An Adoring Adieu to the Works of Donna Espiritu!


We love the incredible Donna Espiritu! She's been with us the past two years and we have adored each and every one of her awesome DT projects. She always provides such incredible ideas and can make whatever you ask her to - layouts, cards, altered art, organization ideas - she can do it all! We love the amazing Donna and the incredible projects she shares with us today. You will fall in love all over again with Donna's beautiful work. We will miss her on our team. Let's see what Donna has to say about her creative life:


1. How do you cre8time for crafting?  - My crafting time usually starts when everyone is asleep already. So, that would be really late at night until dawn. I do create during the day if it's possible. But since my craft area is also in our bedroom, our daughter tends to suddenly disturb me by getting my papers or worse the scissors. So I try to avoid that lol! I hope when she is a bit older and can understand, we'll be able to play together with mommy's toys :D

2. What is your favorite G45 Collection? - Oh this is difficult! Can I choose at least two? haha! I would say Precious Memories and Baby to bride! I love the colors in these two collections and the theme obviously because of my daughter. But I love florals and these are the best for me! :)

3. How has your crafting style evolved in the last year, and where do you see your path heading? - I believe my style changed a lot. Being on the Graphic 45 Design Team made me conscious of the quality of what I create. I learned how to create projects that are both functional and pretty at the same time. I still see myself creating and creating! I would like to motivate myself to join challenges. I rarely do that anymore. And I guess that would also prep me somehow for the next G45 audition! ha! I would like to keep the positive vibe :D

Thank you so much Graphic 45. From the bottom of my heart.. You are the first ever BIG company that believed in me. I am so grateful for that. I am an avid fan forever!
