About Me

I first discovered Pocket Letters in 2016 on Janette Lane's website https://pocketletters.ning.com/. I loved the idea of penpals via craft and have become active on her website since. Also into sustainability, so love recycling. Have made PLs using Travel Brochures, Postcards, Cereal Box, etc. In 2017 made 5 Christmas themed PLs using previous years Christmas cards, cutting out the cutest pics from the cards and incorporating them into the PL. Worked a treat! Love experimenting with Mixed Media, using the Gel Press, watercolours, stamping. Making lots of cards for birthdays and special occasions. I have learnt lots from Nathalie Kalbach's Creative Jump Start Workshops every January on her website https://nathaliesstudio.com/. She has many talented artists join her for fabulous, easy to follow tutorials.

We have a gorgeous Rhodesian Ridgeback, she is 11yrs old. She is our baby. A gentle soul. Always hungry for food. Sleeps alot, but when its time for a walk, she wakes up instantly and is all excited.
