All about me!

09/11/18

I thought I’d take some time today and up-date this page.

I feel I have been crafting since school days – sewing, cross stitch, but ‘found’ paper crafting and card making whilst taking a ‘forced’ 6 week off work after a back injury on holiday. Thankfully not serious and no long-lasting problems.

That was 11-12 years ago, and I’ve not looked back……………..(no pun intended)

I stated writing this blog in 2016, and didn’t really get into it, until my sister (Quebec, Canada) mentioned challenges. I needed a reason to make cards so I wasn’t wandering around aimlessly creating. I needed a focus, and inspiration – and the challenges certainly provide me with that.

I then ‘found’ Instagram – Wow! What an amazing place. 🙂

I have been inspired to try many things – how I make cards, from the ‘all in and nothing left out’ versions – to clean and simple cards. I love it all. I will have a go at most genres, but I find that currently I enjoy stamping – thank goodness for the Misti – and water-colouring. I;m also trying to get to grips with alcohol markers – watch this space!

I live in Derbyshire in the UK, with hubby and three cats. The cats try to help me craft sometimes – usually by sitting in front of me – but they can also sit on the top shelf of my Raskog trolley, or sit on my Cutterpillar…………

I generally give my cards to a charity to sell, or take them into work for my colleagues to have a look at.

I hope you enjoy looking around my blog, and visiting my Instagram postings.
