But last year I went to a workshop in Kent, here in the UK, with the amazing Eileen Godwin (http://eileenscraftyzone.blogspot.co.uk/. Eileen gave me the confidence to think of myself as a crafter, rather than just someone who "plays around". She also introduced me to the wonderful stamps of Ryn Tanaka in Canada (http://designsbyryn.blogspot.co.uk/). A friend then recently gave me a hand-embossed candle for Christmas. I decided to experiment with this technique, and combine a love of colours with one of Ryn's amazing stamps, called "Sea Bubbles". Both Ryn and Eileen suggested that I start blogging the results, so this is the first of hopefully many such projects.
It won't always be about candles - but at last I feel confident enought to share with the blogging craft community!
If you would like details of how I created this, let me know!
Would love to hear from you!
