  • Hello All!!

    Hi to all of you,

    I make cards with my daughter - we really enjoy having something we can sit down and do together. She's only 11 but very talented, really she's the brains behind it and I just get to cut and stick stuff under instruction!

    She's done really well selling to family and friends, but now feels like "expanding her empire", and she's looking to do some fairs etc.

    I look forward to chatting to you more soon!

    Michelle

            Hmmm I don't know where I got it from then! I suppose it was my grandma and grandad, they were very frugal and were always making something.

            Welcome btw and I love hearing sories of close bonds between kids and their parents. She's doing really well for an 11 year old!

            Keep her focused though, that 'boys' age is looming!!

              Thanks everyone! Yes we've been making Easter and Mothers Day cards this week, and she's had me trailing around her at the craft store today laden down with goodies aswell!

              I do hope she keeps it up - she's quite motivated at the moment, but as you say, boys may soon begin to occupy her thoughts!

                Don't worry if she's anything like I was it only lasts 5 years then she'll come round to the rest of us way of thinking!

                I'm back to doing all of the stuff I did as a kid and I genuinly find it much more enjoyable too!

                      Hello Michelle,
                      For years I thought I had got the crafting bug from my Nan and my mum, but I was looking at a diary my mum had 'encouraged' me to keep when I was 4 and in it I discovered that it was my dad who had bought me my very first stitching kit - and I'm still at in now, 28 years later. (not the same kit though!)
                      Welcome to the forum!
