Please welcome our two new Design Team Members


I am a retired civil servant living in NE Hampshire in the UK. I have been happily engaged for 16 years to Roy, living 2 miles apart from each other! In April 2015 he contracted encephalitis which has resulted in him having a partially paralysed right hand and short term memory loss. As a result after 4 months in hospital and rehab he has had to move in with me as he cannot live on his own any more. So we have decided to finally tie the knot in October. I have three sons and two grandsons, which is why I need male cards, and will soon have a stepdaughter.

I have crafted for most of my life, starting with knitting, when I made myself a jumper from a pattern in Girl magazine. I was about 13 and we were living in Malta so I knitted with a tin of talc beside me to put on my hands when they got too hot! Later I tried crochet and dressmaking and even later machine knitting and cross stitch. I started paper crafting in 2006 when I retired. I had noticed all the paper crafting stuff at craft shows and wondered what all the fuss was about, so bought a magazine and a small kit to have a go. I still wasn't convinced but then I saw Jayne Nestorenko demoing on Create and Craft  and that was it - I was hooked!
