Meet ReNae!

We would love to introduce our newest design team member ReNae!

Please take a moment to read her bio, and stay tuned later today we will post her first tutorial on her experience with a FotoBella Bundle!

My name is ReNae Allen and I love to create!  I have loved art, crafts, sewing and making jewelry for as long as I can remember, and that's a long time!  I am an empty-nester, a new Grandma, and one more thing.  I have a disability. 
I have never let it get in the way of what I want to accomplish, but after my last surgery,(my 32nd) I finally had to stop working.  

Never one to sit still very long, I decided that this was a good time to concentrate on my creative side!  I discovered paper crafting was something I thoroughly enjoyed, and I began making cards.  Pretty soon people were asking me to show them how I made my cards, which combined my sewing, jewelry, and other art experience.  I make my cards with lots of layers and texture.  And I LOVE color!   My design aesthetic is vintage/shabby chic, so I love using old lace, buttons and other ephemera in my designs.

I have been teaching part time at a local store, and have been a part time blogger as well.  But nothing could have prepared me for the exciting role I was about to play, that of Design Team member for!  I hope you all will enjoy this new journey with me.  I know I have a lot to learn, but I am looking forward to sharing with you my design process and how I go about creating fun and pretty one-of-a-kind projects!

Happy Creating!
