bit about me and why I blog....
My name is Melanie; I'm a wife, daughter and mum to 2 DD's (teenage years!). In my professional life I'm a Registered Nurse but due to some health problems last year I'm reassessing which direction I need to take my life in next.
I'm a newish blogger. I opened my blog in February 2012 but didn't have the courage to actually post anything until October 2012 (oops). I "peeked" at others blogs I bit the bullet and just did it.
I blog a little about my life (my DD's achievements in Scouts and a little bit about me & DH); but my main blogging is reserved for my craft. I enjoy showing other crafters my creations and items I swap and receive.
I love taking part in swaps from all over the world and have made some new friends this way who also share a passion for craft. My main craft is quilting but I dabble in other crafts too - an angel upcycled from a book, cross stitch and paper folding. I'm no chef or cook (not my passion at all) or artist but I do love to see others work who were given these gifts.
So while you're here have a look around - see some of my creations - you may even find a photo of me (something else I don't do well) but you'll have to go back to Oct 13.
Why have I joined in Vikki's blog party? Simple to make new friends who share a passion for sharing. This can be anything; families; friends; crafts; faith; pets; likes; dislikes....... the list can go on forever but the passion everyone puts into their blogs doesn't ♥♥
As a small thank you for taking the time to visit and look around I'm having a giveaway. My main passion is quilting and fabric so just by leaving a comment (about anything at all) you could win 2 fat quarters and a skein of thread.
The winner will be drawn February 15th and they can choose either a theme or a colour and I'll find fats to suit.
Don't forget to go see who else is "growing their blog".
I'm going to make new friends now.........
