About Me and my Craft Shed

My photo

Born in London, but been living in Leicestershire since 1988.

I have been a Showaddywaddy fan since I first saw them on New Faces in 1973, and have finally started being able to get to their concerts since December 2012, although can only get to those in the Midlands area.

I have been a crafter since I was a child, and do many varied crafts.  At present I am working on a Scrapbook documenting Showaddywaddy from their start to the present - 2013 being their 40th year.

Card for Scarlett - Great Niece :)

My Great Niece - Scarlett is 1 year old tomorrow and I worked till 1am to get this card made so it could go in the post first thing this morning.  Craft room has bits of paper all over the place - but who cares - I don't - I had fun making the lovely Beatrix Potter card.

I didn't make the card as instructed - no fun if you can't break the rules - I just used sticky pads as opposed to the card cubes, but it still makes an effective and different Birthday card.  I was also lucky enough to have some Beatrix Potter Toppers that came with one of my magazines, so Jemmima Puddleduck is inside, whilst a rear view of Peter Rabbit is on the back of the card.  Now I just hope the postal Service gets their finger out, and don't damage it in the delivery process.

Catch you all soon - more cards on their way!

Card for Mother-in-Law

I finally got the card made for Mother's Birthday for 1 June, made from work by Barbara Clooney. Whilst putting the card together I realised that in my stash of peel-offs I had some that would compliment the shape of the Tea Pot image, none left now so will have to either try and get more or create my own design and make them with my Cricut machine.

 More to come soon, as I have more cards to make for later on this month.
