About Me

My photo
I currently live in Birmingham and come from Solihull. I have a love of all things crafty, developed from my mom's love of crafts as I was growing up. I currently work in marketing, but I'm a qualified Aromatherapist, and use to be self employed alongside a day job, might one day return to that. I try to fit in crafts when I can, I wish I had more time and money to spend on it! I enjoy researching my family history and finding out about the past. It can get frustrating, but is really rewarding when you have a break through! I hope to meet people with similar interests as me and swap advice/stories.

Make Do and Create

Well it's one of those things you always say 'I'll use up what I have first' and then you go and buy yet more craft bits! Now I can't promise I won't be buying more, but I plan to use some of this craft stash to create and may be sell on my supplies that I have just never touched!

I was encouraged when I saw http://deezkatz.blogspot.com/2012/03/ideas.html blog about having so many ideas, loving lots of crafts and yet not getting around to using all those craft bits and bobs we all build up. Funnily I am in the middle of organising myself- I even brought some storage boxes:

One box is half organised with fabric/sewing bits, the other is yet to be looked at!  (bad photos due to my camera battery dying!)

Here's a few of the bits I still need to sort. My jewellery box...lots of beads!

More jewellery- some vintage pieces in there somewhere!

Originally all my craft bits fitted into this one cupboard...not anymore!!

So I do plan to work my way through creating with the items I already have and really looking at what bits I honestly think I won't use so I'll be looking to sell them on so keep an eye out for beads, fabrics, embellishments, possibly paints/glass paints and more!!
