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

Just for Julia
Here's a close up which might just show the silver embossed on the vellum BTW daft slip up merchant that I am-good job I rang Yvonne to ask if she would bring a particular stamp with her, turned out we're meeting next Saturday, not yesterday. Can hear my Mum saying "HMMPH you'd forget your head if it was loose"
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.
