I have always been creative: ideas filling my head, finding inspiration in everyday things and seeing the world in a slightly different way to others. The manfriend often asks how I can be in silence and not have the TV or radio on. To me though it’s never silent: my thoughts are always going and I don’t hear the silence, in fact not being in silence is often distracting and I can’t concentrate!
It was really after I moved out of my family home and into my own home that I started to actually make some of the things that were spilling out of my head. There was a slight fear of being too messy at my parents house but in my own place I can make as much mess as I like! And I love it!
I have been a big, big fan of craft blogs for a while and still get so excited when new posts come out. The more I got into reading them the more brilliant ones I found! I started to not only be totally inspired by these like minded people but I also started to establish the type of crafts I was most attracted to. I like modern/clean and clever makes mixed with a bit of retro. As long as it looks polished and professional I love it.
This post is a list of my top craft/diy blogs that I follow. I can only hope to one day be anywhere near as good as these girls!
