FEATURE FRIDAY: Hi There Bear

Hello all! It's Feature Friday again! Today is special because we get to introduce 3 new guest designers! Lynnea Hollendonner, Tracie Pond and Lea Lawson will be with us all month long sharing projects they've made using our new November 2017 release! The first projects they are sharing with us are using the Hi There Bear Bundle!

First up is Lynnea Hollendonner @sparkliie:

Here is a little more about Lynnea in her own words:
"Hello! I'm Lynnea and I am so excited to be designing for Concord & 9th this month! You should have heard me squeal when Angie asked me if I would guest design! Concord & 9th has been one of my favorite companies ever since I got my hands on their "Sophisticated Script" stamp set a while back! I am a wife and I'm a mom to a beautiful two-year-old boy named Jaxon. He is everything to me. My husband and I met him when he was two weeks old and after a year and a half long battle he became our forever son on July 31st. I life a plain life, but I am blessed beyond measure! I started crafting when I was 13 years old. My parents went through a messy divorce and pretty paper things helped me cope! I went to college and got my degree in Forensic Biology and married an amazing man. I branched my crafting into stamping after graduating college and I've never turned back! My style is very clean and simple - it has to be! I work a full time job and I take care of my son! I love watercoloring, inking techniques, sequins, and stamping to make my own backgrounds!"

Next up is Tracie Pond @tracieponddesigns:

Here is a little more about Tracie in her own words:

Hello Everyone! I am beyond grateful to be guest designing for Concord & 9th. I have been a supporter since the release of the tree ring. I admire Concord & 9th for their kindness, generosity and unique designs.

I am a happily married (almost 19 years) 43-year-old. Home is beautiful West Michigan. Our kids are our two senior labradoodles. My professional background is computer systems technology and accounting. I left my corporate accounting career 11 years ago. I have been dabbling in cardmaking here and there ever since. The last few years I have been getting more involved and it has become a true passion of mine. My style leans towards clean and simple. Sending handmade smiles is a true joy and I am truly blessed my Husband is so supportive. I was big into cross-stitch growing up and also sewed some. I would like to get back into quilting. Growing up we were always working on a handmade craft. Other interests: flower gardening, nature walks and expanding my knowledge and practice of clean eating and preservation.

Thank you, Concord & 9th!

 

And, last but not least is Lea Lawson @lealawsoncreates:

It’s always a pleasure to know a little bit more about your designers.

Un-bear-lievably awesome showcases of this sweet set! Pandas, brown bears, black bears: sheer delights! Although I’m terrified of bears (they roam into our vicinity, at times, as do cougars; GAH!), I have a soft spot for them all the same. At present, an injured bear is subject of concern and discussion here; everyone is hoping that the Wildlife people will find a way to protect him over the winter as, due to his injures (which they can’t/won’t address), he likely hasn’t fueled up for hibernation. Poor guy..I want to bring him home but…maybe not such a good idea! I can, however, bring YOUR bears home! And I will!
