Welcome to my crafty cardmaking blog. It seems a bit weird saying that when there are already fifty-plus posts here, but then I have only just flipped the “public blog” switch.

I always planned on making it public  — I even wrote an introductory post way back when — it just took me longer than expected to actually catch up and create the archive of all the cards that I had already made. The dates on the posts bear little or no resemblance to when the cards were made — apart from the more recent ones — though they are posted in the order they were made. My desire for tidiness meant I had to spread them out neatly rather than post them in random batches.

Do not expect a regular two posts per week in the future! All my cards are made for personal use as and when inspiration arrives (or there is an imminent birthday).
