        Just having a look to see if anyone is "local"- it can seem rather lonely in my little corner of the world sometimes!!!

        I am origianlly from SE London but have lived in Kent for about 20 years now. I knit but most of my crafty time now is spent papercrafting!

          I'm in Derbyshire, quite near to Derby actually, though I'm origionally from America, I grew up just north of San Fransico. I like to paint, knit (often rather badly as I am completly rubbish at patterns), make beaded jewellery, and sketch.

            I'm from Sheffield plus some student and post-student years in Leeds.

            I currently make jewellery and cards and other things that pop into my head and I'm always wanting to learn more so if anyone has any really good tips on bookbinding, metalsmithing, photography, soapmaking, etc etc - be sure to pass them on!

              Where are you all from

              I'm a jewellery and card maker and I live in Otley West Yorkshire and I have just discovered this forum.

              I work full time so don't do as much as I would like but do sell jewellery and jewellery greetings cards for International Charities.

                  I teach and demonstrate sugar craft, modeling with sugarpaste (fondant). I'm a cake maker and decorator and a part-time carer to a young man with complex special needs. I used to do scrapbooking and have so many tools, stickers, punches etc but sadly have very little time to keep this hobby up now. I hope to get back to it at some point though.

                    I was bought up in kent - Tonbridge, then moved to ashford. My fella is from essex but was living in gloucester when we met, we moved to gloucester when we had our little boy. I dont get down to kent much anymore, once or twice a year to visit the family! i wouldnt move back again, but I have quite a nostalgic feeling each time i'm driving down on the m20 to see my family!!

                    Sometimes what we say is not what we mean & what we mean is not what we say - that's why I paint!

                    • Sunny Somerset - well it is today! On the levels to be accurate, we rent a farm cottage and are surrounded by glorious countryside.

                      For the last five years or so I have been painting and selling on eBay and recently started making dolls house furniture (most of my paintings are miniatures for the dolls house market) and am now really thinking about getting involved in organanising some local art and crafts fairs.

                      Remember a long road is best travelled with plenty of breaks.

                      Even the best of us make mistakes!

                            I've lived in Derbyshire & Leicestershire.

                            It's not a bad place, but there's so much more to see ......
                            Life's not a race, do take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over.
