I promised to have a little giveaway following my paper flower step by step tutorial. I wrote all the names of the people who left a comment on my flower tutorial as well as those that commented on the flowers in my WOYWW post, on slips of paper and put them into my hat. As my son Max took the photos, I asked him to pick one out. I am pleased to announce that the very talented Butterfly is the name he drew out. Many thanks to all the people that left such lovely comments. I hope you'll join in when I have my next giveaway 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.
