Welcome Guest Designer Keri Lee Sereika

Please welcome this weeks guest blogger Keri Lee Sereika. Many of you may be familiar with Keri's work as she is frequent contributor in Crafts n' Things, designer for Card Positioning Systems (CPS) and a former designer for Cornish Heritage Farms. Keri is a regular visitor at the JustRite blog, and we are thrilled that she will be sharing her creations with us all this week. Can't wait to Keri's designs visit her blog pink lemonade.

1. Tell us where you live.
I live in beautiful sunny South Carolina with my husband of seven and a half years and our three kids.

2. Tell us about your family.
My husband flies the C-17 Globemaster III for the USAF and I currently homeschool our oldest son who turned school age this year. My kids are all two years apart and are a blast to be mom to! While it is sometimes tough to feel like I have a good grip on reality and a handle on my sanity I wouldn't trade my life and lifestyle for anything!

3. Tell us how long you have been stamping.
I began stamping about five years ago...never realizing what it would come to mean to me and how it would change my life and how I look at things!

4. Tell us where you do your stamping.
I am really blessed. I have a 16x20 ft studio up above our two car garage that I just remodled last year and have tons of beautiful cabinets and EIGHTEEN FEET of counter top to use while I create. So I can now have MULTIPLE projects going at once and not run out of room...it is amazing...you can see pics on my blog if you would like to see the before and after pics!

5. Tell us what is your must have stamping tool.
My Bypass Paper Trimmer by Fiskars...I like all my mats nice and even, and I love being able to trim just the tiniest bit to make it all just rite. Hahah no pun intended.

6. Tell us how long have you been blogging.
I started my blog July 4th 2006. I was sitting at the computer and was waiting to go to a picnic and decided it was time to start a blog! So, no knowing what I was getting into and not knowing A THING about blogs I jumped in with both feet. I blog first for me, then for my readers and sometimes I just don't blog. My family comes first and so when things get crazy I just post that life is crazy and I will be back to blogging once life settles...and so far my readers are just awesome and understand that if a few days go by, not to worry, I will be back! :)

7. Tell us who is currently your favorite paper company.
Ohhh that is a tough one....for cardstock I am a total Prism Princess. Love their vast array of colors and the texture is divine!!! As for patterned papers..well the pretty category goes to Anna Griffin, Webster's Pages and K& Company....I use their stuff alot and have had great success with both those companies many beautiful lines.
For Cute and Fun well that category goes to...hmmm that is a tough one...I don't use it as much as I should but I love October Afternoon & Cloud Nine right now! LOL You will see alot of that in the near future on my blog! LOL

8. Tell us what are you currently addicted to .
Well, I love ribbon and brads...always have...they scream class and ease to me...but I am right now finding I love hot fix crystals by Kandi Corp...they add just the right bit of sparkle to my projects with out making them look cheap....

9. Tell us your favorite paper crafting season and why.
Oh man another toughy....I love to craft Christmas projects...and everyday gift projects....I like knowing that what I create is going to make someone else's day just a bit brighter...even if it is a simple card to say "hello, I am thinking of you" it makes me all warm and fuzzy to know my love of paper, ink and stamps makes someone else smile!

Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".
