About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting over 10 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with mixed media on canvases, and altering items like boxes and frames. I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Another step in the right direction....

So, if anyone out there is actually following this, you may have realised that there has been rather a long lull since my last post.

I'd like to blame it on being very busy (and that is partly true - May has been one of the busiest months for me at work). But there is also something that has been holding me back.

Maybe it's making that final commitment - I'm going to have to keep the website up to date, check if anyone has ordered anything, get it packaged and posted in good time (that's always presuming anyone finds the site and ever orders anything).

But maybe I just needed some motivation to get cracking again. And that came last night, in the form of my other half deciding he was going to set up a blog of his own to share the footage from the webcams in our garden nestboxes.

Now I have a "slightly" competitive streak in me, and after my initial reaction of throwing the toys out the pram because BLOGGING was MY thing, I calmed down and decided that at least I still had a WEBSITE and he doesn't!! HA!! So maybe it was time to do something TO the website.

To that end, I have been having a play today, and have achieved two things. One, I now have a gallery to show some of my designs. And two, I have a link on there to my blog. I know they seem like small things, but it's a step in the right direction. My next move will be looking at how to set up the shop side of it. That could take a little more time!!

So please now feel free to visit my website at www.papercraftbycarole.co.uk
Hold on - am thinking I might just go back and see if I can set up a guestbook for people to leave comments. Mmmm....

Anyway am looking forward to the other half coming home so I can brag to him about my wonderful website (that he doens't have!!!) that links to my blog!!

Until next time....

EDIT: Have put a guestbook on now as well - have to see how that goes though, as I can't see a way to moderate comments before they are published!!
