I like to draw, I always have. I also like cake, and although I can talk about that at some length, cake is probably not what you want to read about...
Some crafters will know me as the owner of Elzybells Art Stamps. I enjoyed seven years designing whimsical rubber stamps for the cardmaking and papercraft industry before having to close the company due to the effects of the difficult economy. I worked extremely hard throughout those seven years and although I absolutely loved what I was doing, I'm saddened to say I became a fully fledged workaholic.
So, following the closure I took a time out (I figured I deserved it) and pondered what on earth I would do with my life (that sounds rather dramatic, but in a way, it kinda was). What it did affirm for me, was that I needed to be doing something CREATIVE. I knew from that point on, that whatever job I had, it had to stimulate my imagination and fuel my creativity (so no sitting in a boring, stuffy office for me!).
And I'm happy to say that my design juices are flowing and I'm channeling that energy into my original range of greeting cards and personalised prints, which I hope you love as much as I love creating them!
