Meet Design Team Member Diane Long!
Deflecto USA Ambassador Design Team member, 2014 - 2015
A lifelong crafter, my satisfaction comes when solving daily problems in a creative way, finding time for creative expression and seeing where it will lead to. My passions include rubber stamping, paper crafts, collage, home decor, clay, writing, DIY projects, baking, handmade gifts- anything homemade. I hope that I can inspire, teach and share the creative journey that we are on and I would love for you to share some of your creative destinations with me! As the youngest of seven, we learned how to be creative with what we had. We stitched it, painted it, covered it or re-purposed it. Married to a man from a family of eleven, we continue this DIY lifestyle today. With our two children, we strive to live a peaceful, simple life, making the most of the resources around us. It’s not always easy with the fast paced world we live in. Although I enjoy many crafts, stamping is my passion. This led me to work in a local stamp retail store for 6 years, and have projects published in Vamp Stamp News, Rubber Stamp Madness as well as other publications. Thanks for sharing a moment of your time to get to know me. I’d love for you to connect with me on social media, or send me an email at diane@creativedestinationsguide dot com
