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 (www.littlecropshop.blogspot.com) 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
