Our latest Pieces & Parts Designer

Meet Katie Turner! I asked her to be my next Pieces & Parts Designer, then mailed her some very random supplies from leftovers I had. Lo and behold she managed to create several projects from those goodies and I made a new friend in the process. Check her out! Thanks for participating Katie!!!

***Note to self***
Never throw anything away when someone else can use it to create works of art

Katie Turner was born in Berlin, Germany in 1987 -- right in the heart of a very artsy district. She's been creating art since she could pick up a marker and currently lives and works in the midwest. She is largely self-taught in areas from web design to scrapbooking and doesn't believe in mistakes.
She's been scrapping the "modern" way since 2006, but has cut and paste various pictures into blank books since she was in elementary school, really getting into the scrapbook craze once she turned 13.
Some of her favorite things include, but are not limited to: Chicago, indie music, food, art of all kinds, the internet, graphic design, her zune & sidekick 3, book & record stores, shows, constantly learning & evolving.
Check out her creative blog at and her web-based portfolio at

Thanks again. I really had fun with this and it's an honor to be included with all the talented artists featured on your blog!

Sooooooooooo, I asked KAtie "What makes YOU a Groovy Chick?"

Here is her response that I can totally relate to, lol!

"What makes me a groovy chick? I'm totally free-spirited and would be a hippie if I weren't so addicted to the Internet, of course. ;)"
