    I really love doing cross stitching and am now looking into doing a sewing and dress making course at college. Anyone else into anything crafty and could share ideas and tips?

    Hi,

    I'm VERY new to scrapbooking, and when I say Very New, I mean in the last 2 weeks or so. It's fabulous and really interesting and relaxing.
    Although, I don't think I know a lot about it but i'm sure i'll get more ideas as I go along.

    I saw a girl from work's book and it 'wow'ed' me :)

    ♥ LOVE ♥

    I love scrapbooking but I haven't done any since before the summer, got tangled up with my dollshouse. Maybe I should get scrapping again. I used to live near the most amazing shop for scrappers but now I've moved away and there isn't anywhere :cry:

    I don't quite understand scrapbooking. But I do occasionally make things with Fimo, string together some beads to make phone charms or danglies, and do some painting. I also make Warhammer 40K models, but I'm not sure that counts :D

    I also dabble with photography. By dabble I mean "am quite poor at" LOL.

    I've been sewing in some form for 33 years nearly. At present my crafty hobbies are: scrapping, card making, cross stitch and "proper sewing". Like to make clothes still and home furnishings sometimes.

    I have way too much crafty stuff, cardmaking and scrapbooking so paper is my downfall (and the bling you can stick on!). I also ventured into the world of Stampin' Up (loved their stuff so joined up!) so have a growing collection of even more stamps - I really could do with my own craft room as the other half is encroaching with his pc's onto my craft space!

    I'd love to have a go at making jewellery but will no doubt get told off if something else arrives :)

    jewellery is so theraputic- particularly making something from hand which needs sooo much work done to it, theres something very soothing about spending so much time sawing, forming shape, filing, filing some more, filing some more, rough polish, final polish...etc and thats before you even get onto soldering on stone settings and casting stones etc! concentrating on something so small and intricate really calms my mind. i can spend hours on a piece and not even realise. which is always good for the dieting situation, keeping busy!

    I'm a cardmaker/scrapbooker too, the stuffs taken over my house, got a big wardrobe cheap with drawers and 99.9% of my stuff lives in there now lol

    I also sew a bit and knit but there's not enough hours in the day.

    Thats good postage prices, usually because i'm in N Ireland, some craft online stores use it as an excuse to overcharge..

    Thanks
