I'm a stay at home mum of two children , Daniel 11 and Hannah who is 9.
Life in our house can be quite stressful at times, and not a lot of
sleep either. Daniel was diagnosed at 3 years old as being severely
Autistic. He goes to a special needs school which is really good.
Hannah also has some of the traits, so you can imagine the stress at
our house, hence one of the reasons I got into crafting.
I've always enjoyed making things since I was young, at one stage I
made beanbag frogs for friends ! .I got into card making maybe 6 or 7
years ago when I decided to make all our own Christmas cards and
basically it's gone from there. Crafting for me is a way to relax and
forget the stresses of the day, also I love being able to make cards
for friends and family and see the enjoyment on their face when they
see it's handmade.
Recently I have also been decorating wooden letters for kids names,
mine both have some and for Christmas I made 7 sets for nieces and
I have also decided to try and sell them and have had a stall at some
craft fairs. Trial and error but we'll see how it goes.
In April I was also lucky enough to be picked for the UK design Team
for Kanban which I am really enjoying doing, and have made some great friends within the team.
I started my blog in March of this year and through that and Facebook and the groups on there I have made loads of friends.
As to my style of cards, I'm not sure I have a particular style, I just
enjoy using anything and will give most things a go.
This month's challenge is "Anything Goes" so here is my card . I love
these stamps and thought I'd go for a red theme as they are Christmas
