Welcome to the Pursuit of CraftYness blog!

We are a creative group of crafters who have joined together to form the Pursuit of CraftYness. We are the former designers who made up the Paper Salon DT. Recently, the company's plans changed with regards to our team; our friendship prevailed.

We decided to form the Pursuit of CraftYness to continue in our creative journey, together. Our team consists of: Anabelle O'Malley, Fiona Carter, Jennifer Ellefson, Jessica Witty, Julia Sandvoss, Kelly Grundhauser, Linda Beeson, Melanie Douthit, Melissa Phillips, Miki Benedict, Sherry Wright, and Stacey Stamitoles.

Watch for a post (later this morning) with projects inspired by a sketch that Julia Sandvoss put together for us. We decided "transition, new beginnings, changes..." would be a great focus for us. Many of us had been on the design team for 2-3 years, so we are dealing with a transition/change that most of us had not experienced. We are so thankful to have each other as friends and to collaborate as creative artists.

We will be posting 2-3 times a week and each of us will rotate in authoring our posts and sharing our crafts. We will post challenges for reader participation, share our tips, ideas and even have a few giveaways along the way. We hope you will join us in on our creative journey and craft Your own stYle.

I'm sorry to hear that Paper Salon no longer needs a DT. But how wonderful for you ladies to stick together and create this wonderful opportunity! What a way to make lemonade! Best of luck to you all!
