"I was delighted when asked to be the Guest Designer at Make My Monday and I feel honoured to see my work amongst such talented ladies.
I'm a retired teacher with just over 23 years experience and now have time to indulge in my passion for all things inky! My favourite techniques are stamping, any kind of embossing and creating texture in my projects. I've recently ventured into altering pieces and have just finished an on-line paint techniques course run by the amazing British Artist, Andy Skinner. I love many of the Tim Holtz products but will happily improvise in the absence of supplies dictated by his work!
In addition to my paper crafting, I love to sew and embroider and in the last few years I've learnt how to knit home made socks which was something I'd always promised myself I'd have a go at. My other love is my garden but time is now stretched very thinly between all these activities! I'm Mother to one 20 year old daughter and I'm married to a very understanding man!
I look forward to sharing the beautiful projects you will all produce this month - best of all, I can visit each and everyone of you and say hello."
