A busy morning so far, dropped my car off for it's MOT and then went to have my eyes tested. Hooray! new glasses downside... price! Still there's nothing quite like the clarity of a new pair of glasses so I shall look forward to receiving them. In the meantime it's WOYWW #166 and time to have a little look at what everyone has been up to. If you haven't joined in a What's On Your Work desk/table/space Wednesday as hosted by the lovely Julia at her Stamping Ground blog, then I strongly suggest you do. It's a great opportunity to visit fellow crafters from all around the world and if you do, I guarantee you will enjoy looking at everyone's desks whether they're neat and tidy or piled high with the stuff we all love. My desk this week features a couple of cards I've been making using some Graphic 45 stamps. There's one to send to my lovely auntie and one to stash for a future girly birthday. In a few minutes, I'm going to clear a space and have a little play not sure where this will lead but I know I will have some fun. Happy WOYWW 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.
