Hopefully I will find one or two people that my blog appeals to - I don't really like talking to myself - we shall see!
As you may know I have Fibromyalgia (diagnosed in 2010) and struggle with varying combinations of pain. fatigue and depression. I had to end my nursing career as a result and went through some very low, tough times; gradually I returned to crafting as a form of therapy and I started this blog in November 2013 as a way to help me focus on the positive achievements in my life as I am a strong believer in focusing on what you want more of. This will be my 10th post and so far I have I have managed to include a new piece of work (whether it be complete or not) in each. My aim for the next year is to post at least twice a month, but not to beat myself up if I don't - it's all too easy to fall into that trap and it can start a vicious cycle.
I guess I'm a bit eclectic in my crafting style(s) - I like playing with fabrics and getting messy with inks too. I've tried my hand at stained glass making, knitting, crochet, jewellery making (last year I gained a City & Guilds Level One qualification in this) I really love all the different sorts of Mixed Media and Altered Art especially Altered Books and intend to include more of these projects as my blog progresses.
These are photos of a few of the things I have created over the last couple of years, I think the only real theme is that there is no theme at all!!
I hope you take time to have a look through my earlier posts and if you like what you see, please consider following me. Thank you
