My first query was about a technique used on a demonstration card, and that day I signed up for their course on rubber stamping to learn about it. This was when I discovered embossing! And was so long ago now I really can't remember how may years ago it was!
Over the years I have done lots of papercrafting, scrapbooking, a little bit of parchment craft, encaustic art, beading, knitting and crochet as well as the cross stitch and sewing. And I am sure a few more things I have probably forgotten along the way, with some being more successful than others :)
I am teaching myself to draw, but I don't practice nearly as much as I should. But each picture is nearly always an improvement on the last!
Then of course there is the world of digital crafting and I love it. It is a great way of combining my crafty interests with photography and writing.
This is the digital version of a card I created for a Quick Cards magazine (issue 105) competition for a travel themed card. I created it in Craft Artist using all my own photographs, elements and frames. The finished card was layered for a 3D effect, I cut out the framed photos, roses and Paris and used foam pads to mount them onto it. I was selected as one of the winners :) and won a copy of Craft Artist 2 and lots of digikits.

Since March this year I have been part of the creative team for E-scape and Scrap, an online digital crafting store.
And this month I have started to write blog posts for Real Life Scrapped and become part of Algera Designs creative team.
As you can guess I always have some sort of craft project on the go. Well actually more this two, three or four!
