Spotlight on Janet Hines - Top 5 from Challenge 10

For our current challenge "NEW BEGINNINGS" please click here


We thought it would be nice to have spotlight posts throughout the month dedicated to our top 5 from the last challenge "SCENE BUILDING"  We hope you enjoy reading about their crafting journey and you never know it could be you in the spotlight next month.

My name's Janet and I'm from Stourbridge in the West Midlands.  I work as a GP receptionist which is a necessity to fund my craft habit.

I've been crafting since I was a little girl and have tried most things over the years, but I found card making a fair few years ago whilst watching a shopping channel.  Since then I seem to concentrate on stamping as they are so versatile.

I first met Barbara when she used to do craft shows at the motor cycle museum in Birmingham.  I wonder if Barbara can remember how long ago that was? I've loved watching her ever since and have crafted along with several of Barbara's 'in the classroom' shows which I really enjoy and of course Maria Simms in the 'take two' shows as well.

My one crafting dream would to be part of the Clarity design team.  Well dreams can come come true if you believe enough, well so they say....


Here's Janets Christmas scene building tag with a colourful red breasted robin:
