Please welcome Robin Francini.

I am a long time crafter, thanks to the women on my maternal side. I have the fondest memories crafting with my mom, grandmother, and my great grandmother. Crafting with them was different from my crafting today, we used macaroni to decorate boxes and make necklaces, wrapping paper and doilies to craft ornaments for our tree, and felt and white wash clothes for our stocking for the holidays. I miss those times. However, fast forward and I am into everything; mixed media, coloring, card making, books of all kinds, junk journals, mini and large, and my most recent interest, upcycling everyday used items in my crafts, paper rolls, empty sewing bobbins, etc.

I am a born and raised North East Ohio girl, USA. I enjoy spending most of my winter in my little slice of heaven, my craft room, as I am not fond of our winters. I am a Mom, sister, grandmother, friend, ex roller derby girl, moon lover, tea lover, paranormal investigator, retired Cosmetologist. I am a Jill of trades and like to think I am a master of all.

Thank you for joining the Crafts Galore Encore Design Team, Robin. We hope you enjoy your stay.
