Marie Otake – Cameo Ribbonista
My name is Marie. I am a full time mom, retail manager, and crafter, meaning I get no sleep! Yes, I sacrifice sleep to craft! I have always been a huge fan of arts and crafts, begging my parents for all sorts of supplies as a child and doing a lot of Origami. It wasn't until a few years ago that it became a passion. My parents were celebrating their 25th Anniversary and they had asked me to make invites. I mentioned to a coworker what I working on, and she told me about Scrapbooking. I've done scrapbooks before, but not the way she described it. I went to the store, purchased a stack of paper, a cutter, and glue. From that moment, there was no turning back. I've tried my hands on plenty of craft types, from scrapbooks to cards, altered projects to jewelry making. My goal is to try every sort of craft so I can utilize every trick I can learn! It is such an honor to be part of May Arts' design team, being the huge ribbon addict like I am! I can't wait to inspire and be inspired during my term!
