I live in Southern Alberta with my loving, very attractive and supportive husband Mark and our 2 boisterous children age 4 and 7. Anything to do with Vampires and the Fantasy Realm gets my attention, and yes that includes Twilight! I love Italian Sweet Cream in my coffee and there is nothing better than cupcakes with extra frosting(unless that something better is chocolate). I'm moved by the colors around me, emotions and the media. Creatively, I embrace change and love to try new things and I'm super excited about being a part of The Robins Nest design team. You will always know its me because I say "toodles" and "ABSOLUTELY" a whole bunch.
My name is IRIT and I am from sunny ISRAEL. I am really thrilled to be again on Robin's Nest DT and hope to inspire you all with new and different projects. In my "real life" I am a dentist, but for the last 5-6 years I do it as a part time job, because I need some extra time for my scrapping and crafting addiction and I have a lot of fun doing something else after 25 years of dentistry. I have been married for 29 years to a retired high police officer, who is the full time family cook these days. I am a mom to 4 grown ups: 2 sons and twin daughters. The empty nest is probably the main reason for my obsession for crafting - finally I have some time for myself. My oldest son is an army officer, married and a Dad of my first grandson Omer. The second one is " a world traveler" - for the last 6 years after his army service he is out of Israel for at least 9 months a year- lives and works in Spain. My twins are in their last year of college and my major scrapbooking inspiration. I need to say that I have been totally addicted to crafting since I was a little girl. For many years it was a polymer clay and jewelry making, but after I saw a scrapbook layout for the first time in my life (only 5 years ago during my visit to USA), I finally understood that I am in love with paper. Today I mostly scrap and do altered art and less card making. My style is mostly shabby and vintage, but sometimes I move to other styles too, all, but clean and simple one. I have been a design team member in about 9-10 challenge blogs and was a guest designer on lots of others during the last years, but since a last 2 years I design for manufacturers only. Right now I am a permanent designer for UK chipboard company named Tando creative, A2Z Scraplets Australian company,Pretty Little Studio paper company, Creative Inspirations Paint, Epiphany Crafts Tool company, WOW embossing powders company and Inspired by Stamping stamp company. I was a DT member for Best Creation paper and Cherry Lynn Designs die company for a year term, SNR staff member and a Guest Designer for several USA companies in the past. I was published in print in Israel several times and was published in every possible web magazine during the last years. Last, but not least- my other addiction is..... folk dancing. So if I am not in my crafting room- I am probably dancing. I am totally thrilled to be a member of this team. You are welcome to visit my blog
I am the eighth of eleven children, seven girls and four boys. My husband and I have been happily married for 18 years and have two boys. I have an Associates degree in fashion design, a bachelors degree in Apparel Design and Aesthetics and a Masters degree in Family and Consumer Economics.
After graduating, I worked for several apparel manufacturers in the Chicago area for short periods, as manufacturing continued to move overseas. Most of my experience is in retail apparel product development. There I helped develop and implement a computer aided design/spreadsheet software program that is used in apparel product development.
I am currently a stay at home mom who is passionate about using my Cricut and sewing machines. I started a non-profit scrapbooking guild with some friends and we meet monthly to scrapbook and do a little charity work. I am responsible for maintaining the S.C.R.A.P. Guild of Northern IL’s blog and Facebook page.
I have two stores on Etsy where I sell dust covers for all types of electronic cutters, you can find them here: www.scrappincovers.etsy.com and www.scrapguild.etsy.com.
I have scrap booked for 13 years, I sew, and do a little bit of all types of crafts. I enjoy blogging, cut files, scrapbook pages, techniques and more at my blog too: www.cricutcraftyclare.blogspot.com. I love glitter and bling and making my own embellishments for less!
My design team experience, includes a previous term with The Robin’s Nest and two terms with Art Glitter. You can find my Art Glitter work here: http://www.artglitter.com/guestdesigners.html#ClareDempsey
