ABOUT

Hello and welcome to all my fellow crafters, crocheters and scrapbookers!

Heidi - Owner of Gorgeous Crafts

This is a crafting, scrapbooking and crocheting blog where I share the projects I’m working on including my crafting disasters!

About me

My name is Heidi and I am a crafting addict… there I’ve said it!

Like alot of people, I’ve been a crafter in one form or another since I was a child, my crafting obsessions have included knitting and crochet; papercrafting (scrapbooks and card making); cake decorating; embroidery; cross-stitch; salt dough… the list goes on (and on!). Whatever my latest crafting obsession is, that is what I spend most of my free time doing.

I am Mum to one grown up son (he’s currently at university) and one fur baby, a lurcher called Turner (we recently lost our other fur baby and Turner misses her dreadfully).  In October 2015 my son decided to go vegan, up until then we had been a meat eating household.  I’ve never been what you’d call a brilliant cook so this has presented a whole new challenge for me!  You may hear more about that on here some day.

By day I work full time in an office, by night you can normally find me working on one project or another whilst dreaming of making crafting my full time profession (I’m working on it!).  I even have a couple of Etsy shops where I sell my handcrafted items.

Anyhoo, I’ll be sharing my crafting tales with you, there will be plenty of links to any projects, patterns and things that have inspired me.

Thanks for visiting
