Bio: All photographs are copyright. Please ask permission before copying or using. Thank you. Hi. I am a mother of three children (although one is at university and another is about to go to university to hopefully study marine photography and natural history). My youngest daughter is surrounded by craft and art materials at home, so I guess that's why she equally enjoys making things. As well as looking after my children, I am a secondary school teacher and this is my first blog. I decided to set myself a challenge of producing a craft a day for 2014. I often join a local community thrice yearly handicraft day either as a tutor or as a participator. Handicraft sessions on these days where I have tutored include crochet workshops, wirework, papercraft, origami, batik to name a few. The next one is in February 2014 where I will be showing people how to make relief gift boxes. Apart from crafting, I am passionate about teaching; fundraising; exploring and spending time with my family. My children would like to extend the amount of pets we own, as long as they include more guinea pigs!

  1. I think it’s quite wonderful your taking on such a creative challenge. I’ll look forward to viewing more of your successes. Your daughters are lucky to have such a bright and talented mother in their corner. There’s no better decor than creative materials filling up a home. As far as the guinea pigs, my brother’s children have two because he’s allergic to dogs. The guinea pigs eat at-or really-on the table at dinner!

      1. Thank you, I’ve been getting my feet wet hopping here and there. I forgot to mention, I’m a substitute teacher-somedays can be very interesting depending on the grade and the school. And a long while ago, I was an Art Director for Prentice Hall Educational Publishers. It is quite interesting being on the other side-that is using the books I designed or directed.

        ps love your logo by the way – did you design it?

      2. Yes, teaching is an interesting career with no two days the same! I’ve also experienced both sides of the fence! In answer to your question, yes, I designed the logo albeit originally on a cafe napkin while sipping a gingerbread latte πŸ™‚ Glad you like it: the wing is a hint at my first name initial!!!

      3. I’m a huge latte fan especially pumpkin spice, mint and gingerbread around the holidays! I’m going on a limb here and I’m going to guess Jennifer, Jackie, perhpas Jasmine (latte-tea connection) maybe? Joyce, Jillian or Julia if I keep going I’ll have to bust out my old baby naming book. Your little bird makes me smile. It’s beyond lovely…
