Default Newbie here saying hello!

Hi, I'm new to the site. I stumbled across it through Pinterest.

A little about me. Well. I live in the UK and am a single mum to a 10 year old not so little boy and also mummy to my fur baby puddy cat. I am a stay at home mum due to having chronic health problems that have made me disabled. (I have severe fibromyalgia and CFS/m.e). I took up card making after becoming sick as a hobby and way to relax. I do sell to friends and family too but only on a very small scale. I have experimented a bit with stamping and love to sit and colour images in with my pro markers but want to do more and get better at it.

I feel like I have a lot to learn though and the tutorial that bought me to the site (Elizabeth's tutorial on hair colouring) was simply brilliant. So as well as hopefully learning from you all I hope to make some new online crafty buddies.

Hello and welcome.

If you're on instagram there is a woman called monastars that does amazing things with promarkers.

Hi Michelle-Lynne and welcome from New Zealand! I am so sorry you are stuggling with your health but you are in the right place for heaps of inspiration and contact with other crafters.

I have some health issues too, and spend a lot of time at home so crafting has become my refuge and comfort! Everybody here is so kind and helpful – a real community. Welcome!
