Much to our horror it became apparent that our Friday nights out drinking had turned into a weekly craft club ... membership of two. Having finally accepted this guilty pleasure and discovering it’s not just us we are ready to share this with you all!
First a bit more about us.....
I'm Simi. I live with my Sidekick Dunc (I spent ages asking my friends for alternatives to boyfriend, partner, other half etc.. Sidekick was my favourite!) and our 3 year old son Malaki. We have just bought our first house. I work full time in the Substance Misuse field. I love going to gigs and festivals. And signing up for courses at our local Community Arts College. I try to do too many things at once!
To quote our Stained Glass teacher, I am “easily pleased”. I also have a ridiculously short attention span so quite often have 15,000 craft projects on the go at once. Oh and I have been known to exaggerate a teeny bit. I
I love visiting new countries and places, taking inspiration from things I see on my travels. I'm a (fairweather) gardener and even though my allotment isn't prizewinning, it keeps us supplied with potatoes!
We brainstormed what we wanted to achieve from our blog. This is what we came up with...
... to share things that have inspired us... to share what we have made and how we've done it... to introduce new ideas that we have discovered... to present talented people we know ... to motivate us to carry on making things... to link in with the wider crafting community...We’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch and leave us a comment. We are newbies so we welcome any tips or feedback from you, especially those of you more experienced in the world of blogging! J
