First Post!

Wow, I actually took the plunge and made a blog. Cannot. Believe. It. I must have been living under a rock. I should have done this a long time ago, but I always thought "who's going to want to read my blogs? What am I going to blog about?" There are SO MANY interesting blogs out there that I feel a total novice. Well, I am, so please bare with me!

I am a 'crafter', and by that I mean I do crafty things. No, not that kind of crafty things, I make crafty things. It's not going well.

So, I make things.
I make bags and pin cushions and aprons and picture frames and make-up bags and things like that. Here's a little picture of some of the things I make: You can also see some items I have made on Flickr here.

I think you may be able to read about me in my profile, but for now: My husband and I have a business together already, established in 1991 called Forget-Me-Not Miniatures. You can take a look here. We make and retail collectable dolls house miniatures and accessories in the 1:12th scale, meaning for those who don't know, any 'real' sized item can be made into a miniature at a ratio of 1 feet to 1 inch. David makes all kinds of furniture and garden wears and specialises in Tudor furniture, and I make the food and accessories. I have made many items you may consider crafts, i.e. blankets, tissue boxes, aprons etc and I had the urge to get back into making real sized items too, so here I am! And as a business name, I chose similar, in Forget-Me-Not Crafts. Soon I hope to sell on Etsy, Folksy or otherwise and at Craft Fairs - I guess I'll let you know!

I hope to post regularly and I hope you enjoy - I have no idea how this is going to go... :)

Happy crafting... Julie. x
