Where to start

Ok be gentle with me as I've never blogged before.  My name is Maureen. I am 55 years old. Married to Charlie for very nearly 30 years. Where have the years gone.  I am a supervisor in a coffee shop up here in Moray. I've worked there for 26 years now but hey who's counting.

I started my crafting with knitting as a kid ( taught by my father ). I moved on to counted cross stitch and really enjoyed that but found that I was getting a sore neck and head doing all the counting and concentrating.  About 6 or 7 years ago while on a holiday in The Lakes my hubby showed me a decoupage kit that was reduced to clear in Lakeland Plastics. I thought I'd give it a go and it's taken off from there. It only cost me £7 for the kit but now it cots me a whole lot more than that lol.  I love most papercrafting styles and will try anything. At the minute I am loving stamping and using promarkers. 

I am doing my first ever craft sales table at the end of next month and looking forward to that although at the minute I am struggling to decide how much to charge...
