Where do we start? Well first and foremost, I’m a crafter, but I’m lucky enough to find myself in the enviable position of making my passion and hobby my work!
Funny thing is, I’ve no idea how I got to this point! If, ten years ago, you’d given me a crystal ball and shown me my professional and personal future (same thing by the way!), I wouldn’t have believed you! At that point, I was working full time as a trainer for a national company and although the job allowed me to create some mean flip charts and exercise my special ability of talking a lot(!), I yearned for a more creative challenge.
I left that job and decided to work for a couple of days in a local craft shop, not knowing how amazing the path ahead would be! In-store demonstrations soon became local show demonstrations and they were so popular that I was soon holding my own craft workshops!
Fast forward to the present day and as well the regular TV shows I present on Create & Craft and Ideal World, I’m still making cards and papercrafting. Oh, and for a couple of years now, I’ve been drawing my own rubber stamps!
At home, I have a VERY patient husband (and quite a wiz with the old craft tools he is too!), three cats – Harry, Ron and Hermione (can you spot a theme?), two dogs – Holly and Ginny – and last but not least, two goldfish (Nemo1 and Nemo2).
I hope that my web site inspires you as much as crafting has inspired me!
