While your here I wanted to introduce our newest DoodleCrew member. Introducing Jan. Here is a little abut Jan below. Be sure and leave her some love.
Hi, my name is Jan Garber, and I am absolutely thrilled to be joining this crazy zoo they call Doodle Dragon Studios!
I am a married and early-retired stay-at-home housewife living in Buckeye, Arizona. That's a small suburb outside of Phoenix. With the temperatures hovering well over 100 much of the year, I am very happy spending my days creating cards and layouts.
I have one young grandson who inspires me with most of my "kid’s"projects, and a wonderfully supportive husband who encourages me and finances all of my little whims. I taught kindergarten and Special Education for many years, and get much of my "creativeness" from those many days spent playing with scissors, paint, and crayons! I’ve been locked away and playing in my room now for about 7 years, only coming out to eat, sleep, and buy more scrapbooking supplies! I am always trying new techniques and products, and expanding my style. My coloring has improved immensely from my early days due to a very patient and DEMANDING Copics instructor. I believe some of you may know her as the “slave driver”, Jennifer Dove! Haha!
I feel comfortable creating romantic, vintage projects as well as fun, spunky ones. I have long admired the art by Dustin Pike, and am already imagining all sorts of shenanigans for these characters to get into! I have a somewhat "edgy", but not terribly crass, sense of humor, so watch out!
Here are a few situations from the past where Dustin’s images have played a role in my unexplainable and insane behavior!
