THIS IS ME...

Hi fellow crafting friends.. I am married and have been for 18 years, we have 2 children who are 17 and 14 and getting more complicated as they get older! I love my crafting.. though mainly cardmaking, it keeps me busy and off the (high)street, apart from our local craft shop where I am a frequent visitor. I have been crafting for about 6 year, it started with putting a few cut out easter eggs on some cards for people and just grew to what it is now, I have taken over the dinning room, garage and I have the cupboard under the stairs to.. one day I hope to convert the garage into a proper craft room. We live in Leicestershire but are orginally from Exeter in Devon. We moved here after a short stint in Bedfordshire but have been here for 8 years in October, its the longest we have ever been in one place for! My husband is an aircraft engineer but I dont really share his love of metal flying machines! Just cars and crafting!

Something vintage





Another addition to the collection for the time being.



I have just joined a new website called A Vintage Affair, I recommend it to everyone that loves all that is vintage.
Anyway, it inspired me to do some crafting cause as you may have noticed it has been a bit quiet here for a while!

I have just been diagnosed with diabetes and have been told to lose weight so have been rather taken up with that at the moment and lost my momentem for crafting.. so if anyone has any tips for getting some steam up again please let me know!! At the same time if anyone has any tips for making the perfect vintage card I would also love to hear it.. I am far from this and need as many tips as possible, kind ones please!

I can't believe its the middle of September already, the kids have gone back to school and I am already counting the days to half term!
Hoping to be away then but want to lose another stone by then.. lots more visits to the gym I think is what is needed!!

I hope that everyone out there is ok and I do apologise for not keeping up with you all, please keep the emails and text coming though as I havent forgotten you.
