welcome our next Scraptastic teacher

Donna Downey!!

Donna Downey is a bestselling author, instructor and all-around creative force in the crafting industry. In 2000, she got into scrapbooking as an extension of her paper product and photography addiction. This was only the beginning. From working as a popular columnist for Simple Scrapbooks magazine, to traveling the world inspiring women to push the boundaries of their own creativity, to developing her first fabric scrapbooking line with Prima, Donna is consistently on the leading edge of all things cool related to memory preservation art.
As a craft-media artist, Donna is a born experimenter, blending and transforming both traditional and unexpected items into meaningful pieces of self expression. A former elementary school teacher, she has synthesized her first love of teaching with her passion for craft and brings this to women via workshops at scrapbook stores and events, writing books, and through her popular blog and website.
Donna lives in North Carolina with her husband, and is a mother of three exceptionally blonde children, and one blonde dog. She also has recently opened Donna Downey Studios located in Charlotte, NC.

Sharon is currently the Design Team Coordinator, Media Relations and Event Coordinator contact for Prima, while also being a wife to Bill, and mom to seven children (Bethany, Brittany, Breanna, Billy, Brayden, Jonathan & Josiah.)
