"Wednesday all ready!" the cry goes up all around the world as bloggers far and wide realize that it's time to share their desks. Why? well it's all down to Julia and her Stamping Ground blog. Julia had the brilliant idea of making it possible for us to visit our blogging friends and take a peek at each others work space. If you haven't joined in yet, get that camera out and start posting a picture of your work space. Simples! I've got plenty of stuff on my table this week as I was making a birthday card for a young man yesterday.So you can see the remains of my activity. I was slightly following the video Tim Holtz has made for the Simon Says Stamptember, you can see this on his blog. Well I'm back to work and somewhat resigned to it. The holiday ended on a good note though, as I was picked as one of the August Tag winners on Tim's blog and now have $25 to spend on even more craft stuff, thank you to everyone for the nice messages, so Mustn't Grumble 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.
