I'm a bit late with my WOYWW today as have had quite a busy day. The afternoon proving to be far more enjoyable than the morning which was spent catching up on a bit of housework after a rather lazy Jubilee bank holiday. Thanks again to Julia for hosting the WOYWW on her Stamping Ground Blog. The ATC swap from last week was great fun I have just one more to put in the post and have received some lovely ones so will do a separate post to show these off later in the week. So what's been going on today, I had a great big tidy up after the chaos of last week. Note photo number 1 completely clear table! Not quite so clear now as my lovely friend Sandy from Sandy's piece of Heaven came round to play. It was my turn to set the activity so I decided that we would have a go at making paper feathers. I found great tutorial here at Todolwen there are some lovely ideas on her blog well worth checking it out. We added colour to ours with Distress inks and sprays by Dylusions and perfect pearls. Very absorbing and fun to do. So happy WOYWW to eveyone have fun x
These are my feathers, not bad for a first attempt, I'm looking forward to having another go at this.
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.
