Just got back from work so thought I'd better let you see what's been going on in the attic. Julia's Stamping Ground Blog provides all of us nosey crafters with a place to go and take a peek at each others' desks from all around the world. I've noticed that whatever size table or desk we have and whatever country, there is a tendency to fill up the space with stuff, reducing the actual work area to the size of a postage stamp! ok slight exaggeration A4 sheet perhaps. My desk hasn't had much going on this week as I've been busy at work. You can see a collection of number stencils I've cut on my Pazzles Inspiration, these are to use at a children's workshop on Friday. I'm doing some sessions at a local school and this week the theme is the Olympic Games. I'll post some photos of the finished work later on. It's shaping up nicely so far. Happy WOYWW and thanks to all the people who have left such nice comments on my blog over the last few months x
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.
