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!

Remembrance at One Stitch At a Time

I am a huge supporter of Remembrance.  Regardless of our thoughts on War, the fact remains generations have and continue to give their lives for us.  So we can remain safe, so we can have the freedom we have today, so we can express ourselves every single day.  Most all though for me the Poppy is a symbol of hope, that for their today we get a better tomorrow.  I also hope that it goes some way to say I can never understand what you who fight go through nor what you families deal with every single day but I am grateful, very very grateful to you all.

If you would like to join us with this Remembrance theme craft challenge please pop over to http://onestitchatatimechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/

Here is my card, I couldn't bring myself to jazz it up or do anything besides mount this beautiful image on a poem. I also put another Remembrance poem as an insert.
