Oh you guys!
I’m blushing, honest to goodness blushing!
Some of you gorgeously wonderful people have nominated me in the BiB’s Craft category!
I’m amongst some truly amazingly talented bloggers.
I guess this is my “vote for me plea” to get me through to the next round, so no pressure or anything!
Hmmm, so why vote for me, I’m not the most original, I don’t take the best photos, I’m not the most consistent crafter, all I am is a regular girl who started crafting as a way to stay sane. That doesn’t sound good, but stay with me….
I was never a crafty person, it wasn't until I was in the middle of a really dark phase of my depression and PTSD when I realised I needed an “outlet”, a way for me to channel all the confusion, anger, despair and random mind wonderings that are part and parcel of my depression into something productive and useful.
Before I knew it I had immersed myself in what seemed like every kind of craft out there, except crochet, I love it, but it scares the bejezus out of me.
I have super glued my fingers together, sewn through my hand, accidentally turned into a Smurf using spray paint, mistakenly cut holes in my pjs, burnt myself with my glue gun more times than I can count and experienced more glitter bomb explosions than is probably healthy.
Today, my crafting has become more personal, it represents me and what I want to do with my children, I still share what I do cause maybe it might help someone else in the same position as I am to find an outlet for the feelings they can’t keep inside.
If you enjoy my blog and feel inclined to do so, I would really appreciate it if you could vote for little ol’ me in the craft category, I would be ridiculously happily excited, and most likely act like a total loon at Britmums!
