Maureen, Design Team Leader 

I am Maureen, I am 33 years old, I’ve been married to Daniel for 14 years and we have 4 children. I trained as a nurse a few years ago but was pregnant when I qualified and while I took some time to have a couple of babies, hubby is off at uni training to be a Social Worker. In the meantime, I’ve rediscovered my love of crafting! I have always drawn things, I studied Art and Design at school and after getting married and having my son I discovered card making thanks to a friend and crafty tv channels! That was 12 years ago! I didn’t do much while I studied from 2006-2009 and then after having the babies I didn’t really do anything until about a 2 years and now my addiction is greater than ever! I love learning new crafty techniques and discovering new products and 'must haves' and expanding my stash!

I live in the state of Georgia in the good ole' south where they call us all Georgia Peaches! LOL  I am the wife to a wonderful man, Kevin, who is from Australia. He is very tolerant of my crafting!! And he is always complimenting me on everything I make. LOL  He is a bit biased I think!!  I am a mother of three, Taylor (20), Michael (15) and Bailey (13). We definitely have our trials and tribulations, but I love them all dearly and wouldn't trade being a mother for the world. We have two dogs, T-Bone and Brisket and two cats Highlight and White-Out. Do you see our theme? LOL  The dogs are named after cuts of beef LOL and the cats are office supplies LOL!!! I know.. we are very goofy!! I have been crafting since the dawn of ages .. Okay.. maybe that is a little bit of an exaggeration, but I first found a small scrapbooking store right after I had Taylor.. so that is 20 years ago!!!

I'm an accountant working full time and a mother of 4 great kids.  I have an amazing husband who understand that in order to keep my sanity through all this I need to craft ;) I live in Quebec, Canada, so a lot of my crafting is done with French sayings. I have been crafting over 21 years and tried my hands at all kinds of techniques over the years.  I started blogging in March of 2012 in order to join challenges.  I became totally hooked!!!!  I can't believe this world existed and I only found out about it then.  I see blogging as a wonderful opportunity to improve my card making abilities. I have realized that through the web I get to meet amazing people from all over the world and learn from them.

Sharon, Design Team

Hi! I’m Sharon and I live Down Under in Australia. I’ve been stamping and crafting for quite a long time and I love it! I was predominately a card maker but lately have moved towards journalling and mixed media. I love things “out of the ordinary & different” so you can imagine I am so excited to be part of the SLS Lines Team – I just love the quirky and funky images I get to work with. I hope I can inspire you with some of my creations!

I am a retired teacher (in my early 60s), a mother of 4, grandmother of 3. My 3 sons and families live in Australia. My daughter lives in the UK. I have enjoyed crafting all my life, but have only fairly recently starting 'blogging' about it. My first DT was with Pretty Paper Studios in Dubai - My husband and I have been expats since '98 living in Australia, Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi and India. We have recently returned to the UK. I am now on various DTs ranging from fairly mainstream to left of centre. I work with lots of digis but also physical stamps and like to use different techniques/folds etc.

Holley, Design Team

Hi, my name is Holley. I live in Austin, TX. I have enjoyed crafting ever since I was a little kid. I took art classes in high school and college even though I got my degree in Electrical Engineering. I worked all sorts of giant projects for the military and NASA but after two brain surgeries I decided I would do what I really love which is crafting! I enjoy all sorts of art, but stamping and card making is my favorite. I love to color and share creations with others. I totally adore unusual, funky, fun and quirky images, things that just make me smile and give others a little giggle. I can't wait to see what SLS Lines images comes out with next!
