April Designer Guest; Donna Lanclos

This month we are proud to introduce everyone to a wonderful paper artist Donna Lanclos. Her work is an amazing eclectic combination of vintage flair and whimsy.
So just who is Donna? Well here is a bit about her in her own words.
Donna Lanclos is a self taught crafter who has enjoyed a plethora of crafting since
she was a young girl growing up in Louisiana.  She has formal training in oils,
pastels and charcoal and enjoyed many years of needle crafts.  Donna’s current
obsession is paper crafting, but she also enjoys gardening, reading, Mardi Gras,
cooking, photography, music and life in Cajun country.  She has been published in
Scrapstreet.com and Cricut.com and has won numerous challenges.  Donna has
recently opened the Lazy Lucy Retreat House in Lafayette, Louisiana.  She is
married to her best friend, who indulges her every whim, and together they have
5 children, 4 grand children and 4 fur babies.

For more works by this talented artist we invite you to check out her blog at
