About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job. Well I hope you like what you see on my blog. I'm always grateful for people taking a peek and leaving messages x

Workshop photos

Hello and a warm welcome to my blog. Remember I'm giving away a super blog candy when I reach 75 followers. This includes a special graphic 45 pack !! So spread the word !
Anyway last Sunday I had the most amazing craft day at Crafty bunch ! The lovely Pauline Wheeler was there to teach  as what can only be described as a masterpiece !! Me and my bestie Maria loved it....
Here's what we made 

I added a black & white photo from my wedding last year and personalised it with names & dates etc. Amazing mixed media fun. 

Here's a photo : sue the brilliant owner of crafty bunch ( how she puts up with us all I'll never know ), me in the middle and then the lovely Pauline. She will be appearing on Create & craft from next month - so be on the lookout. 
Can't wait until October as Sue has organised a craft retreat weekend where Pauline will be teaching and so will the fab Hels Sheridan. Exciting !! Not sure Sue ever stops organising for us all !! But I would like to say a massive thanks to her for everything she does, not sure if she reads my blog !!
Anyway enough of me going on , hope you have all had a great weekend, thanks for looking it's always appreciated xx
