Welcome to our Guest DT member, Esther

Hi - I'm Esther, I have been crafting all my life and discovered scrapbooking in 1997. I have a busy, stressful day job so crafting is my therapy and I love rubber stamping and getting messy and in inky. I was thrilled to be asked to be guest designer at Archiscraps and enjoyed relaxing over my zentangle page. 
 

The DT have had fun drawing zentangles for you
