It's a rather wet and dismal morning here and I should be getting ready for work but just wanted to post a quick picture of my chaotic desk as it remains after an afternoon of crafting. Why am I showing this chaos to the world? because it's time for the 206th episode of Whats On Your Work(desk/space) Wednesday or WOYWW as it is known throughout the world. It's hosted by the lovely Julia over at her Stamping Ground blog so nip over there and join in the fun. I've been working on a couple of projects to be blogged later so there's lots of stuff on my table. I should at this point say that the table is about 7ft long and the rest of it is similarly covered. Well I like a bit of creative chaos. Happy WOYWW everyone 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.
