Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started creating cards:
My name is Savannah O’Gwynn. I’m married to my best friend, Travis, and a fur mommy to two amazing pups, Olsen and Olly. I love to sing and lead worship with my husband at church (he plays the guitar and sings as well). We enjoy riding our bikes around the neighborhood and playing card or board games. Travis has been known to help me design and create my projects—he has a really good eye for designs! I started making cards professionally a few years after I left my 4th-grade teaching position. I saw cards in magazines that made me think, “I could do that, too!”, and so I started trying new techniques and crafting projects on a daily basis. I would say my love for paper crafting came to be at a young age and has flourished the past couple of years. My style varies for each project. I love to use lots of patterned paper, embellishments and layers (complex), but I also love to use a soft watercolored background and an embossed sentiment (simple). My goal in crafting is to share my creativity and send out projects to brighten someone’s day, and I think my cards do just that. 🙂
Here are a few of Savannah’s favorite cards she’s created:
My favorite junk food is raw cake powder right out of the box.
If I could take a vacation anywhere, I would head back to Israel and stay longer.
The one word that best describes me is original.
If I could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive), it would be Jesus or Queen Esther.
My favorite movie/television show is Chopped.
I’d love to learn how to letter or write in calligraphy.
The best concert I’ve ever attended was Kari Jobe’s Orlando concert a couple of years back. We won tickets and met some of the band members.
I’m never without my favorite pen which is a $2 Bic pen.
The best super power to have would be to live for eternity (is that super power?!?!?!).
