Introducing our November Guest Designer!!

Hello and Happy Saturday! I hope that your weekend is off to a good start.

It is already time to introduce our next talented guest designer for November. We are so excited to have Marushka joining us this month! Here is a little about Marushka:

November GDT - Marushka


My name is Marushka Volkova. I am a Russian patchwork and quilting designer with a passion for making a scrapbook. I live by the Sea of Japan with my husband and our beloved fur baby, cat Musya. Sewing and scrapbooking are my current obsession, but you will also find me taking photographs, reading, decorating, planting, and hanging out with my family and friends. I love taking pictures of my daily life and then making pages with the photos.
I always have a bunch of photos at hand that I am ready to turn into new scrapbook pages. 
I believe in the magic power of handmade and share my hobbies on Instagram @marushkavolkova and on my blog www.marushkavolkova.blogspot.com.

Welcome, Marushka! We are thrilled that you are joining us this month!

We will be back tomorrow with a new theme and a new set of challenges so be sure to stop back by!
