About Me

Im 39 years old and work in retail as a Deputy Manager. I love to craft whether it be cardmaking or altering something. I have been crafting for almost 10 years and it helps me to relax after those busy days at work. My big aim was to blog regular and get onto a design team, now Im on 2. Very proud to have recently made Jones design team. I am godmother to 2 lovely children Matty & and Rebecca...Hope you all like what you see and thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving comments.

St Nick

I'm getting myself in the festive spirit ! 
I altered a frame for this weeks Jones crafts DT piece. I got the frame from the lovely lovely Sue, owner of the awesome crafty bunch.....not only does she run the craft shop but she is a fabulous friend too. 

I used the new Graphic 45 Papers
St Nicholas. Painted with prima paint that the lovely sue gave us at the retreat. Some fussy cutting here & there and my frame was complete. 
Thrilled with this collection that the ever so lovely & generous Darren Saxton from Jones crafts sent me...... I almost didn't want to cut it up !!!!!!
I'm very lucky to be on such wonderful design teams, and huge thanks to everyone that reads my blog. If it wasn't for you lovely people my little blog wouldn't exist. 
On that note it's time I got myself to bed, college in the morning..........
Take care & thanks for leaving comments. Have a lovely weekend xxx
