Well here I am, back after a brief absence from the fabulous 'What's on Your Work-desk Wednesday,' hosted by the lovely Julia over at her Stamping Ground blog. I've really missed not joining in for the last few weeks so it's good to be back. It's a great way of meeting and introducing yourself to fellow like minded crafters. This is my desk after a brief crafty session spent making my January tag for the Twelve Tags Challenge. There's the usual pile of Distress inks and a few embellishments. You may spy some rather interesting stamps which were free with a magazine. Who doesn't love free stamps, especially when they are this good. Now cast your eyes to the centre, what can you see? why a space of course, just about enough room for another session! 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.
