I have had great fun learning how to create a blog, guided by my wonderful friend, Sylvia. She guided me through all the various tabs and options - with an earlier name I chose (Fresh Freesia) which I wasn't really happy with, even though Freesias have been my favourite flowers ever since I can remember. I now have another name - Sue's Craft Cupboard, as I think this reflects me and my life long passion for all crafts. I can now get busy putting up photos of my work to share with some online friends I've met through Lawendula's fantastic Paper Swaps this year.
I am the eldest in a family of 7 children and my creative side has been evident for as long as I can remember. (I still have dolls clothes that I made when I was about 10 years old - and the doll!)
I love to knit, crochet, sew, write, read, make books, make jewellery, work in the garden and recently I discovered the joy of 'playing' with art again. I attended an Altered Books Course 3 years ago and haven't stopped "playing" with mixed media since. I find all creative pursuits very calming and relaxing and something I do every day - in one form or another.
I worked as a Teacher Librarian for 35 years & as my husband is already retired and keen to travel, I now do casual teaching and try to find more time to be in my "Room"
