Please help the Design Team and me welcome one of our May / June Guest Designers for Fitztown. This is Marg and this is what she'd like you to know about her:
Hiya, my name is Margaret (but I do prefer to be called Marg or Mags).
I am a 52 year old disabled single parent to a 16 year old daughter, unable to work due to quite serious disabilities in my spine and various other ailments, called Charcot-Marie-Tooth or Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy, and I have type 1A of many. It is a lesser known form of Muscular Dystrophy which is an inherited progressive genetic disease but is not life threatening. I, therefore, craft to keep my mind and hands creative. I have always been creative anyway, but I know I just can not sit and watch television or be on the laptop all day, every day. Equally, I am unable to work due to immense pain. Crafting is my therapy, my life.
My creative streak has always been with me, (drawing, sewing, cross stitch) but only the last 5+ years have I been creating cards good enough to sell. I have got a lot more creative and better over the years.... Creating a paper craft project now, I am very lucky that I can pick up a piece of scrap craft material and put a card together using that one piece., equally though, I can follow a sketch and/or theme to the letter or diversify when needed.
I hope you will pop on over to Marg's blog and give her a warm Fitztown welcome!
