Where it all started!

Arts and crafts has always been a passion of mine. Having finished college studying Fine Art and Photography I needed something to do in my free time. 
I often get ideas when i'm bored and think it's going to last..but it doesn't!
I needed something that is creative and different, this is when the idea of handmade cards came to mind!

I got the idea from Channel 4's Kirsty Homemade Britain. Embroidered cards...Light bulb goes on!
I immediately got out the sewing machine, cut a bird stencil out of paper and started sewing it onto a piece of card. It wasn't the best card I've ever made it looked like a toddler had made it. This didn't stop me making more though!
