About me

Industry Arts
Location County Durham, United Kingdom
Introduction I have been making cards and "having a go" at other crafts for as long as I can remember, with much encouragement from family and friends. The main focus of my work is handmade cards and scrapbooks. I enjoy creating a card unique to someone and I still think there's a lot to be said for receiving something through the letter box, more-so if it's an unexpected surprise or thank you, it's nice to feel extra special and appreciated once in a while. My techniques include decoupage, die-cuts, embellishments, pressed flowers, rubber stamping, glass and silk painting. I am trying to teach myself sewing and knitting too and there’s always something new to learn - so watch this space...... I have worked as a children and young people's librarian; a toy librarian; a Bookstart officer ; and an extended services co-ordinator for a cluster of primary schools and would love to develop Bugged Designs further to include sessions for children and families as well as resources to use at home. At the time of writing, (March 2011) I am taking the first steps in running Bugged Designs as a business - wish me luck!!
