So I'll hand you over to Teresa:
I have been making stuff as long as I can remember. I used to spend my allowance on pads of lined paper and envelopes so I could use my water colors and paint on them to make people stationary.
I was a teenaged Mom, so I have spent most of my life working and being a Mom. Now I am a Gramma and my lovely husband is letting me be a housewife while I try to get my Etsy business off the ground.
I have finally found my one true crafty love and it is fiber. I love everything about it, from washing the stinky fleece, to dyeing, spinning, knitting, crocheting.

The great thing is if you get tired of doing one thing, there is always something else to work on. That way I don't get bored and go off and start another hobby!

Inspiration is everywhere. Anything colorful catches my eye, and things I hear on tv or the internet to my family.
Sometimes I have too many choices and that makes me want to do nothing....but other than that, creating is part of my everyday life.

Teresa told me she's have me knitting and spinning sooner or later. Having seen the gorgeous colours in those yarns, I think she may be right. - Lu
Weather in KeswickFriday I burnt my face eating my tea outside, Sunday we had snow on the tops again. Still dry though, unlike the rest of the UK.
Lots of folk about in Keswick, but I haven't noticed yet whether many of them are using the brand new biker bus going up to Whinlatter.
