Design Team Reveal Day 12- Brenda Caldrow

Hello crafty friends my name is Brenda and I live in Rokewood, Victoria, Australia with my husband and sons, Riley (14) and Harley (13). It is a very small farming community that we live in. I'm also a school bus driver for our local Primary School and do charter work occasionally. My inspiration for my craft and enjoyment of life comes from my boys, family and friends. I feel the joy and love they give me is in my work.
I have been crafting for many years now and changing my style along the way with the introduction of new products such as being able to work and delve into mixed media. I love to try new things and broaden my knowledge. I love also to fussy cut which has always been a favorite of mine since I very first started. Layouts, Cards and Off The Page it doesn't matter as I love them all.

Design Team Reveal Day 9-Toccara

Design Team Coordinator

My name is Toccara Feliciano but I am mostly called "Tee".  I have three beautiful young ladies and have been married to my high school sweetie for 14 years. I live in sunny Florida where I love to read books outside, scrapbook and work on new items for my online shop on etsy CraftyChic Byhand.  I started scrapbooking while in high school and fell in love with it. When I graduated from high school in year 2000 I went full blown scrapbooker and that is where 12x12 inch paper became my life saver!  I love making memories and being involved anywhere I have the chance to inspire and encourage others. 

I have a few blogs...LOL I have my personal blog where I post my book reviews as I am a Professional Reader and blogger for Tyndale House Publishing, also where I post my crafty layouts and just who I am and this crazy life of mine. My blog is called: Life and Creations of Tee I also fell in love with a different type of crafting with Bible Journaling as I get to exercise my faith in God and be creative at the same time. How cool is that? I have my own online ministry site for women called Beautiful Awakening. I love getting visitors and emails from people all over the world even places I have never heard of telling me how my ministry has helped them in some way or another.  It is one of the greatest Joys. It is definitely something I am proud to have been given the opportunity to do as I love to encourage and inspire others.  

I have so many things I do in my 33 years of life so far I swear I have no idea how I get it done! From working in ministry and having a love for Women's Ministry, to Assistant Youth Director, to my full time job as  Faculty Coordinator in Education, being a wife, and mom to three girls two of whom are teenagers all while having scrappy time, I hope that my layouts inspire you and brightens your day as this is the life of Tee :)  Happy Crafting and Blessings!
