Welcome to My Blog

I'm a stay-at-home mum with my gorgeous husband and 10 year old son. I am very blessed to have them in my life, as they are my constant support and encouragement, and allow me to spend my days creating and designing my crafts.

I love to create things, hence this new blog called E creations. I love anything crafty: scrapbooking, card-making, embroidery, quilting - you name it.  I tried my hand at all forms of crafts, but it wasn't until I was 6 months pregnant with my darling son, that I discovered Scrapbooking and Quilting. WOW I was in Heaven! The very first quilt I made was a queen sized bed quilt for my bed. Talk about starting small! I never took classes, but was taught by my best friend - she's a real gem.

Scrapbooking was my favourite. I was hooked, which quite quickly became an obsession! I loved the tactile feel of papers, and embellishments. Thankfully my husband was supportive and didn't complain about my spending. Everyday I would sit there and scrap for hours creating my pages, 6 months pregnant with very very swollen feet. Trust me, I never complained! That was 10 years ago. In the meantime I have created many scrapbooking albums that document our family history, as presents for family and friends, and for sale. I love making cards. I love bright, fun, and happy much like me :-). I've been selling my cards and crafts for a while now and am very passionate about what I do.

I decided to start this blog as a way to document my creative journey and share it with others, who also like making 'stuff' like me. Come and visit me often and see what I am up too and maybe you too will find something interesting. Please feel free to leave me a comment as I'd love to hear from you.
