Me in a Nutshell

Bonnie Crane

I live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in Penticton, British Columbia. I moved to this milder climate from Alberta after my retirement as a teacher. What should have been the most wonderful time of my life took an abrupt turn as my husband became critically ill.  It was during these darkest hours I turned to card making for some respite from the feelings of sadness and grief. 

I started out by taking a few classes and shamelessly copying cards of my favourite bloggers.  I have always been a crafter and worked with a variety of media. It soon became clear that card making would be the perfect vehicle to express creativity in a variety of forms.  As I learned new techniques and my skills improved, I began designing my own cards and posting them on Instagram as @bonniecarollee. I am currently a design team member  The Simon Says Stamp Design Family. I periodically guest design for

Alex Syberia Design I designed for Gracielliie Design from November, 2020 to January, 2021.
