Well here we are again, time for another WOYWW post, that's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, for the uninitiated. Julia, over at her Stamping Ground blog, hosts this weekly opportunity to snoop around the work spaces of crafters from around the world. so in the spirit of "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" here is the current state of my rather messy work table. Taking centre stage, are some papers which have been coated with resin. I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with them yet, but I found a pack of resin that I bought umpteen years ago and wasn't sure if it was any good. Having cracked open the two containers I was amazed to find that there was still liquid in them whoopee! I might just have a ferret around for more things purchased in sales from bygone years! in the meantime have a happy WOYWW and unless I'm whisked away to a Welsh seaside or maybe the Edinburgh Festival, I'll see you next week ! 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.
