The theme at gingersnap this week is charms. I decided I wanted to make a charm rather than use a charm. at first I was going to make a mobile phone charm, but then I decided to make a book charm. After all I always have a book with me, so why shouldn't that get a charm. of course it's just a book mark really, but a fancy one! I used shrink plastic cut with a spellbinder die, stamped a rogue redhead stamp, and coloured with colour soft pencils before shrinking. The beads were from an old necklace and the embroidery threads were from when I used to do cross stitch. They were just plaited. really easy!
I am happily married with two wonderful sons. I work full-time as a radiographer. I like to make stuff. Cardmaking, knitting, crochet. I'll try anything crafty.I also have an unhealthy love of maths: I did a degree for fun.
I post on my blog in the hope that I will inspire others to create. I am more than happy for you to be inspired by anything I post, and make it your own. Likewise, I get inspiration from all sorts of sources including the blogs of other crafters, although I would never knowingly directly copy another's work I visit so many blogs I pick up inspiration all over the place. Please know that if you are in my blog lists then you inspire me.
