About Me

Hiya Everyone

Welcome to my blog 'Kraftyscot'. Well as you can tell by it's name and thistles, I'm from Scotland! I'm a happily married 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 and Fibromyalgia.
I enjoy all sorts of crafts, from card making, stencilling, stamping and colouring (to name a few)  I also enjoy Mixed Media as I love using many different mediums and techniques in my creations, where you can let your creative imagination loose!!

I used to run a weekly after school craft club at my son's school, quite a few years ago, which I thoroughly loved and found so rewarding. But unfortunately due to my health, I had to give it up. I still try to go to craft shows. Whilst there I love doing a workshop or two as I feel that you can pick up so much creative inspiration and fresh new ideas as they happen. Though I have now been swayed over to new technology too!.

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

Through this I became Design Team member on a few Challenge Blogs, 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 to be 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'.

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 taking the time to stop 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!

  2. My paternal family immigrated from Scotland to the USA in 1930 - way before I was born. I have visited family who are still in the "old country". What a wonderful country! (I was a highland dancer in my youth.)
