Meet Debbie Olson

We just love our Guest Designers and are so excited that Debbie is with us this month! I'm sure you've seen her amazing work and blog, Thining Inking, but if you haven't, you are in for a treat! Read all about Debbie and make sure to say hello for a chance to win "Debbie's Favorite Things" that she hand-picked from our store for one lucky reader. See below her Bio for details.

Meet Debbie:

I'm Debbie Olson, and I'm thrilled to be a guest designer for Emma's Paperie this month. I first found Emma's Paperie through Melissa Phillips' gorgeous blog, and I immediately started shopping. Melissa's quite the enabler, I'm sure you know!

I am a SAHM to Benjamin, our third grade boy whom I home-school, and wife of Rick, my kind husband who humors my papercrafting compulsion and other artsy pursuits. We live in the woods of the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where the deer and other assorted creatures may just outnumber the people.

In my spare time, I generally play with paper, stamps, and ink. In addition to guest-designing for Emma's Paperie this month, I currently design for these manufacturers: Copic, Cosmo Cricket, JustRite Stampers, Lockhart Stamp Company, PaperTrey Ink and Spellbinders Paper Arts. I also blog extensively and submit to several papercrafting magazines when I have time.

Thank you, Cindy, for having me as a guest this month!


Debbie's Favorite Things Giveaway:

Winner will be picked with a random number generator and announced here on May 16th. Leave a comment on this thread for a chance to win.
