About Me

Hi I'm Clare, and as you can probably tell by my blog name I love to craft. It is a hobby of mine which I fit in my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant in a primary school, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

While the children are away, mum will play!

Hi there folks, a quick blog from me today. My children are away camping which means I have a lot of crafty time on my hands. Yesterday I decided to have another go at a mixed media canvas.

This time I have just used inks as opposed to acrylics although all of the stencilling has been done with gesso.

I know that there is always room for improvement. I getting a bit more confident with this new craft but I am learning from each canvas that I make and jotting down my do's and dont's in my note/sketch book.


I look forward to hearing your comments. Like I said this is still early days for me so all advise is welcome.


Crafty hugs,
