Joe Morgan has always been fond of crafting. His favorite holiday is Halloween and, perhaps instinctively, his black cat is named Elphaba (after the wicked witch in Wicked). Joe enjoys stamping, embossing, card making, learning new techniques and scrapbooking, along with paper crafting home décor items – like garden lanterns with paper silhouettes and an antique finish. Joe served on the design team for Viva Las Vegastamps! and frequently has had his cards published in Scrap and Stamp Arts and Just Steampunk! magazines. After living across the US, Joe has settled in Columbus, OH with his partner. Joe is on the design team for Create & Craft, where he enjoys developing new class ideas and teaching an occasional class at stores or exhibitions.
