Hello! Let my introduce myself...I am Tina Goodwin from Toadally Love to Craft. I am married to a former Marine. We were best friends in high school and finally started dating 8 years after we graduated. We have been married for 19 years this year. We are originally from Washington State, but have lived in Alaska for the last 14 years. We have 4 children. One boy (the oldest) and three girls. In April we will be welcoming our first grandchild, a girl, into our crazy bunch. I enjoy, hiking, hunting, camping, gardening, and cooking. I love animals. We have 2 dogs, 3 cats and we also foster kittens for our local animal shelter.
Now on to the stuff you really want to know! I have been crafting for almost 25 years. I started out with scrapbooking and it expanded from there. I have played around with everything from cake decorating, to woodworking, to crocheting, to mixed media and more. In 2010 I inherited a few Copic Markers from my Mother-in-Law, but never used them. In 2014 I bought a set of Spectrum Noir markers. In 2015 I switched to Copics and fell in love! I started teaching Copics in 2018 to a few local ladies. I went from that to doing lives on Facebook to teaching at retreats online and in Florida and Illinois.
In 2022, with a kick in the pants from a good friend, I started a website and started selling online coloring classes of my own. Some of the classes are live and some are prerecorded.
I have been on several design teams over the years. My very first DT opportunity was in 2014. I applied and was accepted to The Cutting Café Design Team. Some of the other teams include, La-La Land Crafts, Faery Ink, Through the Craftroom Door (online magazine), My Besties, Ady Almanza, Paper Nest Dolls, Renee Bouquets, Moon Flower, and Rubbernecker, Twisttoon, Meet at the Scrappers Corner . I have recently started a new DT which I will be announcing soon! Although not on the DT, I work closely with Scrappy Boy Stamps. Using some of his images for my classes, guest designing for them periodically and teaching for them at their very first in person retreat this year.
I have had projects showcased on the UK’s version of HSN and had cards published in Paper Craft Essentials, and Passion Cartes Creatives.
