Instructor Spotlight: Debbie Corbari

First, I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Daisy and Joy at Eclectic Paperie for including us in their newsletter as the eP Friend this week! Throughout all of my personal and "professional" contacts with these two amazing ladies they have been nothing short of fabulous! Both are incredibly wonderful to work with and generous with their time and resources. We are so thankful for their generous support and hope that you will help us out and return the favor by supporting Eclectic Paperie!

Now, on to the spotlight! I'm thrilled to share our next teacher with you, Debbie Corbari - and she's perfect for this post since her class will be sponsored by Eclectic Paperie and she will be using stamps from Our Craft Lounge's exclusive line of stamps - that she drew! Yup, Debbie is one of the talented illustrators for Our Craft Lounge!! Here's a bit about Debbie straight from her:

"I grew up with an artistic mom (specializing in pen and ink drawings) and was surrounded by arts and crafts at a young age. Although it’s nothing I ever studied, it’s always been a major part of my life. In college I illustrated a children’s book for a fellow student. I have no idea what ever happened with the book. I think she paid me $20 for my illustrations, which feels like $100 to a freshman in college so, I was happy! LOL!

When I was first introduced to stamping, about 9 years ago, I was hesitant to buy stamps because I felt I could draw the images instead. Some time had passed before the instant gratification of stamping won me over and shortly after that, as with most stampers, it became an addiction! Since I started designing my own stamp sets my “crafty” time to stamp has taken a bit of a hit. But I still need to get my “fix” every few days and get inky! LOL!"

Debbie is a newly Copic Certified Instructor and will be sharing some great Copic tips with us during her class! I can't wait to meet her - she lives in the Albany area of upstate NY which is my hometown!! Small world isn't it?!

So how about it folks . . . ready to sign-up for Stamping Around Connecticut? We are so excited about our wonderful teachers and fabulous location and cannot wait to meet you!! Remember the deadline for registration is coming right up - June 23 - we'd hate for you to miss out!! :)
