Please Help! More Venues Needed For The All Counties Challenge

Gentleman Crafter

With just over three months left to go on the All Counties Craft Challenge concern is welling within me that I may not meet the challenge of visiting all 92 historic counties due to a lack of contact from those locations that I have yet to visit.

Is this because there is no interest, no people or that my communication efforts simply aren’t getting through?

Either way I would really appreciate your help.

The Groovi plates make it easy to emboss your designs. I used the wrens plate for the main image and coloured on the reverse with pencils. The border leaves are from birds Christmas plate and the landscape is from the plate that comes with the starter kit.

Me, Myself and I – That’s That, What Next?

Gentleman Crafter

A few months ago I made a very hard decision to resign from my role as a TV Producer at Create and Craft TV.

Having been involved in the channelforover 12 years, from day 1 in fact, it is definitely like saying goodbyeto a dear family member.

The choice to leave a steady income and become reliant on my own abilities in order to generate an income has been an incredibly scary one. Plagued with self doubt I have on numerous occasions thought about just finding any old job, just to pay the bills however I had a word with myself (actually in the mirror) and have told myself that I can and indeed should do this.
