Craft ADD and other important notes........


Because this is all about me, I think it is important that you know a few things about me.

(That's me! Well my new boots actually!)

I have Craft ADD! Admitting it is the first step to recovery! I have an annoying habit of starting really great projects and then getting bored (usually close to the end) and starting on something else. I am trying to break the habit, taking inspiration from some of my good crafting buddies, I am limiting myself to 2 projects at a time. The unfortunate thing is that I think my craft ADD is rubbing off on them!! Soon I will be the completer/finisher, when all around me have succumbed to the dark side!! mwa ha ha ha! (insert evil laugh here).

I am a craftster, out and proud! And I have it engraved on my iPod to prove it! I just LURVE to crochet/knit/sew, I get that from my Mum who is the most amazing crafty lady I know. She gave me my first sewing kit to make dolls clothes when I was 6. I made use of the scissors on my sisters hair (she needed a fringe) and as she was my crash test dummy for all things odd, she willingly obliged (that is my story and I am sticking to it!).

I am from a long line of crafty men and women! My sister is fabulous, she sews, makes jewellery, and is musical. She is my guru for all things funky and cool, a constant inspiration. Then there is my Mum. She quilts, sews, embroiders, cross stitches, paints, does Folk art, tapestry, she is just amazing. My Dad is into electronics by trade, but he can pretty much make anything and is into carpentry, metalwork and gardening. Then there are various Aunts and cousins, too many to mention!

I love Meena! Or Princess Meena, as she likes to be addressed!She is my cat, the strangest, most neurotic and fearless little cat. Somedays she thinks she is human and other days she thinks she is a dog. BUT she is never just a cat!

I love my friends! I will introduce you to them all, one by one. They are fabulous, wonderful, amazing people!

And finally, I love Elvis! Again, something I have to admit to it, accept it and move on! The perfect cure for a hangover is, Salt and Vinegar chips/crisps, powerade and watching an Elvis movie (while on your couch, curtains closed!). My good crafting buddy Brown Pants, gave me some material with Elvis pictures on it, which was extra special as I know she is not a fan ( I know hard to believe, hey!).

So that is mostly me in a nutshell! ENJOY!
