Introduction This blog will be a collection of ramblings, along with descriptions and photos of some of the craft stuff I've been getting up to. I love crafting - papercrafting, jewellery making, cross stitching, altered art, atc's - you name it, I'll give it a go. I guess you could describe me as being something of a craft butterfly :) I live in gorgeous West Wales, right on the coast - from my bedroom, I can look out over the sea. Home is Victorian cocklers cottage in a tiny village on top of a hill. Cockling was a huge industry here in the early part of the 20th century, there are still cockle beds locally, but generally they are harvested by pickers from Liverpool, which is a shame, but I suppose that's the way of the world these days. The other great love of my life is History, and I'm really chuffed to have been offered a place to study for an MA in Local History at Trinity College, Carmarthen. I'm so excited about it, I really can't wait for term to start. It's been a long time since I was in education, but I'm really looking forward to the chance to give my brain a bit of a workout.
