Meet our July and August Guest Designer - Areli Johnson

Welcome to the ODBD Blog! We would like to welcome Areli Johnson as our July and August Guest Designer.  Each Wednesday during these two months, we will be sharing a project Areli created using the release products.  Let's meet Areli!

My husband and I live in Michigan. We have been married for 32 years. After raising our three children and only a couple of years of an empty nest, we are living a "life redirected" as we are raising our four grandsons. I love the boys with all my heart. Every day that He chooses me to care for them is truly a blessing. And, on those days that are tougher than others, I rely on the strength of our Lord and hold on to His promise that "We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." ~Romans 8:28 

With that many boys (ages 10, 7, 7, and 6 ... yes, twins!), it's pretty obvious that my house is never lacking of things that make loud noises or covered in dirt. Which is why I take refuge in my crafting, my girly place . I love learning new crafting and art techniques and sharing what I learn with others. And, I absolutely LOVE everything vintage/shabby chic and can't resist the urge to distress paper. It is such a blessing to be able to share my love of crafting and to inspire others to transform paper into little works of art.

Please help us welcome Areli, we look forward to having her join us and sharing her projects with you!
