My Craft Room

Hi guys, I have been absent from the front end of my website for a while as I have been working on the back end of the site, as well has being on vacation. I have taken a few shots of my craft room which I will be adding to the craft room page on the site, but there is a sneak peek.

My craft room has been building over the last five years or so and as you can probably tell from my style on the website, I like a bit of vintage chic! I just love the black and white damask and it feels lush when I go in there to work. I am a real girlie girl too, so my website and my craft room do represent me.

Along the left side of the wall you will see my stash of stamp sets, including Stamping Up, Unity, Gina K, My Favourite Things, Mama Elephant etc. I have spent a fortune! I have tried many different quality stamps, and you can definitely tell when companies are not using good quality materials. This is why I wanted to save you guys buying products that you will not get the best results from and link you to great stamps. The photo is proof that I have tried many!

As you look around, you will see tools and gadgets from Copic markers to the fabulous ATG tape runner.

I just love my craft room and it makes me feel so excited and creative!


Welcome to my Linkcrafty Blog!

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!
