About AJ Otto

AJ OttoAJ lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband, two children, and two dogs.
Her go to adhesive is the E-Z Squares Refillable and Crafty Foam Tape because everything needs to be popped up.
She volunteers at her children's school when time allows, and with their soccer teams/association, and works part time from home.
Her favorite treat is mint Frangos, and loves a tall Americano from Starbucks. (Typical Seattleite) She tends to make cards, although she recently has gotten back into beading, and is rekindling her desire to learn photography better.
She is on several other manufacturer Design Teams and has been published in most craft magazines. Check out AJ's blog at The Willow Garden
