Arts & Crafts

WHERE TO BEGIN

I have always been one to be hands on if you didn’t already know I was a tomboy in my “teen years”. I was brought up with my brothers, dad and grandad; they were all about being creative and being different.
Doing projects, building things, decorating furniture and of course big in the car scene.
My mum, on the other hand, has always been the opposite when it comes to being creative she is the most amazing knitter around, she also showed me how to sew and bake.
She is my best friend always will be!

Growing up I used to spend most the time going to my grandad’s work garage and watching him fix cars for hours and hours.
I would watch my dad create and design three beautiful homes we have lived in.
My brothers are creative my youngest was a carpenter, watching what he could make out of wood was so impressive.
My oldest brother I used to watch him for hours painting the soldiers which I still can’t get my head around!
We are a big creative family.
That’s how I got so into upcycling things I find and making them look brand sparkling new!

Another craft love of mine is scrapbooking; memories are always kept best written down then you will never forget.
Especially with the ones you love so dearly.
There are many places I get my art and craft products, charity shops are a huge place for selling bits and pieces, you have to know the right ones of course!
Another place to buy essentials is Hobby Craft, the cute little sticker packs you can get which are normally on offer EEEKK!

My favourite is the sweet vintage shabby chic style I set out to achieve, me & mumma bear are forever hunting cute old shops.
The kind of shops which are cut off from the world and only people who have an imagination can put a sparkle on something to make it look beautiful.
