Today’s featured crafter submission came with a special little message:
Couldn’t have said it better myself 😉
I Once was nearly hit by lightening as a child! yet still love Thunder storms and standing in the rain x
I live on the 13th floor but hate heights !
My flavourite colour is purple x
I wish for love But have not found it! x
What got you started crafting?
Between chasing around after my older brother and sisters and constantly being told to go home !
I quickly realised I enjoyed it there much more as I could watch my mum who could draw amazing nature pictures herself ....
I could draw & craft to my heart content, In fact some of best memories are of those times
me & mum were covered in glue and glitter x
I loved to draw and hoped one day to be able to do this very thing for a living!
I have spent everyday since trying to be the best I can be x
Going on to becoming an illustrator working for a company in the greetings card & gift industry.
What is your source of inspiration?
I could never named just one thing that inspires me! there are too many
I love bright bold colours + patterns and love cath kidson/ amy butler

Why are handmade crafts important to you?
I have never stuck to a particular style of drawing
I can and do draw in different styles all the time,I find it paids to be open to this so your work
appeals to more people.
like wise I love drawing,painting but also have had I go at every craft out there!
and can make textile items, jewelery.
Why BUY Handmade
Handmade items are often unique! one never the same as the other!
plus each item have been made with love by a craftsman getting pleasure creating each & every single item.
The questions is WHY NOT! X
