Welcome our August Guest Designer

Morning everyone!
Hope you all had a nice weekend!  Did ya get a chance to see Team Yumi's post yesterday?  It's very rare that we have an Anything Goes challenge and what better way to start off the new season than that?  Great projects from Team Yumi, they really know how to start it up.  Can't wait to see who joins and what you decide to share. :)

I'm popping in today to share some wonderful news!  We haven't had a guest designer in quite some time, but I'm really excited to say, we do for August and she's AWEmazing!  She's just about the busiest individual I know and I'm so happy that she's going to be joining us this month.  She's been here a few times before to help us with our Winter release and our recent 1 year anniversary blog hop. 

WELCOME TO THE OHANA...
 
TAYLOR USRY!!

My name is Taylor Usry. I live with my amazing husband and wonderful kids in southern VA. I'm lucky enough to work full time from home, as the Social Media Manager for Crafter's Companion Ltd. having a crafty job that allows me be home with my family a lot, travel a bit, and craft on the side is like a dream come true!  Plus I love all things social media, too :)
I'm often asked if I have a particular style - I just say it's all over the map. There are few things I'm unwilling to try! I've had a love of crafting since I was very young, and I love passing this art on to my own children. I have a serious love of coloring!
In addition to working with the talented teams at Crafter's Companion UK and US, as well as the Spectrum Noir team, I also am lucky enough to be an Artist-In-Residence for IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko.  I'm thrilled to be joining Yumi and Fumi Handmade for the month of August!

Believe me when I say we are pretty lucky to have her join us. Can you imagine having a job like hers?  Totally dreamy!!  I'm sure when I say I'm jealous, I wouldn't be the only one to voice those thoughts.  These companies are really lucky to have her.  And for the month of August, we are too!! :)
 Love that she uses coloring mediums other than Copics. Looking forward to her projects and maybe if we're lucky she'll give us some pointers on how to work with Spectrum Noir pens.  Just thinking out loud! ;)

I found some cards featuring Summer Yumi, Winter Yumi and Winter Fumi on her blog.
 
Love how she uses paper and other elements to create her cards, the layouts are really cool and her coloring is outstanding!  Be sure to give Taylor the warm welcome she deserves. Visit her blog: The Quiet Moments
 She'll be back tomorrow and every Tuesday in August.
Yay!!
 
Have a wonderful day!!
