Amy Tan

Hi, my name's Amy Tan, though many people know me for my company name, which is Amy Tangerine. I live in Venice, California, just 5 blocks from the beach. It's a cozy place shared with Mr. Wonderful. I enjoy spending time with my 2 Jack Russell Terriers, Buster and Bamboo, riding my pink beach cruiser, traveling, eating, being at home, spending time with loved ones, and of course being creative. Over the past couple years I have been trying to perfect the art of truly living, which to me includes working smarter, not harder, globetrotting, achieving balance, and simplifying. Being crafty makes me happy and being happy is really important to me. Here's my favorite quote: "The secret to life is knowing how to make the bad times good and the good times unforgettable.
Amy Coose

My name is Amy Coose, and I live in Northern Virginia with my hubby of 15 years, my 11 year old hockey player, Austin, and my 9 year old dancer, Georgia.  I have been scrapping for over 10 years, and still love it as much if not more than I did when I first started.  I love that it preserves special moments in our lives and gives me a creative outlet as well.  When I'm not scrapbooking, I teach part-time, and just LOVE it!  I am so excited to be a part of The Girl's Loft, and can't wait to work with the gorgeous kits each month!

Melissa Mann

Hello! My name is Melissa and I currently reside in Pensacola, Florida - just 15 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. I grew up in the South and after a 6 year stint in northern Maryland, realized that I would never be cut out for cold weather! I've been married for 6 years to a great guy named Troy who puts up with my obsession of paper & glue! I like books, Jason Statham, cooking, "Dancing with the Stars", & Christmas music. I don't like rudeness, spiders, "The Office", & yes, I admit it, seafood. I started scrapbooking in 2005 after my husband talked me into finding a hobby. Sometimes, I wonder if he regrets that ;-)
