About Me! I am a wife, a mother of two and a grandmother of four. My craft is an ongoing lesson and it continually amazes me that there is still so much untapped knowledge I have yet to find. I love making accessories that are pretty and practical and see no reason why we can`t have both. I enjoy trying out new ways of crocheting that I often discover by accident and think, oh yes, that works as a stitch. I am often making one item when I think, now why can`t I use that element, but add that too and make something completely different. I just love this work. I DO WHAT I LOVE AND LOVE WHAT I DO MAKING WONDERFUL CREATIONS FOR YOU. This is a little phrase I coined early on because it so adequately described what I do and how I feel about it. I enjoy knitting, but crochet is my main love and if I travel anywhere, it goes with me. I started writing patterns for others because I find many patterns seem overly complicated with long lists of abbreviations and lot`s of stitch counting. My patterns are more straightforward, with instructions, pictures and NO abbreviations. I learnt to needle felt and made textile art pictures that I turned into sewing accessories, once again turning the beautiful to practical use. From there I learnt to make needle felted sculptures. I love a challenge and though it is a lengthy process it`s wonderful to see my idea turn into reality and the picture in my head emerge from the mass of wool. I love art and spent time watercolour painting for the sheer pleasure of it. I discovered ACEOs and I also discovered that painting or drawing such small pictures (3.5" x 2.5") had many challenges. I enjoyed painting and selling them for quite a while and from there I moved on to painting bigger pictures and decided to put my art together with my love of words. I add my own sayings/quotes and verses to prints of my artwork to make Inspirational art. From there I moved to making children`s bright personalised art for playroom, nursery and bedroom because I think it is important for children to develop their imaginations. Without imagination there will be no innovators or inventors of the future. I also added a line of fun word art because fun and humour are very important parts of life.
