Craft is something that belongs to you in a way that nothing else does. You may share your passion with someone else, and provide inspiration for each other, but at it's very core it is a private joy that feeds your soul. It is there for you on the sunny days, the rainy afternoons and in the middle of the night when your worries are keeping you awake. At the same time it can be restful, meditative and exciting.

Making a card to order

I have now found out that this is much harder than I thought.  All I was asked was could I please make an owl card and I was given a rough idea of colour and preferences.  I thought that it would be so easy!  I love owls, I love the decorative papers and bling that I chose.  But it was HARD.  Really hard!  I played around for ages with the layout, the embellishments and felt hampered by the fact that the owl stamps that I have are all quite small and they didn't seem to want to be the focus of a card.  I am happy with the card I finished up with, and hope that the recipient liked it =^..^=
