I'm Karen and have been crafting for the last few years, but it was not untill recently that I got bitten by the bug bigtime.
I am a 46 year old Essex girl, living in Kent and married to Ralph, my second husband for the last 16 years. We were never blessed with children (several miscarriages and failed IVF attempts), but are surrounded by animals, which include 8 cats, a dog and fish. I call them my babies.
I no longer work, due to ill health. I have a compacted spine and have now started to suffer with arthritus too, so some days I have a struggle to get things done.
I have 4 neices and 2 nephews, all of which I spoil (but not too much), and I have recently become a great aunt to a baby girl, Kiera, she is beautiful.
I'm a shopaholic and love to hunt down a bargain, especially craft items, which I share with my sister who has also recently started card making.
