Good evening fellow WOYWW'ers, hope everyone has been having a lovely day. I must say my working day ended on a bit of a bum note when someone drove into my car as I was leaving work. I'm glad to say that no one was hurt (that really means me!) but my 'new to me' car has now got a very ugly dent in it. Fortunately the very bad driver of the other car is insured and the 'accident' was quite straight forward so should not be a problem to sort out. So, it was very cheering to arrive home and find some more gorgeous ATC's waiting for me. Thank you Krisha for restoring me to a good mood. Thank you also to Lottie and Nikki for the lovely ATC's I received yesterday, I have really loved to see the care that you lovely ladies have put into making and packaging these little works of art, so very thoughtful. x So if you want to join in with the 5 year anniversary ATC swap in approximately 358 days time, hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground blog and find out all there is to know about 'What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday'. It's a whole lot of fun. For anyone that was interested in my mystery parcel from last week it was the Tim Holtz Word Play Die, a belated birthday present as it had been out of stock for a while, and here is a picture of what I did with the fern leaves and my new obsession, yes that's right a Gelli Plate. Happy WOYWW 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.
