New Design Team Member Introduction – Keri Sallee

Good morning, everyone!  I have great news to share today!  ButterBeeScraps is welcoming a new member to our design team 🙂  For those of you that follow the Graphic 45 blog, I’m sure you will recognize the name because she was one of their designers last year…welcome to the team Keri Sallee!!!  Here’s a quick bio that Keri put together for us:

Keri Sallee ButterBeeScraps DT MemberI have always been a lover of all things creative, from writing to art to cooking to music. Before shifting my focus to paper crafting and mixed media, I trained in music ministry and studied as a classically trained soprano. I love pushing myself and trying to think outside the box, particularly in trying to make art fun, but still affordable.

For the past 10 years I have lived in Northwest Arkansas with my husband of 13 years, Kendall, and my 3 crazy kiddos: KJ (age 12), Kylee (age 8) and Khloe (5.) {Do you see the pattern? Yes…we all start with a “K”! LOL}

I currently design for The Crafter’s Workshop. I have also designed for Faber Castell Design Memory Craft, Graphic 45, Marion Smith Designs, Authentique Paper, Susan K Weckesser, Canvas Corp, 7Gyspies, Tattered Angels and Want2Scrap.

If you ask me what my motto is in life, I would tell you I have two:

  1. Picasso once said “Inspiration does exist, but it must find you working.” Even if I am feeling “uninspired”, I always make the choice to go into my studio and just play. Sometimes it works out…sometimes it doesn’t, but I would never know either way, unless I get my hands dirty.
  2. Genesis 1:1 starts out “In the beginning GOD CREATED….” This verse is actually my newest tattoo on my right wrist. It is my constant reminder that I can only do what I do, because God FIRST created me and my gentle nudge to leave my pride at the door.
