Hi all, great idea to have this forum hoping to learn heaps off you guys as a am a noob :P
I started crafting in feb this year doing the usual cards, then made sweetie bouquets and then started decorating candles. But i was really itching to make jewellery, both silverwork and beading and finally plucked up the courage to enrol in my local college for a Jewellery Making and & Design course, in which i have just completed my first term and i am itching to get back in september. I bomarded my tutor with questions in the last couple of weeks so that i would be able to do stuff at home whilst the summer holidays were going, and i am loving every minute.
I am a mum of 3 boys, the eldest sadly passed away in 2000 aged 13 years, but his younger brothers are growing up fast, turning 18 and 15 at the end of the year respectively. I am waiting for the elder one to move out so that i can have his bedroom for a proper crafting room lol.
I have been married for 26 years and my faithful German Shepherd - Buster, is normally by my side wherever i go.
I think thats enough waffle from me for now, as i want to read more from you guys on techniques etc. :p
