Her use of fabric and other materials, not to mention her amazing style and how much fun her projects are have made her blog a favorite for me - and I'm very excited to announce that Andrea Ockey Parr will be joining the Stamp & Show team this month! Here's Andrea to tell you a bit more about herself.
My name is Andrea Ockey Parr and I'm a total lit nerd, crafter and eternal librarian who gets giddy about both Shakespeare and yarn.
My artsy style is whimsical with some stringy and straggly mixed in. Though I failed to make an A-worthy 80’s floral vest in my junior high sewing class (patterns still give me hives), I do love to incorporate fabric and stitching into my projects.
Some of my creations have been featured in Cloth Paper Scissors, Stuffed, Somerset Studio, SEW Somerset and The Stampers’ Sampler.
I’m grateful to have the best family support system in the universe and a patient husband who doesn’t think I’m weird for staring at a jar of buttons for half an hour.
Please join me in welcoming Andrea to the team! For more of her work, you can check out her blog here. Also don't forget this week's challenge is "Anything goes" and you have a few more days to enter. Happy crafting!
