Here's my messy table after a nice afternoon spent with my old buddies ink, paint and paper ! There are a couple of new 'pals' in the form of my first batch of distress paints, and I can see these are going to something of a favourite with me. Have I gone mad you may ask why is she showing us this untidy table? well hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground blog and all will be revealed. The lovely Julia hosts this gathering of like minded souls every week and in fact, has been doing so for nearly 4 years! So why not have a go..... come on you know you want too. 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.
