Donna O'leary
Hello :-) My name is Donna O'leary (aka midnightscrapper). My family and I live in a city call Dunedin in a wee country called New Zealand. There is 9 of us, Mum (me), Dad and 7 children which keep me busy.  At night time when they are all tucked in bed I retreat to my craft room where I love to create: layouts, the odd card and my favorite thing to do, off the page projects or altered art.   I spend many hours going threw second hand shops looking for treasures to alter.  I love stamping and ink!  I teach scrapbooking at our local scrapbooking store, design for our New Zealand scrapbooking magazine as part of the elite team.  I have been on a number of design teams and am very excited to be joining the WOW global team.  You can find my blog here

I have been card making and scrapbooking professionally for 12 years but it all started when I swapped Geography GCSE for Art at school because I didn’t like Geography. I scrapbook for my family and love learning about our heritage and treasure the memories of our family old and new. I do bespoke scrap canvas and scrapbooks and demonstrate products for companies and teach workshops on both subjects all over the North West and cannot think of a nicer way to spend my days. My philosophy is  ‘There are no mistakes in art, only happy accidents’ and I love starting off with a plain canvas and watching it transform.

I hold an A level in Art, am a qualified trainer, and assessor and have attained my Certificate in Education. I have been police vetted for the Education Sector and Girl Guide Association.

Tania Ahmed - Design Team Coordinator
Like many on our extremely talented Design team, I have been crafting almost all my life and dabbled in everything from sewing, beadwork, embroidery, and jewellery making. These days my vices are: cardmaking, art journalling, mini albums, mixed media and the smell of new stamps! I've been married for almost 4 years to the most wonderful man who has encouraged me to pursue my dreams. I feel very blessed to be able to work in the crafting industry. I am so thrilled about the projects that our Team has made!
