About Me

My name is Emma, originally from Wales, but after completing my undergrad degree in Architecture at Manchester University, I am living and working in Bath before I go back to my studies.

I began making cards in 2006 after I had finally tried my hand at calligraphy, something that I had wanted to do for a long time. 
After about a year, I started to make the focus of my cards less on the calligraphy and more on the design until I nearly stopped with the calligraphy altogether. 
Friends and family began to ask me to make cards for them to send to people and it was suggested that I began selling them.

After the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan in 2011, I made some cards to sell around school to raise money for the various charities helping after the disaster. As well as the cards I had made especially to sell, I was also commissioned to make some for particular occasions, such as moving house, birthdays and engagement.

It wasn't until early 2012 that I actually began thinking about starting up a little business and selling cards either at craft fairs or over the internet. It began with a fundraiser held in my university halls of residence, again, for the Japanese relief fund. The event was a huge success all round but the buzz of running my own stall made me eager to go for it and so I set up my Facebook page, uploading all the pictures of my cards and inviting family and friends to like it. Twitter was to follow and then I started to write this blog.
I had tried to write blogs in the past but I never made it to the second post. This one, however was different. I love making my cards so much and want to share them with the crafting and non-crafting community alike that I am always eager to write my next entry.

November 2012 saw me at my very first craft fair and, like the fundraiser was a massive success. Since then, I have attended a handful of other fairs, including the second fundraiser at my halls of residence, and I am always on the look out for more.
