We here at IIG are very excited to bring a few more new chicks to our team! First, please help me welcome Kelly!
My name is Kelly and I live in Texas with my hubby of 14 years who is very supportive of my crafting habit. We have 2 boys ages 13 and 12 as well as a 2 year old puppy who is our baby. After my boys were born, I stayed at home and started a small home daycare. I’ve always had a love for art and paper since I was young, doodling on all my notebooks and cross stitching. I started collecting memorabilia back in high school to put in a scrapbook my Mom had created by painting on the pages. I enjoy mixing different paper lines, painting, distressing along with creating in clean lines. I am a big fan of using sketches for inspiration and enjoy learning new techniques. I also love making cards and occasionally altering items when time allows. Other hobbies I enjoy are reading, gardening, fishing, watching my boys play sports, and quilting.

We also have Brenda!
Hello ! My name is Brenda Ragsdale and I am thrilled to be joining the If It's Groovy design team.
am a native of California currently residing in Oregon. I am mother to
two awesome adult sons and GrandDiva to two beautiful granddaughters and
two handsome grandsons.
I prefer creating layouts, and
will occasionally create a card or altered item. I would say that my
style is more on the clean and simple side. I created my first scrapbook
album in 2006 and then quit for a few years and did not seriously start
scrapping again until the beginning of 2010. I am so glad that I became
addicted to scrapbooking as it is the perfect way to record my family’s
history and tell each family members personal story. I like scrapping
the good, bad and the ugly stories and details as it is all a part of
our daily existence.
I am looking forward to working with the team and members of IIG and seeing all of your beautiful creations.

Next up is Wendy!
I have been a happy scrapper for 15 years now. It helps that I
have 3 willing subjects, my kids! I have 2 girls (Brittany - 22 and
Jessica -10) and my little guy (Jason -5). With this age range, I can
pretty much scrap just about every subject out there. Which makes me a
happy shopper,…I mean, scrapper. :) My style is pretty simple and
clean, but I'm willing to try any technique at least once. Nothing
wrong with trying new things!
I'm so excited to be a part of this team! Thanks for the chance and the challenges!
