Well half way through the week and time for another WOYWW or What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday. For more details about the biggest craft blog snoop on the net, hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground blog and get involved. It is coming up to the 4th anniversary of this wonderful blog hop and Julia is proposing another ATC swap. So you've got plenty of time to get in it. So this is what's on my table this week, I've been having a little play as I'm on holiday this week and this is the aftermath. I'm working on a little canvas which you can see propped up at the back. So let's see what you can spy. I'm also posting a picture of another 'work table in my house which my son has commandeered. He has a degree in animation, and is working on some models for his next piece. He's learning to sew and this is what I've got to put up with until he goes back to Berlin next week !I think they look rather cute so far. if you want a little light relief whilst crafting you can see a couple of his vids on you tube here and here (sorry Julia) I'm not advertising just spreading the love. 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.
