Well here's my desk, those who know me will recognise the usually chaos with lots of stuff jostling for my attention. Why am I posting this? because it's Wednesday of course and time to join in with Julia at Stamping Ground's WOYWW, or What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday. I've had a lovely few crafty sessions this weekend, and this is the remaining mess with a few added extras. Instead of putting things away I've added to the pile by getting out some Christmas Stamps ready for some action later this week, I hope. i think I'll have to clear a space first though! I would like to use this post to wish all our American crafty friends a very happy Thanks Giving Day for tomorrow. Even when life seems pretty grim I think we can all find something to be thankful for. 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.
