First blog hop

Well I've been involved in my very first blog hope (sort of) I looked at everyone's wonderful card designs and joined a the blogs, but for some reason I was unable to leave a comment for anyone (sorry) it just wouldn't allow me to do it.
I am now looking forward to mastering the blogging skills during next month and hopefully make some lovely cards myself to add to everyone else's, I am also looking forward to using the wonderful tsunami rose papers.

Welcome to my blog

Before I start I would just like to thank Daisy Collins as she has helped me to get this blog started - she is also the main reason it has started as I have become a member of her November Design Team, keep an eye out for her wonderful papers that I will be using throughout November. 

I am a married mum of two teenagers, a son who is 16 and a daughter who is 13, My children are the most important thing in my life. I have a wonderful husband who I have been together with since the age of 18. I am an animal lover and have a wonderful cat who is my baby called Choccy and my daughter has two lovely mini lop rabbits.

I have been studying hard for a number of years after leaving school without any qualifications, I am now in my final year of two degrees and which will enable me to teach adult education, I hope the other will lead me on to completing a masters in Art therapy so that I can deliver this as a teacher and as an Art therapist.
I started out crafting when I designed and made my own wedding stationary which I was very happy with . Since then I have made cards for friends and family, but until the past few months did not consider selling it, I have participated in a few craft fairs and the initial feedback on my products is very encouraging. I hope over the next year to enlarge the amount of products I am available to offer so if there is something you are looking for but unable to see please let me know.
One of my new outlets has been birthday cakes after completing one for my daughters 13th birthday, also party invitations.

Outside what I can offer I have links to an excellent DJ who is currently training my son, they are both wonderful with the children at disco's and provide wonderful children s and adults parties. 
My son is also studying photography as an A level and envisages taking this as a Degree in America, so if you are looking for an amateur photographer for any even please consider him, his business name is Clickclicksnap which he decided on himself.
