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

For the benefit of those who might be wondering where I am -I'm still here, just not posting at present although something exciting did happen this week, my DH was able to wear his real shoes after eight months of swollen feet. At long last a drug combination that will get rid of all the fluid is working and he has lost two kilos in three days-yes you did read that right. We would be dancing a jig if we could but we can't so we are doing it metaphorically.
I am crafting but just don't seem able to summon up the energy to blog.
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.
