Meet the New Xyron Design Team - Jennifer Priest and Yvonne Yam

As we round out a wonderful week of introducing you to Xyron's newest Design Team members we'd like you to say hello to Jennifer Priest and Yvonne Yam!

name: Jennifer Priest
lives in: Hysperia, CA
blog: http://hydrangeahippo.com/blog/
why we love her:  In addition to having her finger on the pulse of the industry, Jennifer works in every possible medium with every possible technique to create projects that inspire us.  From kids crafts to home decor to jewelry and more, Jennifer's tutorials and project ideas give us the tools to be more creative.
a little bit about her: It started with jewelry, beading, sewing, home decor, painting, basket weaving, pottery, and cross-stitch. Marry that to an entrepreneurial spirit & at 9 years old I was selling my wares at craft fairs as far as my parents and grandparents would drive me. These days, I enjoy crafts of all genres from sewing to scrapbooking to jewelry with a little dabbling in the mixed media world. My style is approachable and I want everyone who sees my work to feel that they too can embrace creativity and make their home and life beautiful.




name: Yvonne Yam
lives in: Singapore
blog: http://yyam.blogspot.com/
why we love her: We were totally blown away by the way Yvonne takes ordinary items and turns them in to art.  Her ability to bring textures and colors and patterns together in unexpected ways made us giddy - we can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
a little bit about her: Hello there! My name is Yvonne Yam and I hail from the sunny island of Singapore. I love to make stuff, using unexpected found stuff. My style is eclectic at best but really a mishmash of whatever tickles my fancy at that point in time! I love to experiment with mediums and play with textures but my projects always involves some form of upcycling and loads of colour! :)




Yay Jennifer and Yvonne!  So happy to have you!  Tune in tomorrow on the Xyron Facebook Page where we will share an album filled with all of our Design Team members' favorite projects.  It will inspire you!
