Designer Saturday: Doreen O’Brien


This week we’re excited to help you get to know the talented Doreen O’Brien and share some of her fabulous favourite projects:

“Hello, I’m Doreen; married with three children and two Grandchildren. I’m a newcomer to Crafter’s Companion, having just joined in February. I love being in this fabulous team.

I have crafted most of my life one way or another but serious paper crafting started in 2009 after I retired from working as a nurse for 35 years. I now run a community craft group in my area and have had the pleasure of being published in several magazines. I think my most favourite technique is Distressing with inks.”
