About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and if you are very unlucky I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

THANK YOU

This card is for a very special person who has helped me in so many ways.  She gave me a reason to craft at a time when I was considering giving it up entirely.  That craft has helped me through some very difficult times, she's also made me smile so many, many times with her kindness, generosity and most of all by encouraging me to be creatively free.  I owe you a debt of gratitude and much much more...THANK YOU IKE!

I had originally planned to do some sneaking and ask around so I could actually post this but it felt wrong, I'm not good at sneaking and felt really uncomfortable about it so I'm posting it here for you to see.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is about being thankful, for families, for health and for me it's about being thankful for nature so as it's Thanksgiving at Ike's World Challenges I created a fridge magnet and wrote a quote about my thankfulness for nature.

My quote reads:

Nature lends a whispering ear
to surround my fears in calm serenity
It's delicate earthly colours sooth my soul
Leaving body and soul at peace



I now realise I should probably have searched the net for a quote opps!

Buttons and Bows

It is Buttons and Bows fortnight at:  http://onestitchatatimechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/

This is a hard one for me, I tend not to use ribbon or buttons,  Both make postage awkward and expensive but I fell in love with these quotes and thought buttons would work just as well as a few dots of liquid pearl.


The card above is the wrong way around because I failed to use GIMP to rotate it!
