  • Morning all - just saying hi!

    And yes, it really is 1.22am - you'll find I'm often up at silly hours posting on forums. Joys of insomnia

    Well, I've just joined the forum tonight, although I have been in the Crafts Directory for a bit.

    I'm Babs, a thirty-something wife and Mum to 2 boys (7 and 4 - often referred to as the Dynamic Duo). I've been 'crafty' for as long as I can remember - some would say I was born with a pencil and paper in my hand OUCH!! Although I have to say that I am crafty, and definitely NOT arty! Can't draw for toffee

    My main crafts are cardmaking and scrapbooking - I used to cross stitch but have arthritis now which makes it a bit difficult. As well as working on my own scrapbooks - with two kids you'll understand how busy that can keep me - I also teach and run weekend retreats, which I LOVE. I enjoy giving something back to the craft!

    Outside of crafting, I'm involved with a local Scout Water Activities Centre in London's Docklands, and am a retired member of the Queen Scout Working Party - anyone involved with Scouting will know what that's all about, but basically the QSWP help run awards ceremonies and other scouting events.

    Oh yeah - and if you haven't already guessed I LOVE TO CHAT!!!!! So, I'm really looking forward to being part of the forum!
    Love 'n' Stuff

        Hi Babs and to the forum!

        I used to be a 'night owl' myself but I think old age and holding down 3 jobs made me into one of those 'I love my bed' types .

                and from me too!
                I'm a bit of a night owl as well1 too many years of having done night shifts I suppose!
                trouble is with being a night owl, is that then nothing gets done in the day time!
