- suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.

The world's untidyest craft room
This is my craft room. unfortunately it's also our utility room. it houses a spare fridge a freezer and a tumble dryer. There is a cupboard on the other side of the room full of books, fabric,paints, brushes and patterns. I also have scroll saw which I use for woodcraft, it's a small bedroom, (without any trace of bedroom at all!) I am in it most part of the day. If I'm not painting, I'm scrapping, or sewing, Oh and there's the sewing machine and boxes full of threads, on top of the paint/book cupboard are storage boxes full of stuffing, batting, calico, fabric scraps, lace and ribbons. Under the craft table is a chest full of paper, card, button, tools (for the woodcraft) and a folder with all my photo's ready to be used. Hanging on the shelves you see are, scissors, clamps,hot glue gun, glues, inks, tissues, a lamp, more ribbons, pencils all my punches and embelishments are stored in a two drawer plastic holdall on the right. so as you see, there is barely room for me. It's organized chaos. and it's mine and I love it.
