Hi Regina and welcome from New Zealand! Isn't crafting fun! I also paint, knit, and make jewelery, and have made candles in my dim and distant past (I am now 51). I also love Stampin' Up with their co-ordinating papers and embellishments and wonderful stamps. You will get no end of inspiration here so have fun exploring!
