Hi. I'm Melissa Lawrence and as a crafter, I'm at my most content when I'm creating beautiful things that are perfect for giving and receiving. I love to share my creations in both the virtual and the real world.
I've been crafting in one form or another for as long as I can remember, starting with the famous 'Blue Peter makes' in the 1960s and 1970s. Although my early interest was in knitting and crochet, I quickly moved on to papercrafting, particularly quilling (paper filigree) which I enjoyed doing for many years.
A few years ago, while channel-hopping with the remote control, I came across Create and Craft TV and it was there that I discovered digital crafting and in particular digital scrapbooking. This opened up a whole new world to me as I'd always felt hampered by the fact that I can't draw. Suddenly I had all this amazing artwork at my fingertips. As a result, I now feel able to call myself a designer as well as a crafter because much of my work incorporates my digital designs, many of which are taken from my own photographs, artwork and craftwork.
I'm delighted to welcome you to my website and I do hope you enjoy your visit.
