Well here we are at the end of the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012 Challenge and the final two tags. Both were, as usual, great fun to make. It's been a fantastic year long challenge and I am very happy that I've managed to complete each months tag. I've loved learning new techniques, improvising when I haven't had all the supplies and seeing all the fabulously creative work from the participants each month. The anticipation of each tag has added a little excitement to the start of each new month and the joy of seeing my name as a winner has been fantastic. So thank you Tim for all your efforts in hosting this brilliant challenge. Like many others, I'm looking forward to seeing what genius ideas you have in store for 2013.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.
