Welcome to thehandycrafterblog

Hello everyone,

Just a little introduction about me. I have always been a creative person and take on so many new hobbies. Started jewellery making a few years ago, although it was really enjoyable, I decided to take up a new hobby, nail art!

Really enjoy doing nails, I do all sorts of nail art on natural nails. I did start working with acrylic nails for a while but you need a lot of time and dedication to perfect it and well, at the time I never had the time. I still do nails for my family and myself of course! But it’s not my main hobby at the moment.

Earlier this year I started sewing. I didn’t have a clue on how to use a sewing machine but my good friend YouTube had loads of tutorials which really helped me get into it. I have done a few tote bags, make up bags, pocket tissue holders, toiletry bags etc You can find all my projects on my Instagram page.

Whilst browsing on YouTube, I came across some wonderful ladies who love to do paper craft and that’s where my love for paper crafting was born 🙂 So I now have a new hobby which I dedicate my free time to as it’s something I love to do.

I have been inspired by all the lovely crafters on YouTube and give them 100% credit and thank them for the inspiration. All my paper craft work is also on my Instagram page but have decided to create this blog as not everyone has Instagram and would like to share my projects with everyone.

Hope you all enjoy 🙂





Walk All Over Cancer

Walk All Over Cancer

Hi everyone,

This is not a paper craft related post but I did want to share this on here. I have decided to sign up to doing 10k steps a day from March for Cancer Research UK to raise money for this wonderful charity. But I though, why start in March, why not start now? So I did.

Since Monday 4th February I’ve started doing 10k steps or more a day. It’s no walk in a the park, well, it sort of is… I have been walking everywhere this week and I’m going to be doing this all through out February and March and probably after that too!

I will be posting pictures of my daily steps on a weekly basis so I dont bore you with random pictures of my Fitbit!

It would be lovely if you could donate to this wonderful charity. I will leave my link below. No obligation but thank you very much for your support 🙂

Hope you have a wonderful week and I’ll be back next week with hopefully more steps!!
