Crochet alternatives to greetings cards

I grew up in a truly handmade home. Everything, from the moulds to make the slabs to make the crazy paved drive, to the painted kitchen tiles, to the very jeans I stood up in, was made by my parents. It was almost inevitable that a love of crafting would rub off on me.
It was teamed with a fondness for fripperies but reined in by a parental frugality which really was the mother of invention!
I remember one 'making something' session when, forbidden to use the Sellotape on the grounds that it was too expensive, I used the cardboard insert from my dad's (shop-bought!) shirt, felt pens and thread left over from Mum's art college days, and constructed a marionette with which I was very chuffed. Other favourites included high - heeled shoes fashioned from corrugated cardboard and wooden bricks, pipe cleaner ballet dancers and tiny felt mice.

I was taught to crochet by a classmate.over a series of playtimes in primary school. When I bumped into her by chance decades later, I had the opportunity to thank her and tell her about my Folksy shop.

These days I'm lucky enough to have a smart workshop in the garden. It was built mainly to store my huge quantities of crafting STUFF and to ease the pressure on the house, but most mornings I'm to be found there happily making away and letting the rest of the world do its own thing.
