Hi, Welcome To My Blog

I love various different types of crafts and have had a dabble at most over the years, some with greater success than others. I believe that apart from loving and giving, being creative is the next most important thing to do. There is something about being creative that taps into something deep within us that makes us feel good with the world. But then we were made in the image of God, God The Creator... so I guess being creative will be second nature to us if we allow. The problem is that many people will not have a go because they make the mistake of measuring themselves against others... and that is just not a good thing to do. I create because I like to create, not because I have to impress anyone else or be better than anyone else. I created this blog with a lot of help from my son-in-law, as a personal scrap book that I am happy to share with others if they wish to take a look.... Enjoy <><

Crinoline Lady

I think this was actually the first cake I made on my own back in about 1983. I was shown how to make it when I went on a coach trip to the Mary Ford shop in Hythe with a friend and a group from college.

The sponge cake was baked in a 'bell tin' and covered in Regalice. I had great fun decorating it.

The teenage doll had her legs removed so that it didn't damage the cake.
