I am called Jackie and I live just outside Southampton with my very patient husband Keith. Our one daughter is all grown up and has left home to live nearer to her job.
I have crafted one way or another for as long as I can remember. About eight years ago I noticed that some people were making handmade cards, especially at Christmas, and I decided to have a try at this myself. Since then I haven’t looked back and the house is now full of my crafty stash. Stamping and die-cutting are a passion of mine and I have many stamps and dies. I have applied my card making skills to scrap booking some of our memorable family moments it is a wonderful way to treasure a memory. Just recently I have started using digital images and I am honing my colouring skills. I started blogging about a year and half ago and this has opened up many opportunities for me. I am thrilled to be designing for the Crafty Addicts Challenge Blog.
Next up we have Helen
Hi I'm Helen Haines. I live in the UK with my golf fanatic husband and soppy dog.
I've been crafting for more years than I care to remember and like many started with cross-stitch. I am now an avid paper-crafter and love to colour using alcohol markers, pencils and distress inks. If it doesn't move I'll colour it! I like to create my own backgrounds but can't resist all those beautiful papers and dies out there.
I also like to knit and have recently learnt to crochet and do rag rugging. I even made a rag rug Christmas tree and wreath last year. I love to learn new techniques for crafting of any description and love mixed media. I had a go at Fimo once, needless to say slight disaster making a little Alice in Wonderland who looks more like a bumper car. I keep her for reference, must practice!!
Wow ladies thank you so much, I am so glad you are part of my team. Please pop back next week, when I will introduce two more designers to you
