Hello!  I’m Jess and I am honored and thrilled to lead the Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge blog!  So, a little about me…I live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with my incredibly supportive husband, two shelties, a tortoiseshell cat, and a senior bunny.  I am a professional musician by day and a papercrafter by night (or really early morning)!  I enjoy creating cards for my friends and family and I can often be found coloring a couple images or embossing a sentiment in-between lessons and gigs!  I love experimenting with new techniques and mediums and I usually can’t resist adding a little extra sparkle to all of my cards and projects!!  I really love the encouraging and supportive papercrafting community and am thankful to Greg and Angie for allowing me to share my love of Concord & 9th with you!

Hi! I'm Emily Midgett. I live in rural Illinois with my husband, twin toddlers, two cats, and one very large dog. I have always been artistic, dabbling in various mediums from childhood and beyond: music (I have a master's in voice performance, but my diploma languishes in storage), watercoloring, drawing, jewelry-making, even cake decorating! After our wedding, I was desperate to find thank you notes that were "just right," and from then on my obsession with cardmaking began to flourish, much to my husband's simultaneous delight and dismay! I used to make cards to keep myself busy while my husband was at work, but now my craft room is my daily escape during naptime. Some people do yoga... I watercolor and make cards. It relaxes me and, I hope, makes me a better wife and mommy. Not to mention the network of friends that I have gained through this wonderful hobby is one of the best, and most unexpected, bonuses. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with Concord and 9th, as I have been a longtime fangirl of their products. Thank you for having me!


My name is Justin Krieger and I’m techie that does computer consulting. I live in Long Island, NY and I have a wonderful daughter Taylor and Mini Schnauzer Winston. I have always done some kind of paper crafting ever since I was little when I made entire car dashboards out of oaktag. I discovered my love of card making in January of 2010 while watching a show on PBS. I saw them make a waterfall card and I thought I can do that so I went out and got some supplies and made one. My friend introduced me to Stampin’ Up! in August of that year and I became an Independent Demonstrator in September. Since then my love of crafting has grown to many other companies. I'm now the proud owner of the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! I’m completely addicted to crafting and take some time to make something every day. It relaxes me and is my wind down at the end of the day!


I'm a graphic designer by trade and mama of two boys who spends weekdays at work and late evenings crafting. I'm drawn to the clean and simple style, yet like to dabble in shabby chic, elegant and fun and cute too! I love working with innovative products and sharing my projects on my blog and social media sites. I really enjoy card making and home decor projects...anything that will stretch my boundaries, challenge me and make be a better designer is what I strive for.

Kymona is a women who never slows down and loves it.  Yes... she is the energizer bunny's sister.  She keeps going and going.  She is a single mom of two wonderful children, 19 and 11 years of age.  Besides running from one activity to another with them, she works full time at a hospital, teaches high school students on the weekends and has a huge love of learning new things.  Kymona started scrapbooking when her son was born and has been paper-crafting ever since.  Kymona also has a love for card making, photography, knitting and mixed media. Besides being a mom, Kymona thinks crafting has been one of the most rewarding accomplishments. According to her, being able to share with the world community makes life so rewarding!  Being on the WCMC9 team, Kymona gets to do just that.  She get to share her love of card making and her love for Concord & 9th at the same time.

Hi! I'm Lindsey...wife, mother to two darling kiddos, and late-night crafter.  Cardmaking is one of my favorite ways to share my heart with others...to encourage, to console, to thank.  Creating brings me a lot of happiness, too, and I love that I can share that happiness in a tangible way.  I'm a huge fan of Concord and 9th (but you already knew that, right?!) and love being on the Where Creativity Meets C9 team.

Hi there. I’m Lisa. I am a paper crafter, and animal lover who also loves to crochet, cook, and read. I live in Las Vegas with my husband. You’ll find that I have a fondness for kraft paper, watercolor, heat embossing and clean and simple cards. I am so lucky to be on the Where Creativity Meets C9 design team where I get to work with the wonderful and innovative products from Concord & 9th. I love working with their new designs every month.

"Hello! I'm Melissa and I'm so excited and honored to be a part of Concord & 9th's 2nd birthday celebration. A little about me ... I live in the beautiful state of Maine with my husband and our two children. I was introduced to stamping and card making by a friend over 10 years ago and fell in love immediately. I love that I can be creative on this small scale and in turn make someone happy by sending them a card that I have created. I also find it to be my little escape from all the stresses of life and my time to recharge. I’m a big fan of clean and simple designs, uplifting + positive messages and lots of happy colors. I look forward to creating and sharing more of my Concord & 9th projects with you as part of the Where Creativity Meets C9 team!"
