I was always 'making things' as a child - my dream job would have been the demonstrator on Blue Peter!
I started crafting in earnest in the year 2000 after I broke my back in an accident and needed time off work to recouperate from the operation which 'fixed' me.
My dear dad sadly lost his very brief battle with cancer on 2nd May 2008. I couldn't bring myself to make a thing for a year. Now I am slowly re-discovering the enjoyment this hobby brings.
I work in an Investment Bank but don't let that put you off! I really enjoy my job and the people I work with are great and have seen me through some very rough times.
8th August 2009 - I'm off work again, this time because of emergency surgery to remove my appendix 5 days ago. Gives me time to make some favours for my new little newphew's upcoming Baptism.
