We are coming to you early this week to reveal
the brand new designers who will be joining our

a little more personally before they start on their
journey with us August 2nd.

So let's get started .....

Our next creative gal comes from
Pittsburgh PA....
home of Heinz ketchup & now
a Cafe designer!

Please welcome...

"Hi there! My name is Anya Schrier, and I am over-the-moon excited to be joining The Play Date CafĂ© Design Team!  I live in Pittsburgh, PA, home of Heinz Ketchup and Penguins hockey.  I work full time for a natural gas utility company where I am responsible for environmental compliance and permitting.  I am married to my high school sweetheart and mom to two doggies.  When I am not papercrafting, I like to bake, bird watch, walk, and scuba dive.  I am proud to be a part of several Design Teams and I love to share my crafty ventures on my blog, Life Is What You Make It. (www.aschoss.blogspot.com)
It is a dream come true to be a part of one of my favorite challenge blogs!"

Our next designer now lives in
South Dakota by way of 
Can anyone say...
"Where in the world is..."

"Hi! My name is Jocelyn Olson. My husband, two kids and I live in South Dakota. I grew up in the Phoenix suburbs, but since high school, I’ve lived in Michigan, Texas, South Dakota, West Virginia (by Pittsburgh), Kentucky, northern Pennsylvania, and now back in South Dakota where my husband is from. After two years, I’m still trying to get used to the cold.

I was always a crafty kid, but I jumped into the scrapbooking world right before my daughter was born—I thought it would be a good idea to make 100+ handmade birth announcements with a newborn. A couple of years later, I discovered the stamping world, and lately, I’ve been using more and more digital stamps and elements. Primarily, I’m a card maker, but I love to try just about any kind of papercrafting projects. I’ve been so fortunate enough to have been published in Paper Crafts Magazine and work on some terrific design teams. I am thrilled to be joining the PDCC DT!"

We are so excited to have both of these talented ladies join one
of the best design teams in the color challenge world!

Don't forget, Wednesday we reveal our final designers!

Until then, please make sure you 
visit their blogs and
leave them some love...

they totally deserve it!
