Good morning WOYWW buddies, I've missed you all after being unable to join in Julia's WOYWW at her Stamping Ground Blog, but I don't want to slip off the radar so here I am with a rather static picture of my desk. I've just sorted out a few oriental themed stamps in the hope that I can join in the FSC this week, so all poised and ready to go. To the side of these are some stamped collages I did a while ago, I was going to use them as book covers but several years later still haven't got round to it. I like just 'playing' with stamps inks paint etc with no particular purpose in mind, so I end up with loads of pieces of work that are stuffed into folders and boxes and never see the light of day. So my project for the looming summer holidays ( which cannot come soon enough!) is to make a couple of Smash books and stuff them with some of my bits and pieces of work. Perhaps the covers will be used after all. Happy WOYWW everyone. 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.
