Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!


My name is Anna, I am from Poland.
I am a primary school teacher, a ballroom dance teacher and a fitness instructor. I run a small Dance & Fitness Studio in a town I live with my fiance.
I started my card making in February 2012 and I still feel like a beginner. This is my way to keep myself calm and stay still sitting. While my hands are busy, my mind is open to any thought, so I can re-think everything that should be re-thinked.
I love visiting other crafter's blogs, there is lots of inspiration there and lots of things to learn. I have no scraproom, I just make a big mess in the dinning room and my craft stash is in every corner.
I would like to thank Love To Create DT for inviting me, this is an honour!
