Yes! As I child I remember always being covered in paint or drawing pictures for the fridge at home, then my Nan taught me to knit and also embroider. At high school I took Art GSCE and loved it, I still have some of my work!
I remember after my Nan had taught me to knit I wanted to make a scarf for my Grandad, she got all the yarn for me and I got started but I made it really wide and it was taking me ages. In the end my Nan had to finish it so I could give it to him for his birthday!
I always wanted to be a teacher, me and my friends used to pretend and we would have a register and tick everybody in at the beginning of class!
When I started working for Hunkydory I had no idea that cardmaking was an actual hobby that people had, I remember going for my interview 13 years ago and just feeling like a kid in a toy shop. I wanted to work there immediately and luckily that evening I was offered the job! Since then I have progressed through the company and I am now the Creative Manager and I love my job.
I really enjoy soft crafts such as sewing, crochet and knitting. I am currently working through all the animals from one of Kerry Lord’s book for my son and my husband bought me a sewing machine for my birthday so I want to make more dresses.
It would have to be the Adorable Scorable! I use it every day within my crafting and I honestly don’t know what I’d do without it! It revolutionised the crafting world and gave crafters the confidence to make fantastic cards without having to worry about the cardstock cracking or feathering.
I have all the materials to keep me crafting for a few days!
This is more of a personal thing but I had a bit of a mental checklist that I wanted completed by the time I was 30 (I’m 33 now!). I wanted to own my own home, own a car, have a job that I loved, marry my best friend and have a baby; I managed it all with 5 months to spare!
It has to be being personally nominated at the International Craft Awards. Winning Best Overall Designer or Favourite Craft Celebrity would be a dream come true!
Take photos of all your makes and don’t be too harsh on yourself! It’s easy to be critical of your own work but keep photos of all you previous makes and always look back at how far you have progressed. We all have to start somewhere!
