I'm bringing back my blog! I've always loved blogging right back to when I started my first blog in 2007 to share my crafty creations. I just struggled to fit it in to my schedule over the last couple of years so I let it go. However there have been some big changes around here since I last published a blog post & now that I've finished revamping the website it feels like the right time to start blogging again.
As it's been so long it's probably a good idea to start with an introduction post.
So, hi, I'm Claire & I'm a Surface Pattern Designer & the owner of Claire Salisbury Studios where I create colourful prints & patterns for all kinds of products like clothing, stationery, greetings cards & wrapping paper, fabric, the list is pretty much endless. I absolutely love Surface Pattern Design, it's so much fun & never fails to put a smile on my face. I try & work that sense of fun & happiness into all the patterns & prints I create. You can check out my portfolio here
I'm also the founder of the Creative Sparks Club which is a community for everyone who is creative or those who want to be creative but don't know where to start. I've created a selection of craft tutorials & more will be added very soon. You can find the tutorials here.
We also have a Facebook group where we can share our creative projects, find inspiration & get to know other creative & crafty people. I'll also be hosting challenges in there from time to time starting with the Make Time To Create Challenge, so keep an eye out for details coming very soon. You can join our friendly little Facebook group here.
I've always loved making things & have been doing so since I was 4 or 5 years old. I've picked up lots of creative skills over the years, scrapbooking, crochet, sewing, drawing & lots more. I want to share that knowledge with you all & show you how easy it is to make things too. I love that sense of satisfaction & the 'I made this' feeling you get when you finish a project & I love planning out the next project I want to work on. I'm also planning on doing some live online Crafternoon craft sessions so that we can chat & make stuff together.
You can join my mailing list so that you can be amongst the first to know when I add new tutorials and you'll also get access to my printable Project Planner when you sign up too which will help you to get your creative project wishlist organised.
I'm really looking forward to putting all my plans into action & making the Creative Sparks Club the best online creative community!
So that's me, what about you? What's your favourite craft? What's your favourite cake or biscuit? Do you have a pet? Sahre something about you in the comments so we can get to know each other.
