Where did the last week go? Well wherever it went it's Wednesday again and time for another What's On Your Work (desk/space) Wednesdayotherwise jnown as WOYWW. For further details of how to show off your work space to the world, hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground Blog and join in, it's a lot of fun. My table has had a bit of crafty action recently, as those of us in the UK were treated to a long weekend and I spent at least one whole day in my attic room. I felt a bit guilty as the weather has been gorgeous and I really should have been in the garden, still with the extra day off work I was able to spend Monday outside and lovely it was too. I've been having a play with a set of Stamp Smith stamps, they are the photo-realistic kind and the technique for getting a really good clear image needs a bit of practice, so there are several 'not quite right' images on my table. I've been making a tag using lots of vintaging and distress, which is right up my street, I'll be blogging that later, the tags you can see today are the 'mop ups'. So have a mooch and see what else you can spot .By the way, the rather inky cloth on the right hand side is part of my efforts to save the planet and stop using baby wipes. Just a small token I know but you've got to start somewhere.Happy WOYWW x
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
