About me

Occupation craft retailer and tutor
Location Greenfield, Saddleworth, United Kingdom
Introduction Hi, I'm Gwen - married to Martin, mum to twenty-somethings Jenny & Callum. I lead a busy life running my papercraft shop in Greenfield, Saddleworth, where I run workshops every week. I love stamping and inky stuff and paper. I think ( no I know) I have an addiction! There - I've said it. Paper, paper, paper - can't get enough of the stuff - stroke it, sniff it,play with it and yes, I do cut it up ( shock horror, I know). My shop is crammed to the rafters with it and Carol, who works for me, does an excellent job of making the walls elastic and squeezing it all in. I love experimenting and trying to come up with new ways to use things. Sometimes I succeed but I always have great fun. At home, we enjoy entertaining and when I get the chance, I really enjoy cooking. I love having people round for a nice meal and some good wine and just relaxing in good company.
