A DT application as though I was writing an email.......

My name is Margaret (I prefer to be called Marg) & I would like to apply to be a member on your 
Design Team please.
I am a 53 year old disabled (single parent to a 17 year old daughter), unable to work due to various, quite serious disabilities in my spine & various other ailments including a lesser known form of Muscular Dystrophy which is an inherited progressive genetic disease but is not life threatening.  I therefore craft to keep my mind & hands creative. Ive always been creative anyway, but I know I just cant sit & watch television or on the laptop all day everyday, equally I am unable to work due to immense pain. Crafting is my therapy, my life.
My creative streak has always been with me, (drawing, sewing, cross stitch) but only the last 6 years have I been creating cards good enough to sell. I have improved so much, getting both creative & better over the years.  
Creating a papercraft project now, I'm very lucky that I can pick up a piece of scrap craft material & put a card together using that one piece., equally though, I can follow a sketch &/or theme to the letter or diversify when needed.
Why you should choose me:  I can diversify from clean & simple to "decorative", I complete all of my projects on time & to the letter of instruction.  I am at home all day/most days due to not being able to work which gives me the natural daylight (plus my Ottlite lamp) to give me the best possible finish to my colouring. I have 45+ Graph It pens + my Promarkers & Flexmarkers give me a good range of colours to use. I like to think that I am good at colouring in any image. Lastly, I have no particular style, but I can honestly say, that I do love stamping & colouring with alcoholic pens & occasionally with watercolour pencils.  I use digi stamps as well as rubber stamps, and have a very wide range of both.
I am on to the DT of Crafty Ribbons, a website with Pure Inspiration, a basic blog, a Challenge blog. and a Facebook page for the DT. I accepted this position on May 7th 2014.   
I am currently on the DT for Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog & a member of their DT Facebook group:
where I have been a member since October 2nd 2013 
PREVIOUS: where if firstly a Guest DT member for a 2 months term, then on the main team for a further 3 months until I decided to end this partnership as I accepted a Wedding Stationary commission which will be taking up a certain amount of my time.
Stampin' For The Weekend Challenge Blog & a member of their Facebook group:
where I have been a member since the end of August 2013 & is ended in July due to time restrictions from the coordinator. 
DigiStamps4Joy from May 2013 - !st October 2013 as my term was over.
Guest DT for Quirky Craft for a 2 month challenge period of time. I have been told to apply in the future should any permanent positions should be come available.
