Hi my name is Jodie. Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I am an Australian, currently living in Spain with my family. I love crafts and have met so many other fabulous crafters through this site. I love learning and helping others discover the joys of handmade. I have recently got back into craft after a lapse of a few years. The aim with our website is to reduce the amount of time people have to search for fantastic, helpful information, inspirational reading and craft news.
