Biography: Hello, my name is Heidi Blankenship and I live in Minnesota with my husband Eric and two sons, Dusty and Evan. I love to create a large spectrum of projects with a broad range of styles, but I lean towards the vintage and artsy styles. Currently, I love doing acrylic fluid painting, resin painting, resin and alcohol ink art, combining watercolor with paper crafts, and designing handmade jewelry.  I have been professionally designing in the craft and jewelry industry for 11 years as a freelance designer.  In addition to that I have been designing, creating, and teaching for 25+ years.  I've been very fortunate to work with some wonderful companies in the industry. I am currently designing for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team, Friends of ICE Resin/Ranger, and Pink Ink Stamps LLC.  I have been published in a variety of national and international magazines, catalog/idea books and newsletters, as well as various manufacturer product packaging and sales ads. My design work has also been featured on Scrapbooking Memories, QVC, HSN, Creative Home Arts and Create & Craft TV in the UK just to name a few.  I have also been a design team coordinator, created YouTube videos for companies with tutorials, and some social media for a few companies.   I love creating jewelry, canvas art, cards, mixed media, and home décor.  I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, photography, floral design, and gardening.To see all of my design work please visit my blog Embellished Dreams.  You can also find me on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTubeGoogle+, and Instagram. ;-)
