Hmmm, where do I begin? Lol

I am a mum of 4 beautiful children who keep me VERY busy!  I have a passion for sharing my love of all things paper craft to encourage and inspire you along your journey, no matter where you may be!

I have ALWAYS loved to craft and have done for as long as I can remember – even as a teenager when it wasn’t considered ‘trendy’ you would find me happily curled up doing a cross stitch or similar.

I will give almost everything crafty a go. I have dabbled in cake decorating, beading, needle felting, crochet, tapestry, embroidery, papertole and a whole lot more – but my main loves are cardmaking, scrapbooking and quilting.

I was first introduced by a friend to stamping and card making, many years ago … and from there my love for it developed. When I attended my first Stampin’ Up! workshop, I absolutely fell in love with their products. They are great quality (trust me, I have seen and used plenty over the years), and all the co-ordinating colours and accessories make designing a card so easy!

I joined Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator in 2013, fulfilling something I had wanted to do for such a long time … but with my young family, I just never seemed to have the time to do anything! Well, they are off at school now, and I work full time, but I keep my sanity by crafting! By just entering my craft room, I can feel that I physically relax!  I have found craft to be such a good relief from everyday pressures.  A way to unwind and improve your mental health.  My craft space has become my haven – my oasis – as such My Paper Oasis was born!

I really look forward to sharing ideas and creativity with you all. Thanks for joining me on my journey 🙂
