Welcome back to our
'Midway Motivation' post here at
I am delighted to be back for the first time this year with our midway motivation post, and have a brand new Guest Designer for you today to give you a little motivation for our current challenge. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to Diane ...
I am a wife and mum to three grown-up children and a little grandson. I live in a small town in Mid-Wales and craft as a hobby and have been crafting as far back as I can remember. I do lots of different crafts and love trying something new - my Mum taught me to knit when I was about seven and I have recently started to teach myself crochet.
I have had Fibromyalgia for over ten years which leaves me in constant pain, but my crafting helps take my mind off the pain. Card making is my main craft and I have a craft room which I share with my husband's junk collection. His trade is a plasterer/builder, so he often brings bits home for me that people throw out. I enjoy recycling and a lot of my storage is second hand, free or re-used. I often pick up found bits and pieces for my crafting, like ribbon off clothes, washers, string, packaging - I am a bit of a hoarder!
Here's Diane's beautiful project for our current challenge 'Happy Birthday' ...
'Clarity' stamp - large Blue Tit
and 'Dreamees' flowers.
Many thanks, Diane.
So, there is still plenty of time to join us - the current challenge will close on the 16th January, and I will be back with details of our next challenge the following day.
Hugz, Jan xx
