Hi guys, welcome to my Linkcrafty blog!
My name is Cheryl and I have been working as a nurse since 1995. I graduated and worked in the UK for a number of years but in 2006, we moved to Canada. Currently, I work full time and in my spare time, I craft.
Two of my greatest accomplishments are my wonderful children who have also blessed me with three grandsons. Proudly, I can say that I have dual citizenship now between the UK and Canada and I feel privileged to have been able to achieve this in my life.
Creating has always been a passion of mine, from winning an art competition at school, always being in the school plays and choosing all creative subjects when possible like art, sewing and cookery. As my children were growing up you would often find me at my sewing machine making cushion covers and curtains. Unfortunately, I also made some interesting dresses for my eldest daughter to wear!
Paper crafts isa true joy to me and I feel at ‘home’ in my craft room. Colours, paper, glue, cutting, mediums and stamping….anything that involves creating with paper and card stock just makes me feel great. I am sure that I am not the only one who sees patterned paper and colours and gets all excited, right?
Once in my craft room, I don’t want to leave and its not unusual for me to lose all sense of time and get fed and watered through the railings by my husband, ha, ha.
There is one thing that puzzles me though, how is anyone able to create something in a tidy, orderly fashion? I find that impossible!
I love organization too and friends often comment on the way my craft room is set up. Though when I get the mojo and start to pull things out of the drawers, my craft room can look like the burglars have paid a visit!
I hope you enjoy visiting my website and having a read of my blog. Hopefully you will find it inspiring and it encourages you to dip your toe into something fun. Who knows, I may even introduce you to my adorable dogs, Molly and Sasha!
Remember………….if you think crafty, link crafty!
