Well here is my first completed tag for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012 challenge. Although I completed my 12 tags of Christmas I never uploaded them to his blog, so this time I'm going to try and get each one uploaded. Although I've been using a number of Tim's products for years, I'd been a bit resistant from really getting on board the Tim train, however in doing the Christmas tags, I found I learnt so much more about his products and techniques and have continued to put this knowledge into my current work. I also enjoyed the challenge of using what I'd already got and finding alternatives when I hadn't. So Tim you have another convert bring it on!
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
