You think its just a hobby
I tell you that its more
You tell me its taking over
That I am always buying more
I tell you it is my passion
Something that I love
You tell me you will try it
So I give you a little shove
Before you know it you’re crafting
You are hooked as well
So we double up on craft supplies
I’m thinking isn’t this swell!

Those of you who know me will know that along side being a mum, running my business and designing i also write (yes i know, nothing like keeping busy!). I don't often share my fiction or poetry writing but as I am now back at university studying creative writing i thought i better get used to sharing my work.
What better day to start than national poetry day!
This is a poem i wrote a few years ago, please do feel free to leave feedback as i need to develop my writing skills i welcome all constructive feedback.
Promised me forever
You promised me forever
You said you’d never leave
I let you in my heart
In you I would always believe
You told me we’d always be together
I took your words as truth
Yet the damage has been done now
I hold in my hands the proof
Its hard to understand why this has happened
Did I do something wrong?
My family tell me I’ll be just fine,
That I have always been strong
They don’t really know me though
They know nothing of my heart
I struggled with life before you
Before you became a permanent part
I need you to be beside me
I need you to hold my hand
I need you to listen
No one else will understand
I don’t know why you left me
I wish you could come home
But I know where you are is peaceful
I’ll forever watch the skies where you roam
I am really getting into stamping now and as well as using new stamps i have been going through my old wooden stamps and bring them back out to experiment with. I can across this beautiful garden themed stamp which was perfect for a relative who is a garden enthusiast. I kept the card simple colouring it with my Faber Castell artist pencils.
I have been testing out the new Wellington Bear christmas range. The images are
so beautiful that they need very little adding to create lovely pretty simple christmas cards.
*The images i have used here are from the 'Ultimate die cut and paper pack'
This simple but beautiful card is easy to make and can be used for a variety of different
Santoro Gorjuss 6x6 card pack
Papermania paper flowers (large)
Santoro Gorjuss charms pack
Papermania Skelington leaves (Brights)
Arrange 3 paper flowers to the centre of the card, once happy apply a generous amount of glue under the flowers. After a few moments tuck in you selected skeleton leaves so that they reach the glue under the flowers. Leave to dry.
Once dry add gems from your charm pack to the centre of the flowers.
Ta Da, a simple but beautiful card!
