Hello Crafty Friends,
My name is Conny Craig, I am short, thick and CUTE! ( Well I believe so in my own eyes) and I have CRAZY accent people seem to LOVE ( WINK WINK). I was born in Colombia, Cali – Salsa City (Grew up there until I was ten years old) and then Moved to Belize. Both places are very colorful and beautiful in their own way. In Belize I started developing a love for pens, Glitter, Stickers.I started by scrapbooking in my composition notebooks and wrapped the cover page with gift bags so it would look like a purse. My friend thought it was the prettiest thing she had ever seen and it was a “Conny’s Original”! In my composition notebook purse/scrapbook, I wrote poems, added picture of my friends and family and also drew and colored. Scrapbooking and my attraction/ love for pretty pens, paint, paper, and glue have always been a part of me. I remember loving arts and craft class when I was in Colombia as a little girl and it came naturally to me.
My personal style has developed into trendy/ephemera- it’s colorful, dimensional, and textured-my pages include a lot of different products and my projects are richly patterned with mixed fonts and embellishments. I also don’t mind getting a little messy by using mixed media and I love adding cut files. I love my Silhoutte- she is my BESTFRIEND, Ha!
Now,I live in Southern California and I’m married ( I met my husband in Belize)….. I have a beautiful baby girl named Savanna, a doggy named Dobby and cute Guinea pig -Lulu. I really enjoy crafts, traveling, and WINE. I hope to teach you or EVEN give you ideas about how to enjoy the art of anything that you enjoy doing because we all get inspired by SOMEONE.
My dream is to one day have classes or retreats for people that share the same love or want to learn new techniques. I love learning new techniques and styles of scrapbooking; challenging myself either when creating a layout, mini album, card, happy mail, traveler notebook or an altered DIY project. Most recently, I have been sharing some of my work on my Blog, Pinterest, and Instagram a lot more often. I just recently started makig videos for my Youtube Channel and I know I can do a little/LOT better but practice makes perfect, so I am not giving up on that one.
So ,here on this blog!I’m just going to tell my story with arts and crafts/DIY or in any other way I can share what’s happening in my life…with pretty paper of course !!! 🙂
Thank you for stopping by!
