Hello, I'm flying the flag for Scottish crafters as I live in the Scottish Borders. Much as I love it here its sorely lacking in local craft shops and we miss all the excitement of workshops, craft fairs and demos by the elite of  this industry.

I have always had an interest in arty, crafty things since I was a child when I was never seen without a pencil and sketchpad. I've dabbled in all the usual knitting, crochet, cake decorating, cross stitch, photography, watercolour painting etc and finally about six years ago I was introduced to card making.

Now that really opened up a whole new world of creativity for me, which I love, so many new techniques to try and master. At the moment it's stamping I'm having fun experimenting with, but I have tried Parchment work, which is so beautiful and delicate. Quilling very fiddly! Decoupage and lots more, the list is endless.

It's all so much fun and a great way to escape from lives dilemmas. I hope you enjoy your crafting journey as much as I do.
