Please Help Me Welcome...

My new Creative Design Team Member! She has shared a lot of work in the Paperthreads Gallery and I'm so very happy that she answered my call when I was looking for a special person to join me in and with my obsession!

I'm really looking forward to working with her and seeing my files through her eyes and artistic interpretation :)

I asked her if she would write up a short bio so that everyone could get to know her a little more and she was gracious enough to do send it to me. So without any further ado, while you might know her as "GAMES", may I present, in her own words, GINGER!

"Hi Everyone!

My name is Ginger Sergent “Games” on the forums. I’m 39 years old and have been married for almost 3 years to a wonderful man “Bob”. We both grew up in here Ohio. We live in the county on 5 acres partially wooded. We don’t have any children but we do live with a Jack Russell Terrier, 2 house cats, 2 Quarter Horses, and 25 or so barn cats.

In 1993, I had a bad car accident that left me a disabled paraplegic. I’m very lucky to be here and I believe god had more for me to do. I am able to do things in a chair and I can walk short distances with forearm crutches. Because of this I no longer work outside of the house. Throughout my life I have been an employee for Kentucky Fried Chicken, Tractor Supply Co., a secretary/bookkeeper for a farm implement co., IT for them and my local fire department, as well as my family members and friends. I also, am a part-time Mary Kay Consultant.

I started doing crafty things as a little girl when my grandma taught me how to crochet. Making snowflakes, scarf’s and then blankets. I did this in the evenings and off season from showing horses. Then photography and scrapbooking became a big part of my life.
I’ve made many types albums.

Then on a sleepless night, I saw a commercial ad for the Cricut. Like many I thought it was the only cutter out there. Boy was I wrong! After looking online I soon found many other cutters. Then I found Paper Threads and purchased a KNK Element. What a wonderful place and Michelle is the best, along with the designers and forum members.

This is where I met Tina (Forever Memories for You) and Eddita (Accents by Eddita), both awesome ladies and designers. I have accepted their design team challenges. Well I’m the lucky one. I love it! I just hope I can make them proud. Thanks Ladies! Well that’s about it, back to cutting and life.

Enjoy your cutters!
