Fresh From My Writing Desk: A Little About Me
I'm Marie and I'm an adult craftaholic. Crafts, gardening and coffee are my biggest addictions in life. I absolutely need to get my creative fix which I'm now sharing here with you in the hope that I can spread the fun!
Working from home allows me to be on hand to carry out my parenting duties. I work as a freelance writer online and have many different websites that I write on. I mainly write about crafts, gardening and many seasonal topics. Writing and creating is the perfect mix.
I've made plenty of tutorials on popular crafts but I never run short of inspiration to make more because there's always something different to try and new techniques to learn.
My Favorite and Most Used Social Media Sites
I'm no social media junkie because I'd rather be writing or crafting. But that said, I enjoy the occasional browse on Twitter and Google +. Pinterest is a site I definitely find rather addictive.
My Crafting Experience
I was taught how to knit and sew by hand as a young child and I've been hooked on crafts ever since. I still have knitting needles and embroidery floss in my sewing box which were passed all the way down from my grandmother who I sadly never met. But I love the fact that I own some nostalgic pieces that have helped to shape the person I am today.
There's definitely a core set of crafts which I just love to do but really I'm an all-rounder. I can turn my hand to many different techniques whether it's yarn crafts such as crochet, fabric, felt, beads, paint, paper, glue or something else.
Paper crafts are a real biggie for me and I collect paper like some people collect clothes and probably with an even bigger fixation. I'm also passionate about fused Perler beads and small hand stitched creations with felt and fabric. If it's cute, pretty and fun, I want to make it.
What You Can Expect
This website is mostly about adult crafting and gardening. Kid crafts and activities are great and, as a parent myself, I do my fair share of those too. However, I do get so sick and tired of hunting and sifting through tutorials and projects online aimed at preschoolers and younger children. There's just so many of them.
My normal week includes unhealthy amounts of time sat in front of a computer writing. I like to spend my mornings in the garden. Crafting happens more in the winter when there is plenty of time indoors out of the cold.
I love my rather simple but colorful crafty life with a passion, and it is a real privilege to share a little slice of that with you. Thanks for stopping by and please bookmark this site so you can come again and catch up with what I’m doing all year round.
