Good morning all, WOYWW #213 already! The weeks seem to be flying by faster than ever. As you can see, my table bears the remains of a rather messy crafty session, the results of which can be be found later. By the looks of what's on the table you may be able to guess the theme. Taking centre stage is my Gelli plate. For those of you that haven't seen one, that's what they look like. They are great fun to use but they should come with a warning as they are rather addictive. I'm trying hard to master the art of Gelli printing with mixed results so far. I'm quite pleased with the results of this last session, so pop back sometime if you'd like to have a look. You may be totally confused at this point and wondering what all this desk showing is all about, if so, I suggest you pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground blog where you will be able to explore crafty desks from across the globe and if you like what you see, there's a very good chance I'll be seeing you here next week! Until then, Happy What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! 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.
