Well its that time again and I've not posted anything since last week! Still I couldnt miss joining in Julia's WOYWW over at her Stamping Ground blog ,even though I've not had much time for crafting this week. We had a lovely time with our friends who were over from Spain at the weekend, as well as my doing a children's workshop on Saturday, printing bunting with a group of visually impaired children and their brothers and sisters. It was a fun day but I think I've been recovering ever since. So it's been a quiet week in the attic with just a little time to peruse my signed copy of THE BOOK which arrived yesterday. Lots of good ideas contained within and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in. At the top right, you can see my roll of ASBO tape, Its sticky backed aluminium foil and there's a great idea in Tim's book which I shall be using this for watch this space.
Here's a closeup of the ASBO tape. I got this from my local hardware shop, only £4.99! Because it's sticky backed you can attach it to any surface really easily, it can then be embossed and painted.
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.
