Good Morning Everyone. Hope you had a great weekend.
This week over at BBTB2 we are sharing our crafty spaces with you and how we got into crafting and a little more about us.
I have always enjoyed crafting, a little of everything.
Whilst I was on maternity leave and my son was a few months old I visited a DIY shop that sold rubber stamps. I had never given them a second glance but there was a card that was 'different'.
It was heat embossed - my new obsession with papercrafting had begun!
This was 12 years ago and my cards were very simple and all my crafty goodies fitted in a small box that I could bring out and use when Ossian was sleeping. Crafting supplies were sparse and really expensive in the UK.
A few years later I bought my first sizzix die cutting machine - do you remember the red push down handle? I was a paper doll Queen!
Eventually I spotted and stalked the Babybug! The prices here were sooo expensive I never even considered buying it. But I had been a good girl and Father Christmas brought me one ...I was hooked.
A couple of years later I upgraded to the Pink Expression. Now the UK has a great range of craft and the internet has made a huge difference.
I now have my own craftroom....
Slight paper hoarder! lol.
I have the things I use most in the drawers behind me.
I love singing and dancing as I craft - see my ipod?
My cricut carts are on hand and easy to get to.
My worst ever investment - the huge paperweight that is my Imagine!
I have a walk in cupboard where I keep anything for altering, material etc.
Can you see the dog treats? Pan loves to curl up with me when I'm crafting.
Love my Vagabond!
See my amethyst crystal? I love crystals and alternative therapies and am qualified in Indian Head Masssage and Reflexology. I don't have time for these at present between family life, work and golf.
See my folder on the chair?
It holds all my metal dies. Makes it so quick and easy to find what I want.
I like it pretty !
Thank you for visiting my crafty world. We would love to see yours so do come and link a photo up over at BBTB2.
I'll be back to show you the first card I ever made!!
