Risa West - Design Team

My name is Risa West and I am a happily married mom of three, my 12 yr. old son and a set of fraternal twins who are my step-children.  I worked for GM for 26 yrs. and in my wildest dreams, I never would have imagined myself making cards or anything related to it!  I stumbled into the crafting world four years ago while at a garage sale.  The card items on sale were beautiful and my curiosity got the best of me, I wanted to learn how to make cards etc.  I purchased a few catalogs and cards and basically learned different techniques from various blogs throughout "blogland" and now I am totally hooked!

At the moment, Copic Markers are my coloring medium of choice and I can't imagine coloring without them.  If I were stranded on an island, my crafting items of choice would be my Copic Markers, ribbon,pearls and of course my coffee pot .
