The Chicks

Lori Turner

Hi there! I am married to my crop sprayer/farmer/trucker hubby, Quint, and reside in central Alberta, CANADA. When I am not helping run our crop spraying and farm businesses, I am a bookkeeper part time, seasonal income tax preparer and full time domestic engineer :) I am a coffee-dependent, color-addicted paper crafter, crocheter and sometimes cross stitcher. I love to walk, hike and run, and enjoy spending time with my friends and family but also enjoy my alone time in my crafty space :) I was a Stampin' Up! Demo for 13+ years or so and then decided to branch out and explore all the wonderful crafty options out there - and boy oh boy - I have found some treasures! I thoroughly LOVE being on design teams and working with with groups to share and get creative with! CHEERS!!

Hello friends I am from North Central Alberta Canada.  I am married to my hubster Brian, I am a Mortgage Specialist Assistant(banker), and I get to work from home, so with crafting it works out wonderfully.  I also love reading, crocheting, and spending time with my friends.  I started scrapbooking with my friend Lori in 2002, and then it turned to into card making and other paper crafts.  I still like scrapbooking, but love making cards.  I started using copic markers a few years ago, and once again love the art of coloring.  I enjoy learning new techniques, and trying different things, and share my joy of paper crafts, meeting new friends and having fun!

I reside in Cary, NC, with my ER RN Hubs, Dave, border collie, Riley and cat, Socrates.  We have two sons, Ben 22, and Patrick, 24, and one daughter-in-law, Helen.  I have a degree in Psychology, was a SAHM while running my own medical transcription business for 10 years, home-schooled my boys for 5 years and now a self-professed crafty bum!  I am passionate about my family, art, photography, crafting, redecorating, all things creative.  I've been painting or crafting for 45+ years.  My biggest obsession is card making (since 2007), though I started with scrapbooking (2000).  I also enjoy reading, swimming, the beach, traveling, watching sports.  Oh did I mention I'm a die hard NE Patriots, and UNC Tarheels fan!

Amy Ottmers

Hi, my name is Amy and I started paper crafting 18 years ago and have been making cards for around 8 years now. My style is more CAS then anything but I love trying new techniques and of course learning all styles. I'm a stay at home mom of three wonderful kids, I have two off at college and one who is in the 9th grade. Besides crafting and my kids, I love everything Disney, love to travel and of course shopping especially if my shopping trip includes buying stamps and paper pads. I'm so excited to be part of the 4 Crafty Chicks Team!!!
