We are thrilled to share with you the beautiful creations of our Picket Fence Studios Design Team. Here’s a little bit about each of them in their own words.
Hi! I’m Angie, mom of two kind and talented people, and wife to one fascinating man. We share our home with two outrageous felines who entertain us daily. I started stamping in 2011 after picking up a rubber stamp and a blank pre-folded card set at a craft store. After I gave my handmade gift to my daughter’s teacher, she told me about Splitcoaststampers which launched my creative journey in the world of stamping! A year later, I was invited to join my first design team and the following year, I was honored and thrilled to accept a spot on the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen Team! I am passionate about creating and sharing what I learn but most of all, I treasure connecting with people through art! I am excited and delighted to be part of the Picket Fence Design Team!
Greetings from the eastern side of Washington state! I’m Anna Wight, or “SweetMissDaisy” if you find me on SplitCoastStampers.com. Growing up I had a love for horses, nature, and anything artsy, which led me to completing an Art degree at an Oregon university. I find great joy in photography, drawing, coloring, watercolor painting, and creating small art in the form of cards. My card style leans towards clean and simple, and I love using cute, whimsical images. I hope you enjoy the projects I share! Find me on Instagram and Pinterest with user name Anna Wight.
Hi, I’m Ceal. Mom of three and wife to one very supportive husband. We currently reside in the Smoky mountains of western North Carolina with our fur baby Shih Tzu, Willis. I have always been a crafter in some form since childhood and started papercrafting in 2004. I fell in love with card making because it didn’t take months to finish a card like it did scrapbooking. I am a clean and simple stamper and you can find me on social media by visiting my blog Simply Beautiful, on splitcoaststampers with the same username Simplybeautiful or on instagram as Cealp. I am super excited to be a part of Picket Fence Studios and can’t wait to share with you.
Hello. My name is Heather Ruwe. I’m just a crafty gal trying to spread a little sunshine through card making. I’ve been crafting since I was very young and it has remained a constant joy in my life. Speaking of joy, I’m married to my best friend (Ted) and we have two sons (Alex and Aiden). If I’m not in my studio creating, you can find me watching really bad reality television, organizing my craft supplies, or at a concert (I’m a music junkie). I’m so honored to be on the Picket Fence Design Team.
Hi, I am Ilina Crouse. I live in Atlanta, GA with my wonderful husband of 13 years and our 3 little
monkeys: Anna-6, Milena-5 and Jason-3. As you can see I have my hands full. During the day I work as
Electrical Engineer/Bid Manager for Siemens. I know doesn’t sound fun at all, but it is (at least for me), as
it involves creativity, but different kind of one. Early in the morning I am a runner( I love long distance runs
and it’s a way to burn off some stress everyday life brings) and at night I am crafter.
I have been making cards since I was a little child and still lived in Macedonia (South Eastern Europe)
where supplies were limited so I had to get really creative.. I love simple and clean designs and I love to
experiment with different techniques and coloring mediums.I am honored (and excited beyond words) to
join the Picket Fence Studios Design Team and I hope to inspire you with my creations.
Hi! My name is Jennifer Timko and I live in Warrenton, VA, which is a small town in Northern Virginia. My husband and I have two boys who are 15 and 12. I started making cards in 2003 when I was on maternity leave with my oldest and fell in love with this hobby. I have a CAS style which helps me bring a bit of order to my ever so chaotic schedule, I think. When I’m not at a soccer field with my boys or in my craft room, I’m a pilot for United Airlines on the Airbus 319/320. I love that I get to visit many of my crafty friends as I travel. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Picket Fence Studios Design Team and look forward to sharing my projects with you!
My name is Judy Rozema and I am so happy and humbled to be a part of this amazing team! An Arizona transplant, I currently live in Central Nebraska with my husband of 36 years, our water turtle (we have had him for over twenty four years!) and our sweet Lab/Jack Russell mix, Fiona. We have two grown children and two grandchildren. By day I am the Executive Director of our Community Theatre. I love going on junk jaunts, finding interesting things to photograph, and I love traveling and finding off the beaten path places. I love the hearts of fellow stampers – such sweet people! I have been crafting for a very long time, as my mom was an avid crafter. She probably started me on the journey, when she taught me to crochet in high school. I love mixed media, clean and simple, and everything inbetween. You can find me hanging out at my blog, Joy in a JAR, and on Facebook and Instagram by the same name! I am excited to share Picket Fence Studios with you!
Hello from Cincinnati, Ohio. I live here with my husband, three amazing boys (11, 14 and 16), and our two handsome Golden Retrievers. I’m always on the go, keeping up with the crazy school and sports schedules. It’s a season of life that seems to be flying by! In addition to my soccer mom duties, I also hold two part time jobs-preschool teaching assistant and athletic trainer. In the midst of the chaos, I NEED my crafty time. It all started 20 years ago at a party. I am card maker, but have done a fair share of scrapbooking over the years. I love that I can color and get my girly fix through paper crafting. I am fortunate to be working on several design teams and am thrilled to be joining the Picket Fence Studios Design Team.
