Pinspired Challenges: Turning Pins Into Projects

We are slowly introducing you to our DT, or as we like to call them, "Pin Heads" here on the blog. We are all getting ready for our very first challenge on January 8, 2013. Please welcome me in announcing our third Design Team member, Chrissie Tobas.

Hi! I'm Chrissie and I live in the Chicagoland area with my wonderful husband, son, daughter and crazy dog. I work full-time as Graphic Designer/Pre-Press Operator at a small print company. I have been involved in some aspect of art my entire life. From oil paints and watercolors as a child, to paper crafting and digital art as an adult, rarely a day has gone by in my world that doesn't include art. I am an Alumnus of the Illinois Institute of Art, where I graduated with Honors and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Communications. I started papercrafting around 1997, but I ended up just hoarding supplies and not completing any projects. A few years ago, my love of papercrafting was rekindled when I was invited to scrapbook at a friend’s house. I have been obsessed ever since!!!

You will not want to miss out on any of our challenges. We have some amazing pins to inspire your crafty projects. We all have been working very hard behind the scenes and have the entire year of challenges ready to go!!! We are also very thrilled and grateful to have awesome, and I mean AWESOME, sponsors offering up prizes for every SINGLE challenge. Some big names are coming, so don’t wait!

Follow Pinspired Challenges on our BLOG, FACEBOOK, FLICKR, TWITTER and PINTEREST.

And mark your calendars for January 8th for our very first challenge. Our challenges will be held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month!!! :) We can't wait to be pinspired by you all! :)
