Fair warning, I am shamelessly promoting a friend in this blog. Since I wanted to focus on crafts and hobbies this week, I decided to share a resource some of you might find helpful.
Like me, Debbie Warner has worked in IT for years. During the day, she is a dedicated and experienced project manager. However, she is also one of the most creative and talented people I know. (There seems to be something about working in a very technical field like IT which makes people go in the opposite direction with their free time.)
I have witnessed (and benefited from) Debbie’s skills with candle-making and jewelry-making in the past. More recently, she has been focusing on paper crafting. She is so enthused about it, she works some evenings and weekends at a brick-and-mortar craft store where she teaches classes. (Having co-trained with Debbie in the past, I am sure she is awesome!) She also has an online blog (http://debrahwarner.com/) in which she shares beautiful photos of cards she has made, and provides the directions to make them.
So rather than me blathering on longer, telling stories about Debbie, I will let her work tell the tale. Below are some photos of cards she has designed. You can find the material list and directions for each of these on her blog. Even if you don't create cards, you might – like me – find yourself simply appreciating their beauty and the underlying craft. Enjoy!
I write historical fiction, and I invite you to share the journey to published author with me.
