New Design Team Member

Please welcome Annette Selders to our Design Team.

Hello, crafty friends!  My name is Annette Selders and my husband, 21 year old daughter and I live in a very small town in Iowa (USA).  While I have been a lifelong crafter, I discovered scrapbooking and paper crafting around 2008 and bought my first paper kit -the lovely Paper Garden set- from Close To My Heart.  My first Cricut followed soon after and I quickly became hooked.  In May of 2011 I became a consultant with CTMH and started going to and hosting crops.  Due to some ongoing health issues, I no longer work outside the home so crafting has really become my lifeline; the creativity helps boost my spirits and being a consultant and going to crops provides lots of socialization.  I also learned that I really enjoy teaching others about the joy of memory keeping and discovering their own creativity.  I began following challenges and blogging ( in 2012 but this is my first experience being on a design team and I'm so excited to join this super talented group of ladies.  One last note:  I always hear people complain about being too far behind in their scrapbooking and getting discouraged, but I literally inherited over 100 years of photos that I'm just starting to dip into so I tell those folks that nobody is further behind than me!  lol
