Grow Your Blog

I am so excited to be taking part in the “Grow your blog” event, squeezing an entry in at the last knockings!

Who am I?

I am a Mum, wife, housewife, team leader, christian, daughter, sister, aunty…. I live in Norwich UK with my family.

Why do I blog?

I started blogging 18 months ago due to advice to do so to drive traffic to my Etsy shop. Why do I blog now? because I LOVE it! Blogging gives me a great focus to creating and making. I blog twice a week, often with a focus on sewing and upcycling. Blogging has opened up a whole new world to me, internet friendships and finding some very inspiring fellow bloggers.

I enjoy playing with fabric, collected from rather too frequent visits to charity shops. Former garments appeal, I love the fact I am upcycling, the challenges it brings (a seam where you don’t want one, adapting your plans for what you are making as there is just not quite enough!) plus the cost enables me to play with ideas:)

Playing with creating my own designs, blogging, learning social media skills all stretch me, and help keep me sane!

 

here are some of my recent makes:)

Wow I love my visit. Didn't realize that there is so much going on in cyber world. Forgive me for coming to the party at the last minute, But 600 blog reading was a little tasking. I wanted to read and get to know the girls so I did read everyone's bio. Your my 527 blog and 24 hours left to go. I believe inspiration comes from all facets of life even knowing the great people out there with wisdom and knowledge the do's and don'ts and even the wonders of life from a personal point of view. I liked you following you on goggle connect and Bloglovin you. hope to see you in the cyber neighborhood I am new to blogging so I don't have a lot posted because I got side tract with GYB party. Kind of felt it was important to have some one read my silly chatter. I can't remember a time I didn't dabble in something creative. I tried a little of everything. But, my new love these days is Card making I just love it.
