As you might know we recently put out a Design Team Call because we wanted to expand here at Ready-Teddy-Go.
We had a fantastic response and I was humbled to find so many very talented crafters wanted to come and join us.
We were initially looking for 6 crafters but it was a difficult task for my team and me to select just 6 so we grew our numbers by 8 new members.
The skills of those who threw their hat into the ring was so high and their blogs were so entertaining.
Cream always rises to top doesn't it and their talent shone through
So this morning, I am so pleased and excited to introduce the first four new DT members in their own words.
We've 'adopted' them into our RTG family already but they won't 'go-live' with their first projects until July.

Hello, my name is Kelly Lloyd.

Hi my name is Judith, I’m married to my childhood sweetheart and live on the coast in the North East of England – I just couldn't imagine ever not living near to the beach.
I have a daughter and two sons and I’m also Grandma to a gorgeous little boy- Jacob born in December 2011.
I work part time for a government department and generally enjoy my job.
I have always just loved to craft and I have been making cards for around 7 years - I spend all my spare time colouring, cutting and sticking – at least that’s the way my husband sees it!
I’m just thrilled to bits to be part of this talented design team and look forward to the start of each new Ready Teddy month!
