Antoinette - Our New Design Team Member from the United States... State of Texas

Good Morning and welcome to Besties UK ... today we have a visitor from the United Sates of America we are so lucky to host the beautiful creations of the Besties Design team members ... please give a very warm welcome to Antionette ....





Hello Everyone,

I am Antoinette Tristan born and raised in the United States in the State of Texas.


I have known I love arts and crafts since I was a little girl. I found myself creating with paper Mache making brooches and even selling them to friends when I was a young teen to gather money to buy my Junior High Band shirt with my long name on it.

I was also blessed to have my Grandmother teach me how to embroider which I still love to do and hope to teach my 15 year old Grand Daughter. I went through a period of painting ceramics and even had requests from people who paid me to paint special items. I even got into making hook loop rugs to frame and hang on walls. I even made a hook loop Christmas stocking for my one only Son which I still stuff with goodies and he is now 37 years old.

And since I am talking about children…I cannot leave out I make my Furbaby a mini-piebald dachshund, Ms. Pepper her blinged out collar necklaces. I must say growing up and into adulthood I mostly loved to color in coloring books...who would have ever thought I would be coloring Stamps and Digital images as an older adult.

I guess I was getting practice. I had seen stamps at the craft store but they never really caught my attention until I was introduced to the cyber world of Facebook and Blog Land. I started blog hopping and meeting all kinds of amazing crafters from all over the World showcasing all there fabulous talents and creativity.

So I worked hard on creating my own Blog in 2012 and joined the Crafting world. I love my new journey making new friends from all around the world. It is amazingly fun…learning and sharing never-ending tips, techniques and new ideas. I want to “Thank you” for letting me share my fun of creating with My Besties by the talented Artist Sherri Baldy. I hope I inspired you.

Antoinette
