Hi, my name is Mai Larsen and I am the creator of a Latina group called Creando Con Detalles.  I am happily married with four children, currently living in Rock Springs, Wyoming.  I’m the new editor for a Spanish Newspaper in our local community.   
I have always been passionate about crafting, but I have never had so much fun as I have in the past several years.  Shortly after my mom passed away in 2008, I was invited to a cardmaking party, and it was love at first sight.  I was completely hooked with the idea of using my current crafting skills with my new found hobby of papercrafting.  

 Karen Lackey

Karen loves to learn new techniques and combine them in unexpected ways. She has studied paper arts, paper making, rubber stamping, encaustic art, mixed media techniques, sewing, metalsmithing, wire working, bead stringing, glass bead making, off loom weaving, and more. She’s currently exploring hand dyeing fibers and bookbinding.
Karen owns Starshine Salon, an artful gathering of vintage finds and original designs. Starshine Salon is not a single place, but is rather Karen’s gathering of art, artists and artifacts designed to delight and educate, inspired by the salons of the 17th and 18th centuries, where music was played, art was viewed, and ideas were discussed.
Karen has been sewing since she was a child, and learned to make jewelry when she moved to Arizona in the early 1990s. She turned these passions into a business in 1995, and later added vintage items to her offerings. She started rubber stamping in 1996 and has been paper crafting ever since

Peggy Oliver

I am a mother of three and a crafty scrapper.  I have been crafting for four years but I have always been dabbling in something artistic. I have designed web sites and logos to promotional marketing materials.
Today I am a stay at home mom and I recently moved into a home with enough space for a whole room devoted to my crafts. Who knew hoarding craft materials in the bedroom closet could fill an entire room.  I love mixed media and texture. I look forward to a creative adventure with Sakura Hobby Craft!
