I live in Spalding in Lincolnshire (UK). I am married to my soul mate Nick ( who likes to joke about how much each of my cards have cost me to make) & have had 2 children. Holly who is a beautiful daughter but has a temper to match her red hair. Unfotunately her sister Ashleigh died in Dec 07 aged 3 weeks from a rare liver disease & heart problems. She is always in our thoughts & missed by all of us.
I've been crafting now for about 2 years. I am also trying scrapbooking!! I have made many friends through craft & hope to make many more. I also work as a Special Needs 1-2-1 teaching assistant at my daughters primary school so my crafting is my break from the real world...
Holly and I have had a go at making some simple trick or treat bags. She enjoyed making these and is excited about giving them away. (Anything to stop the holiday blues and the constant I'm bored comments.) Although after yesterday where we did pumpkin carving and then my craft goodies were attacked by 3 children...... we'll lets just say my blood pressure is now normal but spent along time cleaning stamps and tidying up after them!!!( I'm very particular about my stamps being cleaned after being used lets just say that didn't happen yesterday.)
We used orange paper and my inkadinkado All Hallows Eve stamp set. I'm sure the children will be more intereted in the goodies inside hence that's why we didn't spend to long on them. See you all soon Nicky & Holly.
