I have been working with Orna for almost a year now, and I have not yet introduced myself. Here I go... Hi! My name is Rae!

I spend much of my time attempting to make the kits that we send out look as beautiful as possible and organizing/reorganizing the studio so it can be used to its full potential.

I have many new talents:

It is nice to meet you all! I am sure that I will have some sort of correspondence with many of you in the future! YAY!
