Welcome to my new blog. My name is Lori and I am a Senior Designer for Altered Arts Magazine. I have been a member of Altered Arts' design team for three years now and each year is more exciting than the first.

Being a designer can have its ups and downs. The upside is that I have the opportunity to work with a fantastic crew! --- Cyndi, Clara, Barb and all the other design team members which include Robin, Jeni and Kathleen.

Each year the designers are given an editorial schedule to follow when creating their projects. It is so much fun to see how the themes are interpreted by both the designers and our readers who submit artwork for each theme.

Now the downside of being a designer is that we don't get to "meet" each other in person... BUT...in this world that we live in today, we can cross over mountains, rivers, valleys and oceans without a car, train, or plane and "visit" each other by blogging! Therefore, I look forward to "meeting" all of you.

For some fun we will be having some challenges among the designers posted here for you to view. If you have any ideas for challenges you'd like to see or participate in please let us know.
