About Me

Hiya Everyone

Welcome to my blog 'Kraftyscot'. Well as you can tell by the name and thistles, I'm from Scotland. Ayrshire to be precise. I'm a happily married Mum with two boys and a Craftaholic!!. I've enjoyed crafting for as long as I can remember. My first recollection was being taught how to knit and crochet amongst other things by my Mum and both Grans.

I enjoy all sorts of Craft, but mainly I love making cards, which I got back in to just after my youngest was born . And I have not looked back. It has been the best therapeutic tonic since I was diagnosed with Spinal problems, Fibromyalgia and a few other ailments thrown in the mix!
My passion at the moment is for digi stamps, which I have found so much easier for me to use, although I do still do the odd stamping and embossing.  I love to colour in, especially with my favourite Promarkers! It so takes me back to my childhood days and my large colouring books!!  

A few years ago, I ran a weekly after school craft club at my son's school, which I thoroughly loved and found so rewarding. But unfortunately had to give up due to my health. I enjoy going to craft shows, with the help of my Hubby or my Friends taking me, also attending workshops as I feel that you can pick up so much creative inspiration and fresh new ideas as they happen. Although I have been swayed over to new technology now too!.

I've had my own Facebook account for a few years now and have been able to become a member of quite a few Craft groups and joined in with a few Challenge Blogs. I have met such a lot of lovely like minded people along the way and more recently, well in fact nearly a year, have been able to further develop my creativeness by starting up my own blog.

Through this I became DT on a few Challenge Blogs, Artistic Inspirations, Crafty Girls and UK Besties, to name a few, but back in November 2013, when I managed to visit the NEC Craft Show, I was so honoured to be asked by Carley Duff, if I would like to join her fabulous Design Team, creating samples to promote Creata products that are shown on Create and Craft TV every week. For once I was speechless! ... Yes me, speechless!!. Wow I still can't believe it! I had such a fantastic time and loved being part of the DT 'Sisters'. At present I'm DT on Crafty Addicts and Delightful Digi's...

Crafting I feel, is an outlet for creativity, a way to give joy and for social connection. As I said earlier, I have met a lot of lovely like minded people along the way who have helped me in so many ways and still do!!

There is definitely much to be said about losing one's self in this world of creativity, where you can share your passion, be yourself and more to the point have so much fun doing the things you love most, whilst being part of the ever growing Crafting Community!

Thanks so much for stopping by
and hope that you decide to follow me
I also hope you enjoy my creations as much as I have enjoyed making and sharing them!
