I have had great fun running this blog, entering challenges and actually winning prizes! but the thing I have enjoyed most, is linking up with fellow crafts people and in some small way getting to know a brilliant bunch of people. I know it's not quite the same as meeting up for a coffee but some how through blogging you get to know and care about the people you meet. I have found the fantastic comments that people regularly leave on my blog (you know who you are!) both uplifting and inspiring. In celebration of reaching 50 + 2 followers, I would like to offer this somewhat weird array of blog candy. I love finding bargains in shops such as Poundland, The Works and Lidl, so I've put together some of my favourite finds. There are some 'alterables' such as blank puzzles and an embossed frame crying out for treatment, as well as some practical stuff such as brilliant foam tape and aluminium foil tape. On the 1st of October, I shall put the names of all my followers into a hat and ask my husband, to draw out one lucky winner. I will ask the winner to email me their address and the candy will be posted off to them. So THANKYOU my dear followers for all your support.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.
