Hi, from Oz! Let me introduce myself. I am a mum of two beautiful children, one of each. Both are in their early teens which creates some very interesting times here at home. We have two cats, 5 chickens, 3 goldfish and 20 budgies! As you may imagine, it makes for quite a large family. While I was a pretty creative kid, my real passion for craft began about 10 years a go, when my friends introduced me to patchwork with a small, three part Christmas swag. From then I was hooked, line & sinker! Prior to this I had done cross stitch, crotchet and a little knitting, but I had now discovered a craft that really was my niche. My desire for craft didn't end there. I branched out to not only patchwork, but quilts, stitcheries, cushions, wall hangings, dolls and more. From here I also tried my hand at scrapbooking. So now,as you can imagine, I have a craft room full of patterns, fabrics, threads, stickers, papers and more! I love my craft. It gives me an opportunity to escape from life for a while and chill out! Something every mum needs. With the opening of my eBay store, Crafty Corners, I wanted to be able to bring to people quality craft supplies that you may not be able to access easily from other places and at reasonable prices. The selection of supplies available comes from my crafting likes and I am happy to say that I have been able to secure deals with suppliers so that I can make this a reality. My goal is for Crafty Corners to have a reputation of excellent quality and service. You can find my store at http://stores.ebay.com.au/Crafty-Corners-Australia
