Hiya, well there I was.....just settled down on the sofa with a coffee ready to
do a bit of blog hopping and the very first post I saw was on Jacki's blog.
Karoove has set the task/challenge to blog every day in June.....hmmmm,
now there's a challenge, sounds like just the thing I'm looking for! I'm
gonna join in and am soooo full of good intentions.....so watch this
space lol! Each daily post will have a choice of 2 prompts - word or craft.
Day 1: I'm going with the word prompt - tell us how you got into crafting.
Like so many other crafters I've "met" in blogland, cross stitch was my
first proper craft venture. I spent many a long cold Winter night
stitching coasters, bookmarks, wall hangings.....anything you could think
of until one day a friend asked if I could stitch something for a
Birthday card. And that was it.....I was hooked! I do still
cross stitch, in fact I'm just about to start a Christmas present!
Bur for now, at least, papercraft has taken over the majority of my
craft time......paper, ribbon, pearls, promarkers.....oh my, I'm sooo hooked!
I'm lucky enough to have a craft room now.......and an 11 year old
daughter who loves to craft but doesn't like to clear up afterwards!!!!
So that's my story....would love to hear yours!
Thanks for the inspiration Karoove....hope I can last all month!
