A Day for Daisies
Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This is Judi posting for you again this week! I hope you are enjoying the New Year! I love January...it's the perfect time for me to deep clean my house and purge things I don't need anymore even though I try to do that all year long.
Well, we have some exciting news this week. We would like to welcome our newest Design Team member, Holly Gwilliams. We are thrilled to have her join us and look forward to having you enjoy her inspiration.
Hello, my name is Holly and I live in Yorkshire, UK, where it generally rains and does not much else, but that gives me plenty of time to sit indoors and craft. I have been making cards for about a year now. It started as something to keep me occupied while the hubby (or fiance as he was at the time) watched football (soccer to anyone in the US) and it became a bit of an obsession, so much so that my spare room is now my craft room and I no longer have to sit at the kitchen table.
My other hobbies include sewing (I run a little business making bags and make my own dresses when I can), tap dancing, following MotoGP and reading. I also hope to start studying for my history degree later this year, as well as doing some creative craft courses at my local college, but first I need to go on my honeymoon as I got married over Christmas.
I sometimes wonder how I find time to do all this, and see my friends, as by day I am a legal secretary too.
Crafting has become my passion and I am so excited to be a DT member for SSW.
We love all of our DT and appreciate their individual creativity and all that they do to help make this blog possible for you. We couldn't do it without them!
