Welcome back, Odd friends around the world! It’s Day Two of our design team introductions. Leah l’Orange here, getting ready to start this party with a fun little thing going on in our Facebook community, but first, our Odd Girls!
These ladies are not only talented with their craft, but they also seriously take the bull by the horns when it comes to the behind-the-scenes stuff like planning our events and postings on our social media channels and making sure it all goes down smoothly.
Say hello to the rest of the core team!
Social Media right hand (the OTHER right hand!).

I am one of those honest gals that walk around totally geeking on random things like manga, Dr Who and kittens. My crafting style is a mirror of myself – bold, simple and definitely scruffy around the edges. While I am an introvert, I am not afraid to freely give truthful answers to questions that others may have. I love when crafters share their gifts, and oddly enough I don’t compare myself too much with others. I love creating my cards and sharing so that the love I feel inside can be seen by others. I am complicated and forthright and most of all – I am me.

Hello! My name is Alexis Kemp and I’m crazy excited to be back on the Some Odd Girl design team! I’m from Tampa Florida and live a cozy life with my awesome husband and my oddball cat. When I’m not in the studio, I work in Marketing, I attend regular Bar Method classes and I loiter at Theme Parks or on my sofa for a good movie. I can’t wait to share all of my Odd projects with you and get to know everyone better! This year is going to be made of awesome!

Her blog – Needful Things
Hi all, I’m MelissaO. I’m a quirky gal who spends a LOT of time coloring and crafting! My coloring is mostly done with Copic Markers, maybe a little color pencil once in a while. I like whimsical, fun images, and tend to lean toward bright colors. I was a scrapbooker for 15 years before I discovered stamping so I’ve been into paper arts for a long time.
I live in a tiny rural town in Illinois, I’m married to a great man, and we have 4 wonderful children. Besides being a coloring addict, I also do a lot of reading, horse riding, and I volunteer for a few animal rescues. I’m super excited to be an Odd Girl and I hope I can inspire you to get your “Odd” on.
And The Odd Girl herself, Kristy Dalman!
Odd like nobody’s business.
Her blog – The Odd Girl (of course!)
I’m Kristy, a 33 year old girl living in Fennville, Michigan. I have two seriously silly kiddos and a very understanding hubs who’ve I’ve been married to for 9 years now. Even though I’m a small town country girl now, I grew up in Kalamazoo, MI (yes, its a real place and yes, I’ve been asked that before lol). I moved out to the lakeshore to be with my hubs and haven’t regretted it since!
I’m the Owner/Artist/Designer of Some Odd Girl Stamps. I’ve been a crafty, artsy girl since forever and finding a career in a creative field has always been my number one dream. I worked grocery retail for 11 years before following my dream and taking the plunge to make my biz, Some Odd Girl, my full time gig. I worked my grocery job and worked on Some Odd Girl (that was like a second full time job!) for almost a year. It became very apparent that to keep up with both (not to mention kids and family) was burning me out and something had to give. Not to mention I wanted to take Some Odd Girl to the next level and that meant more commitment so I left my grocery job in Nov 2010. Since then thing have gotten bigger and better!
I was lucky to have such a supportive family who has been behind me since the get go. My hubs does all the tech work for the site, effectively turning my vague thoughts and sketches into reality. My kiddos are constant inspiration just by being them (they were the inspiration behind Tia and Tobie).
I love a life where not only I can make others happy but support my family and keep them happy at the same time! I’m so thankful that thru all the unnamed bumps in the road this is where we are headed.
And welcome, Oddies! We’re so happy you’re with us for the ride, and it’s going to be a great year!
