Hi creative friends,
Welcome back to our Craft Room Crafter of the Month!
This series is our monthly rendezvous with the creative minds that make our crafting community feel like home.
It’s the chance to draw inspiration from their artistry, take a peek behind the curtain of their creativity, and connect with the incredible members who bring life to our virtual crafting haven.
Crafter of the Month
Every month, we’ll sit down with a standout member from the Craft Room to chat about all things crafty, from what they like to make to what inspires them.
As October unfolds its vibrant hues, I’m excited to introduce you to our latest standout artist… Donna Raabe, our October Crafter of the Month.
Name: Donna Raabe
Where do you live?
Phoenix, Arizona USA
How would you describe your craft style?
My craft style is predominantly shabby chic, romantic including roses, lace, pearls, pink and other pastels.
What type of projects do you like to make?
I like making banners for my inherited pie safe, journals and folios, 3D flowers, and my new fav… stacked envelope projects.
What inspires your creativity?
My inspiration for creativity comes from the digitals, watching YouTube videos, seeing what people post on various Facebook groups I belong to, and occasionally Pinterest posts.
What are your ‘can’t live without’ craft essentials?
I always have my combo paper trimmer and score board, sharp scissors, corner punch, printer with ink plan, and my ever present mat to cover my workspace.
I also love to have laces, ribbons and embellishments to use on projects.
Donna’s passion for crafting extends beyond the finished product.
She’s an active member of our community, always eager to lend a helping hand, offer tips, and share her knowledge with others.
Her warm, welcoming nature is one of the reasons our community feels like home to so many.
Thank you, Donna, for being a part of our crafty family and for letting us into your creative world.
You are truly an inspiration to us all, and we can’t wait to see where your creativity takes you next.
I look forward to shining the spotlight on another of our fabulous Craft Room members next month.
