Maggie, Bowdabra Design Team Member
My name is Margaret “Maggie” Schoener. I am originally from a small town of suburban Philadelphia, but I’ve been in Houston, Texas for over 40 years now. I’m a single mom with 2 grown daughters and 4 awesome grandchildren. I’m also “mom” to 4 furbabies who live in my house, Chancey, Paisley, Reggie, and Maggie Mae who are the inspiration for my Stamp Haven and blog - I also have 5 outside kitties that I love just as much and take care of. I’ve only been blogging since July which I started to showcase my cards.
I learned a love of crafting from my mom, mostly then it was needlework of all kinds. I was an avid seamstress and made many of my own and children’s clothes. I even made a suit jacket for my then husband. I’ve been paper crafting for a lot of years starting with scrapbooking and then moving on to rubber stamping. I love all things creative, but there’s only time for so much especially with a full time job. I love a challenge and have seen my style evolve over the years and have enjoyed learning so many different techniques. My passion right now are Copic markers and I am a Certified Copic Designer. One of my drawbacks has been that I am so “bow challenged” and can never make a good looking bow. A friend told me about the Bowdabra and I ordered one right away and am so glad that I did. First, it’s been a big help in my card making and because of that, I was “found” by Sarah. I’m so honored and excited to be invited to be a part of the Design Team for Bowdabra. I look forward to continuing to learn and grow in my craft and making a contribution to Bowdabra.
