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.

Making Cards for PDSA

Hi everyone,

I am preparing to make a large batch of cards for the PDSA Shop in Leicester City.  I have had animals treated at their Leicester Animal Hospital in the past, and today we collected my Mother-in-Laws cat China from them.  She had been with them since Friday, when she was admitted in a very poorly condition.  It was touch and go for a few hours to say the least, but we saw a vast improvement in China today when we collected her.

I will be going through all my stored decoupage sheets and all my vast collection of CD that I have collected over a long period of time, and hope to make a lot of cards that I can take in to the shop so that they can make more money to help keep the Animal Hospital going.  It's going to be a lengthy process, but well worth the effort in the end.  I will try to remember to scan them when they are complete and put them on here for everyone to see.  

Before anyone asks, I am only making and delivering the cards, and will have nothing to do with the sale of them, all sales of the cards will be done by the Leicester PDSA Shop, and all money they collect will be for the sole use of Leicester PDSA.

Satin Squares packs from Poundland

I recently bought 2 packets of Satin squares in Poundland, but not sure how they can be incorporated into card making, so I am adding the images here, and if you have any idea's please feel free to share with me your thoughts on this.

I look forward to hearing any comment or suggestions.

Keep on thinking outside of the box.
