Here are a few words from Suzanne
Hi, my name is Suzanne and I use to be a member of the design team for Make My Monday! I still miss the ladies very much - it's a friendly, low stress design team to be on. I have been papercrafting for over 7 years now and I cannot imagine my life without it now. Crafting has opened many doors for me. I have made lots of new friends both in "real life" and "cyber life" - I make no secret of the fact that I find Crafers the most generous and friendly of people, always willing to share and inspire. I was introduced to card making by my ever patient husband who knew I needed a "hobby" as I was obssessed with housework and nothing else. 7-years later I bet he rues that day - (1) the housework is now last on my list of things to do and (2) we probably could have paid our mortgage off if I had not been buying craft stash. My style I believe is quite varied - I do tend to flit from one thing to another - loving all colours and styles. The only thing I know is that I love layers and detail (aka cluttered) and that I cannot do "clean and simple" to save my life but that does not mean I cannot appreciate the CAS genre as I love to drool over other people's creations and dream if only. I am very proud to call myself a "papercrafter" and am a member of the Craft Room Challenge, Marianne Design World and Divas and It's all About the Vintage & Beauty design teams. At the start of the year I had a very full nest (4 of them) at home but come the end of the year I will just have one son left at home - and I now have my own craft room which is lovely. Life is busy with working full-time, granddaughter, local council work and crafting but I consider myself to be blessed and my glass is always half full! Wishing you all very happy crafting days. Suzanne xx

Here's a few words from Avril
I was thrilled to be invited to be the Guest Designer at MMM and its an honour to see my work displayed alongside such a talented team.
I have always had an interest in crafting and was taught to sew and knit as a child. My love of sewing continued until recently when my friend persuaded me to go to a card class with her. From then I was 'hooked' on cardmaking, hence my blog name 'Mrs. B's Addiction' as chosen by my very understanding husband.
Although I enjoy most forms of papercraft, my main passion is stamping, and I do enjoy 'vintage'.
I visited Avril's blog and these are a couple of my favourite pieces of hers
