Meet the Team!

And to round out our crafty team, we are thrilled to welcome these talented ladies!!! 
Join us on Friday for our first challenge!!!


I have been married to my college sweetheart, Doug Houck, for nearly 23 years.  Doug is completely supportive of my craft hobby/therapy.  He even knows a few crafty terms, like vellum, acetate, card stock, and patterned paper.  Our fraternal twin girls are nearly 12 years old; one looks like me and the other like my husband. The only thing I like better than paper play is our family time in the evenings and on weekends.


I live in Central New York with my husband, 2 daughters (Sierra 21 & Marina 18) and 2 doggie girls (Pepper & Peanut).  I work as a manager & buyer at a large prom dress store so I get to work around rhinestones, jewels, and lots of colors in my real job as well as my papercrafting hobby. 



Hi, y'all! Shelly, here! I'm a wife and mom to 4 beautiful, crazy, fun loving kids! When I find a chance to escape (which is usually locking myself in the room. lol), you'll find me crafting away. Making cards is what I love to do! My style is CAS, though sometimes I like to mix things up a bit! I am thrilled to be working with such wonderful and amazing ladies!
