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 I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

ONe stitch at a time flowers

Image used:

Country Girl by Barb Jenson


Products used:


Distress inks

Floral embossing folder

Floral spellbinders nestability die

Westlife song lyrics for quote

White cardstock

White copier paper


I have a connection with art journaling that helps me realx, it comes from my heart and soul.  When I saw the theme was flowers for this fortnights One Stitch at a time challenge I knew I wanted to do something that went a little beyond spring flowers or even summer flowers.  For me flowers symbolise having survived the winter and now we have not only an abundance of colour but an array of vivid green crunchy delicious vegetables to eat, plucked fresh from the newly warmed soil but the first rays of a crystal bright spring sun.  So I’ve used “country girl” by Barb Jenson, she’s coloured with promarkers.  I’ve made my green {for those crunchy green vegetables} background floral embossed and added a bright pink/purple flower as one of the first blooms in spring.  The quote is from a Westlife song, but they may have “covered” in which case I apologise I don’t know the original singer.


I will try and enter this in the following challenges:
