Suzy B

I was born in Croydon South London, I moved to Cornwall in 1986, I am 57 years young..... married to Brian and have Four grown up children and Ten Grand Children, I have a multitude of animals, 2 Black Labrador's 1 Border Terrier 3 Cats and I horse, I work as a Care Support Worker, and do Three Night Shifts a week, my way of unwinding, is walking my dog's and riding my horse, and of course my other way is Crafting, I have dabbled in most craft's but I keep coming back to Card Making, I love the colour's and the textures and watching a design come together, so if I am not in the fields walking my Dog's or Galloping my Horse, I will be locked away in my Craft Studio surrounded by allsorts  of wonderful crafting materials ..... 


'I'm Hazel, known in the crafting world as Craftyhazelnut. I live in Bromley, part of Greater London in the UK. I'm 65 and am married to John, who fully supports me in my obsession for accumulating (and using) crafting goodies. I've always been interesting in crafting in one form or another; when I was younger I did a lot of knitting, embroidery, crocheting etc but over the past thirteen years or so have been more involved in papercrafting, particularly cardmaking, although I dabble in scrapbooking from time to time. I have my own personal crafting blog:


Hi folks and very pleased to meet you. 
I am 54 years of age and absolutely love to inspire and be inspired by other fellow crafters.
I live in the North West of England with my hubby and 2 adorable doogies.  
However, I spend most of my time at our holiday home in the Yorkshire Dales where we see lots of wildlife.
I have 2 sons and 3 grandchildren
I have been seriously crafting for 10+ years and have tried my hand at lots of things. 
I studied Design at University as a mature student in textiles but more recently got into paper crafts.
I am delighted to have been given this exciting Design Team opportunity and looking forward to creating all things Christmas x


I'm married with 5 grown up children and 3 grandchildren and another on the way. I'm an avid crafter who enjoys having a "go" at most things. My main interest craft wise, is cardmaking, two of my favourite techniques are stamping and paper embroidery. I attend several craft groups, so most days find me somewhere involved with other people and craft, LOL. I teach cards at a community craft centre and started up another small group which involves just a few friends. I’ve been involved with both of these two groups for about 14 –15 years.  I'm also involved in singing and am a member of my church choir and also a large choir of about 80 people. This choir performs about 4-5 times a year singing classic works mainly and also doing a couple of charity performances around Christmas time. I’ve been blogging for 3 years and enjoy seeing what other people create and share.
