Hello and welcome

Hi all and welcome to my blog. This is my first posting so I thought I would take some time to tell you a bit about me and what I do. I' curently at university doing a maths degree so my crafting is a welcome distraction from number crunching. I first took up cross stitching as a kid at school but only got back into it during the summer of 2009, since then I have joined the online crafting comunity through craftbubble (link below) and i have attendend a craft fair which got me involved in card making, and more recently scrapbooking. I will post my pictures of my cards that I have made so far this year. My new years resolution this year is to do more for charity so I am making cards for DoCrafts Craft for Life campain in aid of Cancer research.

Anyway speak soon
