Meet Louise!

Hello Everyone,Louise here. I am so chuffed to be asked to join the crew at the amazing Technique Time Tuesday!

I always feel a bit like the new kid on the block as I haven't been crafting all my life as so many of you  wonderful crafters out there, just for about three years.  Oh, I've always been a knitter and have loved cutting and sticking since I was a child but it's only recently that crafting has become my main hobby.

I live in a very quiet village, in the rolling countryside of Herefordshire and look out from my crafting table across the fields to the Malvern Hills. I have been married to Tom for 24 years - we met at University, whilst giving blood(!) and we have three children, my eldest is at university, and the other two are catching up fast! All my children are competitive swimmers and I'm an official and very active member of the club and County so swimming takes up a big part of our lives.

We LOVE animals and have 2 horses, 3 cats, a rabbit, a guinea pig and 7 little quails. They never fail to bring us pleasure. In my 'spare' time I like to read, love going to the cinema and we all love to travel, so our family holidays are real highlights.

I work in a secondary school as an Assistant Special Educational Needs coordinator and I'm one of those unusual people who think that teenagers are absolutely great...frustrating yes, but funny too!

I am so looking forward to being part of such a creative team and to trying out all those fabulous techniques.I have joined in with as many as possible so far but now there will be no excuse!

It sounds sweet and serene to be looking out your craft room window. Welcome! How do you spell BUSY? I always loved teens, and still do. Blessings , Carole
