A Brit in Alaska

Welcome to my blog! I'm switching over from my old blog http://abitofthisabitofthat.spaces.live.com/ where you can view 'art from my past' and past musings! :) O this new blog, I will be posting hopefully daily with things I am doing and what I have crafted. I am a avid crafter, even owning my own online store as I can only create so much for family, friends and swaps...I need to sell the surplus! :) If you would like to visit my store, please go to http://paperartplus.etsy.com/ .

About Me

Anchorage, Alaska, United States
I live in a beautiful State, Alaska! I love Jesus and attend ChangePoint Church. Both my hubby and I are retired now and are enjoying the stress-free life with ease and joy! I'm from England and moved here with my then GI hubby in 1987! I love to make things and besides the swaps I do with friends, and the pressies for family and friends, I sell the surplus at my online store at PaperArtPlus.etsy.com to provide funds for 'Craft With Love'. Blog at http://craftwithlovecp.blogspot.com/ (currently under re-construction!)
