Crafting all over the world!

After a lengthy stint travelling round the world, I’m back in Blighty and very excited to share with you all my discoveries!

They say that travel broadens the mind, and that time away from reality teaches you what you really love in life. I’m pleased (and not at all surprised) that my love for design and making has only grown over the last year. Seeing how important arts and crafts and manufacture are in hundreds of tiny communities made me feel like we are actually part of something rather important. Art is a way of expressing yourself, making others stop and think, and decorating the world around us. Design is a problem solver and a life enhancer, at all levels. Crafts give everyone a chance to take enjoyment in creating.

Over the coming months, I will be blogging about some of the wonderful things I have seen, which I hope will inspire you to create.

Here’s a little taster…
