I must confess that I've spent almost 24 hours trying to decide what to write here and eventually decided to just drop myself in and start swimming. Or is that sinking? Definitely doggy paddling at least.
So, who am I and what is this all about?
My name is Laura and I live in Leeds in the UK with my husband and our 2 cats.
My husband and I at Christmas time. Obviously. We don't wear Santa hats all year 'round.
Our cat Harold. Look at those eyes. 'Why don't you give me treats? Don't you love me???'
Our other cat Tippy in a crochet cat sack I made for her. By the radiator. Cosy
I am what I would class as one of life's Enthusiastic Amateur Crafter's. I like making things. All sorts of different things.
My husband says I have a short attention span and I'm always flitting from one hobby to the next, and to some extent that's true. I'll find a new hobby and I will persue it almost obsessively for a few months, and then I'll find a new obsession..and the cycle will begin again. However, I never forget those old crafts which have fallen by the wayside. My craft stash is wide and varied. I often pop back and dabble with something I've played with before, and I do have one or two WIPs I could really do with picking up again..
So this blog, my blog, is all about my Enthusiastic Amateur Crafting. What new craft I am passionately persuing. What tutorials I am using and craft blogs I'm reading. What works. What doesn't. My results both good, bad and ugly and maybe..just maybe..my own tutorials.
The final goal: I'd really like to find that one craft I love above all others. The one I really feel 'This is it, this is the one I am best at. This is the one which I can complete most professionally' Then, I'd really like to have my own craft stall at a fair- then I can become an Enthusiastic Amateur Professional Crafter! (Can you be an amateur professional? Does that even make sense? Well that's the goal!)
If you've made it all the way to the end here maybe you could leave me a comment. Are you a EAC? Maybe there is a blog or craft you would like to recommend. Please, say hi!
Oh, I almost forgot- Purple Lolly. It's quite simple. Purple is my favourite colour as you will see, I'm sure, and Lolly is a nickname my husband gave me. Simples. :)
