I am an avid crafter and have been for many years. I became totally hooked about 15 years ago. I especially enjoy card making and scrapbooking, but dabble in many other crafts as the fancy takes me and I love trying new ideas and techniques.I get together and craft with my daughter (Jacksmummy) and small grandson, who loves to craft too, but a small group of special friends gather here about once a month for a serious session. My daughter and I run workshops covering a variety of techniques, for card making and scrapbooking, both for a local craft shop and at home.I had a small Jack Russell who we lost aged 15 1/2 in 2012. My crazy cat is now 18, and they, along with my family regularly appear in my scrapbook pages.
