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!

At the Movies

It is Movie week over at http://ikesworldchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/ and I've made a Film Reel using lot's of images that could be from movies.  I loved making this one, it was great fun.

IT is Embossing fortnight over at http://ikesworldchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/ and I couldn't resist playing with this Dream Catcher again.

I've used gilding flakes to make the circular bit and coloured it with inks and promarkers.  The embossed part is the sun rising at the bottom of the over coloured with yellow distress inks.

Hot Colours
