the crafty bits

Since I was a little girl, I’ve loved doing anything crafty. I used to do all sorts of things, such as Fimo modelling (some of my works were shown on ‘Live and Kicking’ – that shows my age), painting (I won a Blue Peter badge for that), drawing, sewing, cross-stitch, making cards, making things out of household junk etc., in fact anything I could experiment with to fill up the school holidays and rainy weekends. I loved getting ideas from books and TV programmes. As a teenager I was very into interior design, and designed most of the decor in my parents’ house, and even did some of the DIY myself. Throughout university, I was always found sitting on the sofa with a cross-stitch project in evenings during exam periods: it was my craft therapy, my way to unwind, de-stress and take my mind off the amount of work I had to do. It’s so nice to look at these projects hanging on our walls, now that we’re way past exams, and think that something good came out of that difficult time. These days there’s always so much to do that I find craft comes at the bottom of my to-do list. But when I do have a bit of time to devote to it, I love a bit of craft therapy, and I like to involve my toddler in it as much as possible too.
