Meet our January Guest Designer, Ann-Marie Espinoza

I have a funny story about our January Guest Designer. I was at CHA las summer and kept noticing this gal with a crazy fun top knot at the show. I went home to the hotel and did a YouTube search for how to do a top knot. A while later, I was looking for GDT and found Ann-Marie Morris on the Basic Grey blog, I went to her personal blog, checking out her style and such, when I discovered...

She was Crazy Fun Top Knot lady! She's been a joy to work with, and I LOVE her gallery, it's so very happy and true to her style! Imagine my delight when her top knot got featured!

She's since married since I asked her to join us this month, she's now Ann-Marie Espinoza.



Please check out her gallery and leave her lots of love, I think she did a great job showing what the kit can do. (She only worked with the main!)

Here's her bio, be sure to check out the blog on the 1st for a full introduction:
Ann-Marie is a freelance designer, crafter, and stylist living in Pasadena, California with her new husband John. She spends her days making things by hand, styling her home, and blogging for herself and BasicGrey. When she's not behind the computer or camera, you can find her thrifting for fun home decor pieces, taking as many Zumba and yoga classes as possible, or scrolling through her favorite blogs and Pinterest for visual inspiration. She is a paper enthusiast, flea market frequenter, Instagram-aholic, textbook introvert, photography fiend, and Mexican food lover who is always on the hunt for her next great creative adventure.

What a fun little background story! She can scrap, has such a keen sense of style and pulls off the top knot perfectly! So happy to welcome her at Cocoa Daisy this month!
