Welcome December Guests

We’re a day early, but that’s because we’ve got a little something special planned for you tomorrow! Make sure you stop by the blog for a fun series the Design Team will be featuring in the first half of December.

This December is a special one as we have two special guests joining us again this month to wrap up our final release for 2015! Please help me in welcoming these ladies to the YNS family for the month:


Michelle Oatman
Blog: Stamps, Paper, Scissors and Donkey Smiles

Howdy from South Texas! My name is Michelle Oatman; many know me as “MichelleO” or the Donkey Smiles lady. I have been very happily married for over 25 years to my best friend who is supportive of my obsession of crafting. We live in the country where we raise Miniature Donkeys, Dwarf Nigerian Goats and Toy Australian Shepherds. They are all my children, and are all spoiled rotten.

My crafting goes back to my childhood, days spent with my Grandma and then as I grew up watching my Dad, a professional graphic artist. I dreamt of the day I could own my own grown-up markers. That may be why I adore my Copics so much. 

Summer of 2010 I lost my right eye to an accident. It has taught me a lot about myself, and the people around me. The support from everyone, both close to me and across blogging land, has made me a stronger person. And while learning to deal with my new vision I have learned to appreciate my crafting even more. I am blessed in so many ways – my husband, my family and friends. The life I live on the farm with so many animals. And to have found a hobby that give me so much happiness.

Vika (Salmina Viktoriya)
Blog: Click HERE (translate)

Hi! My name is Vika and I’m a crafter from the Ukraine. I have 3 cats and a lot of stamps, inks and cardstock! I love coloring my stamps using markers or watercolor. I also love working with paper. During the day, I also get to be creative as a wedding decorator.

Nice to meet you and I look forward to making cards using YNS products this month!
