A Little Bit About Me

Hi, I’m Diane. I’m a stay at home crafter and “artist in residence” with auto-immune disease.

I believe all things happen for a reason.

I believe that hugs and chocolate can heal most things.

I believe I am the only person in control of my experience of life because I choose how I react to any given situation.

As you will soon discover, I can be a little bit long-winded

Favorite Crafts:

  • Journaling
  • ATCs
  • Skinny Cards
  • Dotee Dolls
  • Zines
  • Post Cards
  • Drawing – I love my Derwent Inktense, Graphic and Watercolour pencils.
  • Painting – Acrylics
  • Card-making
  • Beaded jewellery
  • Collage
  • Crotchet (haven’t done much lately due to health issues)
  • I don’t do much photography these days but with the price of decent cameras coming down I may take it up again soon. The plan is for a camera to be acquired in the post-Christmas sales.
  • I’ve just learned to knit and I can see yarn becoming a new obsession of mine.

Random Facts About Me:

  • My birthday is 13th of October, that makes me a Libra.
  • I consider myself spiritual although I am not religious.
  • I like doing things that are kind to the Earth.
  • I have more ideas for projects than I have time and energy.
  • I plan to open my own Etsy shop in 2011.
  • As much as I don’t like to be defined by my illness, I have come to accept my limitations. Sometimes I will have better days than others. Sometimes I will be in pain. The only certainty is that things will change.
