About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and if you are very unlucky I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

White on White

The challenge over at International Art & Soul this fortnight is White on White.  Anyone who knows me knows this is a nightmare of a challenge for me. I hate white on white or white anything because I struggle to keep anything clean and white.  I was very grateful when someone suggested I could make snowballs instead of paper crafting. 

I love these, they taste really nice which surprised me as I am not a fan of coconut.  I'm afraid that taking photos proved tricky but I hope I have managed to catch the crucial moment of white on white.

Happy New Year

Happy New year everyone.  I don't really have that much to write this year.  I'm not doing resolutions of any kind and I fully intend to just enjoy and make the most of the year as best as I can.  I am going to share with you a little card I made over the festive period with a new set of Hobby Art stamps.  I have used the Poppy.

I am also going to share a 12 days of Christmas song variation.  I saw on the Carers UK facebook page about how they were encouraging carers to document their Christmas in the form of the 12 days of Christmas song.  There are no partridge in a pear trees or leaping Lords and definitely no ladies dancing in my Christmas but there is some unusual things.

Altered art and Merry Christmas

This will be a quick post and I want to start it by wishing you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.  I hope 2018 is all you want and more.  This will be my last post this year and I look forward to seeing you all in 2018 with what I hope is exciting new projects.

I had an easel once upon a time many moons ago but I have no idea where it went so I bought myself a new one and this time I have decided that I will alter it from plain wood this time.  So I painted a thing layer of gesso on and then used distressed oxide inks on it.
