Meet November Guest Design Team Member Irit
Hi!! I am IRIT and I am from sunny ISRAEL. In my "real life" I have been a dentist, but for the last 3 years I do it as a part time job, because I need some extra time to run my Israeli online scrap shop and I am havimg a lot of fun doing something else after 25 years of dentistry. I have been married for 28 years to a retired high police officer, he is the full time family cook these days. I am a mom to 4 grown ups: 2 sons and twin daughters. The empty nest is probably the main reason for my obsession for crafting - finally I have some time for myself. My oldest son is a high army officer and recently married. The second one is " a world traveler" - for the last 4 years after his army service. He is out of Israel for at least 9 months a year. This year he lives in Spain and works there. My twins are in their second year of college and my scrapbooking inspiration. I need to say that I have been totally addicted to crafting since I was a little girl. For many years it was polymer clay and jewelry making, but after I saw a scrapbook LO for the first time in my life (only 5 years ago during my visit to USA) I understood finally that I am in love with paper. Today I mostly scrap and do altered art and some card making. I am a real challenge blog freak. I have been a guest design team member on about 7-8 challenge blogs. I also design for UK chipboard company named Tando creative, for an Australian shop named Scrap with V and I am also on SNR WEB MAGAZINE editorial staff. I was published in print in Israel several times and was published in every possible web magazine during the last year. Finally my other addiction is..... folk dancing. So if I am not in my crafting room- I am probably dancing If you want to see a bit of my work you can visit my blog
