Jessie Mitchell
Hi My name is Jessie from Edogg Sugarlips and Princess Buttercup (edoggsugarlipsandprincessbuttercup.blogspot.com).  I have been blogging for about a year and a half and I have loved every second of it.  I love to create just about anything but altering items has been my craze lately.  I enjoy making whimsical items that are girly. I have been crafting most of my life I come from a super crafty family,my paper crafting addiction started about 3 years ago. If I am not crafting, I am either spending time with my family or reading. I am really excited to share the Pinque Peacock products with you and hope you enjoy what we make

 I consider myself a serial crafter.   Growing up, I taught myself just about any art medium I could get my hands on.    I still pick up several new art hobbies a year, but tend to focus on paper crafting for mail and mixed media art, photography, jewelry, oil painting, and knitting/crocheting.   During the late 80's and early 90's, I taught at several art studios and crafting stores.   I'm married to a wonderful man and have three adult children.   Animals have always and still play a huge part of my life. They are my other children! I have a few hairy children (3 cats and two dogs).   One of my all time favorite activities is spending time with my two little dogs, Oliver and Layla.   They are what I call my perPETual children, because they are like having two lively three year olds around all the time! I will probably be one of those elderly women with too many pets. Until then, you'll find me covered in hair, paint, and having fun making beautiful things!

Heather Flaherty
Hi My name is Heather Flaherty and I am so happy to be a part of the Pinque Peacock Team.. I live in the sunny state of Florida & am adjusting to East Coast life .. My husband is in the Military and we have 2 Daughters 15 & 13 years old ..
Crafting is something I do especially for me and I find myself more creative when everyone in the house is asleep, I am a midnight crafter ha ha!
I started Crafting 9 years ago while living in Japan. I wanted to find a creative outlet, I picked up a scrapbooking magazine one day and then found the Cricut. From the Cricut I was invited to a Stampin Up Party and discovered the love of stamping.

Paula Driver
Hi, my name is Paula Driver, Creator of Scrap Your World.   My blog is http://Scrapyourworld1.blogspot.com .  I also have a Facebook fan page that
is http://www.facebook.com/ScrapYourWorld1  where I post my projects and interact with my crafty friends and followers.   I started my blog Jan 15th 2011.   I'm a paper crafter, I love making altered journals, scrapbook pages, and my passion is all sizes of premade albums.  I make them with cards, paperbags, and Paper towel rolls.  I love vintage shabby chic style, but I also love very weird off the wall type stuff to (like alice and wonderland style).  I use to have a Soccer hobby. My daughter played travel soccer since she was 5 years old and we went everywhere. It was as addicting as scrapping!! But as of a year ago she decided that she did not want to continue because of injuries and focus on school since she will be going to college next year.   So that has ended and has given me more time to play with my 1st passion which is crafting.  I started dabbeling into scrapbooking when she was born 16 years ago just to make her albums. Then I got out of it for a while since we were traveling so much with her in soccer. I picked it back up about 5 years ago because I needed something to give me my ME time at home. It sparked an addiction that I can not control now!! I love crafting, and meeting new people on Facebook that have the same passion as I do with paper crafting.   I am born and raised a North Carolina girl.  Still reside in North Carolina.
My “tip” to crafters would be, Just have fun with it.   I learned that I can't always do everything all the time, but I can do some things some of the time.  I love to ZUMBA!!  
Well one of my future ambitions came true this week, I wanted to be on a DT team and now I have the honor of being with some wonderful Peacock ladies this year!   My challenge is to keep my scrap cove organized so that I'm ready for future projects and that I can get them done in a timely manner by having everything were it should be. I don't always manage that but I try my best.

Teresa Kaufhold
Hello, My name is Teresa Kaufhold and I would love to have you visit me at my blog, www.createenjoyshare.blogspot.com.  I am from the Dayton,OH area. 
I started my blog in October of 2010, but was not a frequent blog contributor until I started on my first design team.  Currently I am a PROUD member of the Pinque Peacock Design Team as well as Cuttin' and Stampin design team and also My Kreative Karma design team!
I am a paper crafter. It seems these days I mainly make cards, although I do enjoy making mini albums, scrapbook layouts and home decor.
I am very excited to get to know my fellow DT sisters her at the Pinque Peacock!

Nupur Patel
“Design and creativity is the fundamental soul of a human made creation that ends up expressing in form of successive products”. . . is what I firmly believe in.
After having been introduced to Visual Arts at Ecole Mondiale World School-Mumbai,India, I developed my interest in arts. Playing with various colors, medias, elements and explorations opened new doors for me and lead to a new world of Mixed Media. After having learned and explored the handwork it was high time that I step into Graphics & pursued BDes in Graphic Design from Raffles Design International (Mumbai,India) as I truly think a blend of both the handwork and the graphics could do wonders.
So here I am all ready to unleash my creativity and reach new horizons.

Susie Gerdes
Hello! My name is Susie Gerdes. I’ve been a crafter and artist most of my life and scrapbooking for about 18 years. My grandmother taught me to knit and crochet when I was really young. My mom was into ceramics and oil painting/tole painting, so I also did those. I love to alter everything and look at everything through crafter eyes to see what else I can do with it! Mini-albums are also a passion of mine. I’m known in the crafting world as SusieScrapper. I’ve belonged to a lot of different forums/groups through the years, but not too many the last few years. I did get into ‘tagging’ a couple of years ago and am planning on getting back into it soon. Photoshop is something I want to get more familiar with, but need to make the time. This year I’m planning on doing more projects that are out of my comfort zone and learning new techniques. Pinterest is a great source of inspiration and am hoping that I bring the same inspiration to my crafty friends. That is also my goal being an artist/creator for Pinque Peacock, to inspire and create projects that will make everyone want to try doing it to.

I am the owner of Created by Donna K http://createdbydonnak.blogspot.com.  I began blogging in 2008.  I am a paper crafter at heart, but will try just about anything once! I would say that I love “vintage style” but I prefer to consider myself eclectic because I enjoy all forms of art
I enjoy riding my bicycle and have participated in the MS150 bike event for several years. This year my goal is to raise 1,000 and to ride a century. I have information about this on my blog as well. I started crafting when I was a child. Macrame was the thing in the 70’s! Yes, I’m old... ok ok! It wasn’t until 1999 that a friend introduced me to scrapbooking. I put it aside while my kids were busy in sports and activities and it wasn’t until 2005 that I picked it up again thanks to my dear friend and paper partner in crime. I have been actively making cards, altered gifts and other paper projects since then.   I am originally from Coloma, Michigan and currently reside in Eastern, North Carolina. We were a military family for 29 years and 10 months.  My “tip” would be to find something you enjoy and remember that we all started at the beginning. You have to find your niche and you can only do that by practice and involvement. Get out there, meet new people and find your happy place in the creative world.   I have learned to take better care of myself this past year as a personal note. On a creative note I have learned to make journals that I have given as gifts that people have actually cried over once they received it. Sharing my art has been such a blessing.   Nothing personal... I’m pretty much out there. I love to have fun and laugh and enjoy social media and friendships in a positive light. Life is short... you know the ole cliche’.  I hope to continue to learn and grow and get better at my hobby!  I have faced a LOT of challenges and not sure if I’ve even begun to challenge them all but my project photos were a huge obstacle for me. I’ve gotten MUCH better but have a long way to go.

Hi! My name is Lisa Woodward and you can find my blog, MyCraftySpaces, at http://mycraftyspaces.blogspot.com. I have had this blog for a little over a year to showcase my crafty projects and challenges. If I had to chose my favorite style of crafting, it would be vintage/shabby chic, particularly introducing new media and ephemeral into my crafts. I am a collector (hoarder, really) of “found” items to use in new ways. Apart from my love of papercrafting, I am a soapmaker, specializing in all natural, organic products. I love combining artistic talents, along with the brainiac stuff. I also love cooking, and experimenting with spices, herbs and dishes for my family.   I was introduced to the world of papercrafting in a round-a-bout way as a result of my soap business….I started crafting homemade paper for packaging, and bought my first cricut (and Lacy Labels) to make my product tags….Can you believe my first trip to Hobby Lobby was to purchase mulberry for a special packaging? From there, I grew into making gift cards, custom invitations and cards, and it just progressed.   If I were to give advice to a new, or trepiditious crafter, it would be…experiment..and do not be afraid to fail. Much of what I know how to do was discovered by accidents, and I love taking an idea and improving upon it. Much of this has to do with my backwoods, North Carolina upbringing, and my father. He very much instilled in me that if you can’t find how to do something, it’s because no one has needed it as much as you, go ahead…try it, continue to improve upon it. Life is like a crafting project…complete for the moment, but always an improvement that can be made and new skills to be learned.   The rest of my life centers around my husband and family, and our furry children. I am very blessed to spend my days at home caring for my family, gardening and crafting away! I hope to continue crafting to new levels of involvement and my goal this year is to take more classes, workshops, etc. The biggest challenge I have faced is learning new techniques, so I hope that taking classes and workshops will help open my horizons, and I will pass those lessons onto those who follow me and craft with me!

Beckie Woodall
Hello, my name is Beckie Woodall and you can find me blogging at    http://justbcreativecrazy.blogspot.com  I've been blogging for 1 1/2 years.     I'm primarily a card maker. However, I have lately taken a liking to vinyl.   I've been crafting off and on my whole life. I purchased a Cricut the end of August 2012, and while researching projects to do discovered the world of paper craft blogging. I started my own blog the first week of September 2012 and have been a die hard paper craft blog fan ever since.  I've been born and raised in Southeastern Kentucky.   New crafter/bloggers should just jump out there and get started. The crafty world has lots of awesome people ready to help you find your way. Be a commenter...if you expect people to follow your blog, follow and comment on theirs. Be dependable.   I'm stoked to say that my hubby bought me a Silouette Cameo for Christmas. I've been challenged to learn how to use it and how to use images to create cut files. It has been a blast, and I have only tipped the iceburg for what the machine can do.    I have several people to send a huge thank you to...for helping, standing by me and giving me 1st time Design Team chances. The list is so long, I won't bore you but to list a few...Thanks Jessica Esch (Chick-n-Scrap Blog), Jessica Shelton (Craft Shaque Blog)... There are LOTS and LOTS of AWESOME friends I have made along the way, and I continue to make new BESTIES everyday.

I am a stay at home mom to a gorgeous and smart 3 year old little girl. Her daddy recently retired from law enforcement after almost 30 years so I have more time to craft since he's home all the time too. I love using my Cameo and digital stamps. I started stamping almost 20 years ago and have a huge stamp collection that I never touch, but I love them too. I love all embellishments, the more sparkly the better and you can never have too much glitter. I'm so thrilled to be part of the Peacocks and look forward to what the future holds for us all.

Kristin Keller
Hi! I am Kristin, aka Mama Hen Peacock :D . I am 39 years old (not holding...yet) and have been crafting all of my life. My mom got me started, and I just fell in love, especially with anything tactile...I love textiles...ribbon, fabric, paper, buttons, flowers, etc...I started scrapbooking 18 years ago, then, I started working at an art store, teaching scrapbooking classes...and THAT was all she wrote! I said, “I won't get sucked in”...lol...17 years later, I STILL work there AND I got WAY sucked in! I work with all different media now, from scrapbooking with papers to stamping to painting and back again, I have dabbled in much! LOL...I have been blogging for about 3 years. I really enjoy it and love to hear from others what they think of my work. I also love to cook and bake and I love to spend time with my 5 children (ages 19 to 3). I was married to my best friend and soul mate for 13 wonderful years, he passed away a few months ago, but I am still blessed, I have 5 beautiful extensions of him! I am from Southwestern PA...yes, I do speak Pittsburghese, lol! I was born and raised here...so I am a true Steelers fan through and through!
Recently, I have finally given in to my creative side, I am embracing it. I don't always “do” the things most people do with certain medias...I enjoy coming up with new ways to use many medias...currently, I LOVE my copic markers and inks. You never know WHAT I may come up with next!
I met Jessica from Pinque Peacock a little bit ago and she helped me out of the creative slump I had been in since my husband got sick. So, look out! I have learned not to worry about making a mistake, just keep working on it, allowing the creativity to flow, and it will all work out in the end...and if it doesn't, just start over! I am very blessed to be a part of the Pinquettes! These are an incredible group of ladies, I can't wait to get to know them all
better! Looking forward to the next 6 months!

Rhonda Bewley-Ratliff
Hello there!!… Rhonda here, from Kentucky and I thought I'd share a little bit about ME!… I am married to the greatest guy in the world and have four awesome kids... all of which are grown now which has allowed me the opportunity to do more crafting. I have been crafting since about the 4th grade when my teacher showed me how to work with oil pastels in art class... from there it has been a little bit of everything. Till I found a love for creating cards and invitations, floral design and my new passion in altered art.   I have bee blogging about a year now... and LOVE IT!I have had a wonderful time meeting new people, learning many awesome techniques and been given many great opportunities. The crafting world has opened many adventurous doors for over the last year and I am loving every minute of it.

Janet Royer
Hello, I am Janet Jon Royer (my Aunt suggested I be named after my Dad, John but without the H for a girl).   My blog name is Janet’s Planet! The blog address is http://janetscreativeworld.blogspot.com/.   My former co-workers always thought I lived on my own little planet.   I”ve been blogging a little over 2 years.   I love crafts of all kinds! Currently I am into paper crafts. Rubber stamping, scrapbooking, digital, etc. I love to sew when I have plenty of time! I’m a person who wants to make something, get it done, and see the result immediately or sooner! I’m not very patient. If I have to leave it before it’s finished, it’s probably not going to get done.   Queen of Unfinished projects have been my middle name for years.   I love to read, volunteer with Girl Scouts, and will try any craft if I see something that sparks my interest.
I had two very creative aunts who taught me how to sew my own Barbie doll clothes, before you could buy them premade. My Barbie was the best dressed dolls in town! My dad made furniture out of scraps of wood, and metal hangers. (deprived wasn’t I?) My aunts taught me how to crochet, knit, macrame and cross stitch. Being a Girl Scout leader, Staff member, I’ve had to learn many crafts and teach them to children and adults. I love that!!  I was born and raised right here in Terre Haute, IN. Haven’t ventured very far, but love to travel every chance I get.    My best tip is to Try! There’s no harm in failure! Try a new technique, a new product, new anything! Just go for it! It might just become your signature craft!   Something I am so glad to have learned about this yea is Inking! I learned how much difference it makes to ink edges, ink pieces on layering projects to make them pop! I thought it made the item look dirty, or smudged, but now I love how it makes things stand out.   I’m a mom to two daughter, and two step-sons.   We have 4 grandchildren aged 3 months to 12 years of age. One lives nearby, one is in Ohio, and 2 are North Carolina, so we’re sad we don’t get to see them often.  I’d love to see where the world of paper crafts take me! I love learning new techniques!  A challenge I have faced, but conquered in crafting is:
Being left-handed! Scissors, other tools are geared to right handers and for knitting I have to reverse patterns or I’m just purling.

Hi, my name is Robin..aka the cricut scrapper.
I have been married for 25 years to a wonderful man and have 3 terrific children, who are now grown and out on their own. My youngest just moved out last week :(
I am a southern girl, so I love, the outdoors! Going to the lake, four-wheeling in the mountains and just having fun in this beautiful state that I live in :)
I also love, love ,love crafting of all kinds!! Papercrafting, altering things, home decor and recently started crocheting. I get my passion for crafting from my mom, she has made everything you can think of and more!
Almost 3 years ago, I got a Cricut for Christmas and to be honest didn't really know how to use it and didn't do much with it for several months. Then I had to have surgery and was stuck at home with nothing to do lol. So I discovered you tube and decided to learn how to use my cricut :) After finding several tutorials and discovering the blog world, I learned how to use my machine and thought "why not jump in and make a blog of my own to share my creations". So I jumped !!! hehe, and here I am.  I have since met wonderful people that I consider friends even though I have never met them :D and am so glad I found other crafters that share the same passion as I do for making pretty things :) 
I feel very fortunate to be on this team with a group of wonderful ladies and hope that I can inspire you to make something pretty.

Jennifer Lorist
My name is Jennifer Lorist, most call me Jenn :) I have been married for almost 16yrs and have 2 kids who keep me on my toes! Ryan is 13 and will be starting high school in the fall, and Megan is 10 and will be going to Jr High in the fall!
At the age of 13 my grandmother and I took oil painting classes together, and that's where my love of art's & crafts started. At 16 I took tole painting classes and have been painting ever since. When I had my son I got introduced to Scrapbooking and have been hooked ever since. I love creating pages from the picture's we take on of our family vacations. In 2005 I was introduced to the Cricut bug and had to have every machine and cartridge known to man! I recently purchased the Cameo and have fallen in love with this machine, if you don't have it, I suggest you run out and buy it. It cuts are flawless :)
I am so honored to be apart of this design team and hope you follow us all on this new journey :)

An'Jenic Gibson
1. Hello I’m An’Jenic Gibson but most of blog world know me as AJ from AJ Scrapbooking & Cards.
2. You can visit at me here http://www.anjenicgbison.blogspot.com. I have been blogging for almost two years now. Although it seems much longer. I started my blog March 7.
3. I would have to say I don’t have a favorite craft because I’m always back and forward. Some day’s cards are my favorite, some day’s altered arts, scrapbooking and many other crafts are my favorite. I love all crafts. As far as technique and style those are the same as crafting. My style is always changing and my technique is based what I am up for at that time.
4. I would have to say beyond crafting my other hobby would be Reading & Spend time with my family. When I’m able to read I spend hours hidden in my book.
5. I started crafting when I moved to Virginia. I meet two dear friends. I meet Juan who would always ask AJ do you want to go to Scrabble. See Juna would meet with a group of women on Fridays. Little did I know they were scrapbooking and sewing. Now I must tell you Juan is from Malaysia. I then meet Daphne. My first visit to Daphne house was my very first time seeing what scrapbooking was and could be. So she gave me so many of her papers, stickers, tools and so much more. The next time I saw Juan I told her and she said AJ I have been trying to get you to come to scrapbooking on Fridays. See because Juan accent is so strong I never know she was asking me to go scrapbook with her. I started going and I felled in love with it.
6. I am from New Orleans, Louisiana
7. If I had one tip to share with a new crafter or blogger it would say just do it. Don’t be afraid of the blogging or crafting world. Every artist have their own style. If you love to distress everything do it. If you love write long post do it. Don’t let anything or anyone stop you from doing what you love no matter how good they think you are.
8. Well since the begging of 2013 I have learned to use my new Silhouette Cameo. I started with a Cricut and now I feel I’m in the big league. Lol How to cut SVG and Import stamped images to cut the out.
9. I would like to share with you all my wonderful family. Frist God is the head of my life. I’m a stay at home mom and I have an amazing husband. I’ve been a stay at home mom since 2006. I stated to work a little this year but I must say I my hubby have spoiled me and I love staying home. I’m a military spouse and I have two beautiful daughters: Terrion (10) Liana (4) and one handsome fur baby. I live in Washington State. I truly enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Life is shot and you should live it to the fullest.
10. When we have finished our military career I would like to own my own local craft shop.
11. I think this is one for every crafter. Trying to find my Mojo again. Last year after moving to WA I lost my mojo. I went from having a great support system of crafting friends to not having any craft friend for some months.
12. I think that the Pinque Peacock has done an awesome job with the question. I was able to tell who I am and what I love. It’s important to express who you are and what you love. I feel these questions did just that.
13. Not sure what I would give to the unasked question until they arise.
