I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome Robyn Josephs as new mistress of the Tuesday Created byhand Challenge!  Many thanks to all those who wrote in!  Robyn has been a Quietfire Design follower for years and we’re very pleased she is taking on this new challenge in the “family”! 

Robyn is a multi media artist and spiritual nurturer with a current focus on fibers and paper and book arts. Growing up in a tribe of crafty women, Robyn was knitting and paper “de-crafting” before she could read. Using color, structure and texture Robyn enjoys helping others to discover their inner fiber nature. Robyn facilitates workshops and retreats on arts and spirituality and has been a resident artist at Pendle Hill and Open Connections. Her work is in many private collections. Robyn lives in Montreat, North Carolina and is thrilled to be a member of the Quietfire community.

A NOTE FROM SUZANNE:

I am looking for a kind soul who loves Challenges to take over the weekly Created byhand Challenge!

The Quietfire Design Team will be happy to work with the “Challenge Boss” help create weekly themes if needed at the start and probably even be able to supply some artwork on occasion.  We love the Challenge!  We just need to free up the Design Team a bit more.

Requirements:  you have a blog, some computer skills (hey, if you’ve got a blog, you’ve got enough skills!), like to create art and some time.

Send me an email if you’re keen!  Thanks! Suzanne
