hi. my name is Michelle, i am 30 years old. Im married to Matt and we have a 4 year old boy called William. i work full time as a paediatric staff nurse at our local hospital. I started making cards in 2010 as a way to relax after suffering with postnatal depression. My hobby soon became an obsession, lol, and i now spend a lot of time (and; money) on my new love. I have also had a little dabble in knitting and sewing and discovered a crafty side to me i never knew i had!

hello crafters. well as you can see my crafting corner is getting a bit cluttered. Im desperately in need of more space. luckily we are having an extension on our house which means i can have my very own craft room (woo hoo). Im very excited about my new room and want to cram it full of fab storage solutions to make everything accessible. Would love to see pics of your craft rooms/spaces & storage solutions for inspiration (& a good nosey at your crafty stash)!
