Crafty Like Granny begins…
I’ve just got back into craft after a long lapse.
My own Mum is the inspiration for this site. ‘Granny’ as she is now known to my daughter, has been doing creative things all her life and taught me many crafty skills.
My reasons for starting this newsletter was to save other people wanting to get back into craft or just to begin, time. We are all time poor and searching the internet is a huge time sucker!!
So every week my aim is to bring craft inspiration, tips and tricks to you in this short and sweet newsletter.
Here is the first one…
