My First Time....

I don't mind admitting, today was my first time! Now, get your minds out of the gutter... I have never created a blog before but decided that I can't put it off any more so here I am.

The beginning of the year can be a bit of an anti-climax for us crafters - the lead up to Christmas is so frantic, it feels a bit like you have been run over by a steamroller so the post-Christmas period is a time to catch your breath. To be honest, it can take some time to get the momentum back again but it is a good time to do all those horrible little admin jobs that I make excuses not to do at other times of the year!

I have been making some long-needed changes to my website - http://www.studiocrafts.net/ - and sourcing some new patterns for 2010. I make static cling decorations which look like stained glass but will adhere to any shiny surface - windows, doors, mirrors, etc. so it is important to keep the design list moving on. Please do go and have a look - I am sure you will find something you like (or I am not doing my job properly!!)
