scrapping and DT 2010 since then I have been in many wonderful DT's. Now I hope I can get the chance to bring some inspiration to Creatalicious.
