The fabulous... Valerie Ward
My name is Valerie, and I am so excited to be joining the Drive By Crafts Design Team! My wonderful husband & I met in college; we have 4 amazing kids (ages 15-19) & 2 sweet little Shih-Tzu's. We just moved to Iowa City six months ago from the Chicago suburbs and we're loving it!
I’ve been scrapbooking since I was a child, and I discovered cardmaking 6 years ago when I started my job at a craft store, which changed my entire focus of crafting! I’m a Treatment Coordinator at an orthodontist office, and when I’m not busy working or being swallowed up by my family, you can always find me in my fantastic craft room enjoying the glorious world of creativity!
I’ve been blogging since January, 2012, and it has turned into such a great journey for me, as I’ve met amazing people and made so many wonderful new friends. Now I'm very excited to begin my new journey with Drive By Crafts!
The Fabulous... Dana Joy
I started blogging in 2009 working with stamp companies featuring their products on my handmade greeting cards. I have a passion for engaging with people and sharing my knowledge of papercrafting. I continuously strive to educate myself and expand my mind to learn new techniques that I can share with my audience. Sharing inspiration and new techniques with craft products that I love.
The Fabulous... Andrea Shell
I am married to my soul mate, a wonderful man who is very supportive and encouraging of my crafting. We have two beautiful children (Every parent thinks that, right?), a dog who likes to eat Legos and Shopkins, and a bunny after whom I'm constantly cleaning up. Like many crafters, I got into papercrafting via scrapbooking, but when the cardmaking bug bit, it bit HARD! My family would probably call it an obsession (Sound familiar anyone?); it's certainly a passion. I like to think I don't tend toward any one style, but I definitely have a weakness for cute critters and beautiful florals. I'm super excited to be joining Drive By Crafts DT and hope I can inspire you!
The Fabulous Ceal PritchettCeal Pritchett. I currently live in the Smokey Mountains in Western North Carolina with my very supportive husband, Robin and our fur baby Shih Tzu, Willis. I am so excited to be a part of the Drive By Crafts DT! I have crafting for years, of course like many I started as a scrapbooker but after attending a Stampin Up party I became a cardmaker practically over night. I love the paper crafting community, I have met so many fabulous friends, online and in real life. It is so full of caring people who like me, want to share some handmade kindness.
