Still here but struggling
Thought I'd better post something before blogger kicks me out. Yes I do intend to blog but things are difficult just now as my days are taken up almost completely by caring for my lovely husband. Am still managing to make a few cards but time and energy sadly lacking and although I've got plenty of gorgeous stuff to play with I barely scratch the surface. Incidentally I heard a funny phrase recently which applies to me and probably some of you lot too -SABLE- STASH ACQUISITION BEYOND LIFE EXPECTANCY. Very tickled by that one? Hugs to all-Betty.
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.
