To live is to craft and to craft is to live-plus more homely bar room philosophy from a former barmaid and library assistant

Oh oh forgot. If you've been following for a while you may remember back in the day we were expecting -------builders. It's an area improvement scheme and tomorrow they are knocking down our back wall. The outside loo is going too but will take a souvenir piccy before it's gone for those of you who would like to see how the other half lives. Don't worry there is one upstairs but no more garden visits (what garden?). DH kept telling me not to use it in case it fell on my head but my friendly roofer Michael will have to cross his legs or take his boots off now.We haven't needed his services recently but I don't like to tempt fate. He musn't retire because he's very familiar with our roof and we need him.
I am now in my sixties and despite being diagnosed with fibromyalgia several years ago I am enjoying myself more than ever because I don't care what other people think of me anymore. It's the "when I am old I will wear purple" syndrome.
Have been papercrafting for over 18 years but I've loved making things as long as I can remember. My granny taught me to knit and my Mum let me have all her leftover bits of fabric to make clothes for my dolls. My sister still has stuff I made for her Sindy doll!
Got bit by the stamping bug -you know that magic moment when the embossing powder turns into gold. Love making bags boxes and envelopes as well as cards.
