We are so excited to Introduce our newest member of My Besties International, Clairebears!

Please help me welcome the super talented, Clairebears to our team!  

Here is some of her awesome work:

My name is Claire, but you may know me as Clairebears, I am lucky enough to work part time which leaves me lots of time to craft.  The earliest memory I have of crafting was making paper clothes for my poor Sindy Doll.

I started trying to make cards about 20 years ago with cross stitch but I found that it took too long, so papercrafting took over, and I can't remember the last time I brought a card!

My favourite part of crafting is now colouring and I can loose hours still colouring a image up. My first ever memory of colouring was as a child was when I sat colouring in a fish in my colouring book, I couldn't colour it normally though - it ended up stripey! 

I have been so lucky to ask to join the Besties International Team and I really can't wait to colour them and then share them with you and hopefully you will fall in love with them as much as I have.

Please Meet My Besties Designer, Andrea Nordhaus featuring Sherri Baldy's New SVG files

We have invited a My Besties Designer, Andrea Nordhaus, from Germany to visit us and share a bit about herself and her creations!

First let's see some of her wonderful creations using the latest released images:

Here is her message to us in English and German!

My name is Andrea and I am on the "My Besties Friendship" Design team, "My Besties 3D and more" and My Besties DT on Facebook. I'm a big fan of the wonderful My Besties motives and it gives me a lot of fun to color them and to put it on my projects in scene.
 
Now a little about myself.
I live in North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany. I am happily married and have no children. But  I am educator by profession. I work in a daycare center. There, I am responsible for 25 children.  My job gives me a lot of fun. Although it's sometimes very loud and wild is.
 
To relax and to compensate, I'm very happy to work creatively in my spare time.

I experiment a lot and i also like it, totally foreign stamp techniques to try out,.

It gives me a lot of fun to put the stamp motifs in scene or introduce them as a design point of a packaging or other things.
 
Also I like challenge. I enjoy to work after a sketch. It's fun, the different materials, as designer paper, cardstock, Flowers, ribbon, lace, stamp motive, etc. to put together, and then a card create with these materials.
Other hobbies are different crafts techniques such as knitting the socks, crochet flower and snow crystals, Hardanger, cross stitch and occhi.

Likewise, I love everything about motorcycling. Together with my husband and friends, we love it, to make a motorcycle tour.

I hope you can make a picture of me and my person.. I consider myself very lucky that I can be active as a guest designer here. Of course, I have for you, even a work of inspiration myself ....
 
And here you can find my Blog: http://bastelwelt-andrea.blogspot.de/
 
 
Mein Name ist Andrea und ich bin im "My Besties Friendship" Design-Team, My besties "3D and more und im My Besties DT on Facebokk.

Ich bin ein großer Fan von den wunderschönen My Besties Motive und es macht mir viel Spaß, sie zu colorieren und sie auf meine Projekte in Szene zusetzen.

Nun ein wenig über mich.

Ich lebe in NRW in Deutschland. Ich bin glücklich verheiratet und habe keine Kinder. Aber von Beruf bin ich schon seit 30 Jahren Erzieherin und arbeite in einer Kita als Gruppenleitung und stellvertretene Leitung.

Zur Entspannung und als Ausgleich, bin ich sehr gerne in meiner Freizeit kreativ tätig.

Ich experimentiere sehr gerne und versuche mich an den unterschiedlichsten Techniken im Bereich des Bastelns und Stempelns. Es macht mir sehr viel Spaß, die Stempelmotive in Szene zu setzen oder sie als Gestaltungspunkt auf Verpackungen und anderen Dingen, mit einzubringen.

Auch liebe ich Herausforderungen, so setze ich mich sehr gerne mit den verschiedenen Techniken und Materialien auseinander und ich bleibe dann solange dabei, bis ich ein Ergebnis erzielt habe.

Gerne beschäftige ich mich aber auch mit verschiedenen Handarbeistechniken, wie das Socken stricken, Flower und Schneekristalle häkeln, Hardanger, Occhi, Kreuzstich und natürlich das Nähen.

Aber auch Motorradfahren liebe ich über alles. Gemeinsam mit meinem Mann und Freunden unternehmen wir sehr gerne Motorradtouren.


Ich hoffe, ihr könnt euch nun ein Bild von mir und meiner Person machen ..

Ich schätze mich sehr glücklich, dass ich heute hier als Gast tätig sein darf. Natürlich habe ich auch einige Werk zur Inspiration für euch.

Meinen Blog könnt ihr hier finden: http://bastelwelt-andrea.blogspot.de/

Hugs, Andrea!
