I was always a crafty kid - I enjoyed playing with paints, drawing, making things and generally getting messy. In 2009, I found paper crafting through shopping TV and I was utterly hooked! In 2011, my passion for craft resulted in me running a design team. In this year, I was also lucky enough to become an accredited Crafter's Companion craft demonstrator - such a wonderful experience. A few years after that, the opportunity arose to join the Development Team and the rest, as they say, is history!
