Hi everybody! it's a little late in the month but let me wish a happy new year of Tim's Twelve Tags of 2015, to all you devotees of this fabulous challenge. This will be my fourth year of joining in and I don't think I've missed one, (I will be checking later to see if this is true!) Tim has got us of to a great start with this first tag. You can see Tim's tag by clicking on this link. I've followed Tim's tag fairly closely, with a few substitutions for items I haven't got. That's one of things I love about this challenge, you can follow Tim to the letter or you can do your own thing. Which ever path you choose it's guaranteed to be fun. It also has the added bonus of learning a great deal along the way. Many thanks to you,Tim, for hosting this brilliant challenge for yet another year !
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.
