I started crafting in my teens really, making old-school scrapbooks of pop stars, and learning to crochet.
About 17 years ago now, I decided to make my own Christmas cards; I bought an old-fashioned Santa rubber stamp, some inks and embossing powder, and I WAS HOOKED from then on! I ventured into scrapbooking and mixed media, and was lucky enough to join some design teams, and soon started to teach scrapbooking classes at retreats.
The one thing I love about the crafting world is the many lovely, like-minded friends I have made, and learned from. It's lovely when you teach a class and share techniques, and see how people put their own spin on things - you all learn from each other! I literally would be lost without crafting, and am always snipping, sticking, inking and hooking!
I really enjoy all papercrafts, including folding techniques, rubber stamping, making lovely scrapbook pages and cardmaking… as well as the odd MDF project and crochet blanket of course!
Cards, scrapbook pages, and crochet blankets.

Colour tones can really make a difference, and just commit - don't be scared! Do it from your heart, not because you have to… enjoy it!
