Meet our Guest Designer Jan Tinklenberg

Welcome to the ODBD Blog!  We would like to welcome Jan Tinklenberg as our Guest Designer. Jan will be joining our talented Design Team for our May and June Releases.  

Jan Tinklenberg is a happily married mother of three
children who has been playing with paper as long as she can remember. Jan knew from an early age that she wanted to be an artist and discovered a passion for paper sculpture in high school. She started college, only to find that paper arts were not considered "serious art" so she changed her emphasis to watercolor instead. After having her first child, Jan discovered stamping when she was going to MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), and it was then that a true obsession was born. She has been a member of a number of design teams and has been published in booth papercraft magazines and books.  Besides papercrafts, Jan loves to knit, plays the organ at the Episcopal church she attends, and is a medical transcriptionist.

Please help us welcome Jan as our Guest Designer and be sure to stop back later today for our May 2016 New Release and Blog Hop!
