About

I opened this shop in 2011 but did very little with it, daunted by Etsy`s size..
I re-opened it in January 2012 determined to fill it and find my way round Etsy.

I taught myself to crochet as a child from a booklet and my grandmother taught me to knit. I learned to sew at school although it has never been a great love of mine.
I don`t follow patterns, I get an idea and make it. It often becomes very different to the original idea in the making.
More recently I learned to needle felt and totally love it. I love making pictures and it constantly evolves as I learn to do more intricate designs with it. I then turn these works of art into Needle cases or books and pincushions, with new ideas and uses coming along all the time.
I have always felt that just because something is practical, there is no reason why it can`t also be beautiful…

I enjoy painting and love to paint ACEO`s using mainly watercolours and artists pens.
I have united my love of words with art to make Inspirational art too.
I love creating beautiful things and learning new crafts to expand my knowledge and my creations.
I hope you enjoy my crafts as much as I enjoy making them.
