New Stock for Sale…

I have made a lot of stock lately  & it`s all for sale!

I have been trying to get into a routine where I set out a few hours a week just to make cards. I have applied to participate in an Open House at Embrace Arts, in Leicester on saturday 30th of June, & hopefully I will get a little stall to show my crafts.

I will mainly be selling cards, but I will bring some of my old M-Seal & Dough Craft jewellery as well.

These are three cards I`m selling from my stock. If anybody is interested, please let me know here or send me a PM    in my facebook cosmic crafts page.

LASS Craft Group

This is a craft group I will be running at my work place in Leicester with my work colleague Rhoda:


The therapeutic effects of arts and craft work is known to provide people with opportunities to relax, to feel a sense of accomplishment, to discover pride, to improve fine-motor skills, to develop a meaningful life-long hobby, to maintain an alert mind and so much more.

This is why we’re stating a craft group, and it’s open to anyone who is affected by HIV and would like to teach, or learn new craft skills such as knitting, paper crafts, jewellery making, sewing and crocheting.

We hope our crafts group will allow you to practice a number of skills while building self-esteem in completing projects and socialising with our staff, volunteers and individuals who use our services.

Our first session is this Wednesday, 18th April 2012 from 17:30 – 19:00.  We invite you to bring your crafting projects to show off to the group but don’t worry if you don’t have any as you’ll have the chance to get creative at the group. – We can’t wait to see what you create!

For more information, please contact Rhoda on 0116 2559995
