Well, here goes….my first ever blog, at the suggestion of my husband! My name is Julia, and I turned 40 last year, and decided it would be a good time to try new things. I’ve always enjoyed arts and crafts, and this year I have decided that I would like to explore different ways of being creative. At the end of last year I did some wet felting, and I’ve done bits of crochet for a while. Then I’ve just bought a couple of needle felting kits, and paper cutting things. I’ve also bought a book called ‘draw every day, draw every way’, and think it would be good to have a way of sharing what I have done each time I do something on a creative project. So here is my record of this attempt at being more creative over the course of a year (but which hopefully may continue longer). I know already that it would be a crazy target to try to do something every day, so I’m not going to attempt that, despite the title of the book! I just want to take opportunities where I can to develop new skills, and relax, and hopefully develop my creativity along the way. I’m hoping that having a blog will motivate me to keep going, and be a nice record of the things I do, even if no-one ends up reading it!

Scarf looks great. I wouldn’t worry about the appearance of the join on the inside. Good to hear about the guinea pigs. Are you asking all your friends for their paper shredding. We supply ours to the vicarage for their guinea pig bedding.
We’ve not used paper shredding so far…. Just hay. But they do like ripping up the edges of the newspaper in the bottom of their cage!
Your blog sounds so similar to mine …I have very similar intentions and currently crochet, papercut and needle felting is on my to-do list 😉 x
I’ve enjoyed reading your blog too, and am looking forward to the next installment. Lots of other blogs seem to focus on one type of craft so it’s lovely to know about yours being similar to mine
