She gets a different introduction than everyone else because she has been instrumental in helping me navigate the crafting world. She's a fellow Nebraskan and a down-right good person.
Sit down friends (or stay seated) while I share with you with a tale of beauty and wonder. (Are you impressed, yet?)
Journey with me back to January 18, 2017 when on a fateful Wednesday, Beth posted about using Victorine Original's 1502 Train stamp in a card. Then, she tagged the Victorine Originals Facebook page when posting it to social media. She couldn't have known the fate which would befall her.
As the owner of the page, I saw a notification about her post. I cruised on over to her blog and fell in crafty-love! All of her pretties! Such talent! Surely, she was a rock star, a giant among crafters. Would she have time to even acknowledge my thanks?
Timidly, I messaged her. I thanked her for tagging the page and asked if she would make more pretties if I sent her stamps. She looked down from her throne in tolerance and fondness! (She said sure and started posting images from products she made. The best part? She's the nicest person in the world to work with. If you get the chance, make her acquaintance!)
She asked me if I had a blog and I had to go searching to find that answer. Now, here we are, breathing life into this blog again! We have design challenges again thanks to her innocent question. When I saw the part on here about a design team, she answered my 100 questions about it and now we have eight talented ladies creating stunning designs.
I asked all of my design team members to send me information about themselves. Here's what Beth sent:
"I started being crafty at a very young age. I was doing hand embroidery and using a sewing machine before I was even in grade school. Through the years, I have tackled many different forms of crafting, but my current crafting love is with paper. I got my first taste in the paper crafting world when I made my wedding invitations, programs, etc. over 10 years ago. I am a collector of beautiful papers and love to use them to create many cards and 3D paper items. My single most favorite scrapbooking tool is my Silhouette Cameo. Without it, I wouldn’t be able to create nearly as much as I do. As a wife, a mom of three young boys and working part time as a nurse, I fit in crafting in the “spare” moments as often as I can. It is my passion and my ME time!"
This is the project that she's most proud of creating.
I need to get my hands on the template for that! So pretty!

I am so delighted you have read this far. Beth has become one of my favorite people and I am deeply grateful to her for helping me figure out which way I want to take Victorine Originals. I'm sure you will love her and her designs as much as I do.
Love and Crafty Kisses,
