I started making cards in my early twenties (over 20 years ago), and along the way was blessed with hubby and 5 children (one at a time).
With 5 children under 6 and no family support in Sydney, I had little time for crafting, but I began a habit of setting aside Friday nights for ME and my crafting addiction.
If I waited till I had free time it would never happen, but as much as possible I had to make myself a priority, at least once a week.
I find crafting & creativity very therapeutic!!
Less than two years ago my hobby transitioned to business, so basically now I get to stay home and play all day.
I also love recycling and upcycling, and this features in a lot of my cards.
As well as making what inspires me, I do custom orders for personal or corporate.
