I set up Dearest Jackdaw as a hub for all my creative endeavours. I want reach out to people and share my knowledge, creations and inspire others to try new things, so I also write a blog which contains craft tutorials and arts and craft features, amongst various other ramblings and photographs.

I love trying new things and am always, ALWAYS learning.
