Default Hi from England!

Hi everyone: my name is Lynda and I live in beautiful North Yorkshire, England. I'm 64 years of age and married to my wonderful husband Steve. We're both retired and moved here from the south of the country just two years ago. We spent the first year getting our house just as we want it and this year we've been able to start enjoying our surroundings - and spending more time on our hobbies, of course!

I used to do mostly embroidery, but you can get too much of it in the house after a while. So I turned to papercrafts (mostly you make it and you send it to someone else!) and I particularly love working with recycled and reclaimed materials. In 2002/3, I took a year's college course and finished with a City & Guilds certificate in Papercraft, of which I'm quite proud as I never was very good with examinations. I go to a jewellery group every month here in Richmond, but I haven't yet found any papercraft groups to join - maybe I should start one myself.

I've visited the Splitcoast forum before as I guest, but today I thought I really should sign up.

Hi Lynda and welcome from New Zealand. I am retired too and love having time for my hobbys: painting, gardening and of course card making. That's great you work with recycled materials. I really admire people who can see the potential in what others discard.
