My name is Lilian. I'd describe myself in part as a Craft Artist. I love to take existing graphics, stamps, die cuts and so on to create artistic craft pieces.
I have a background in Engineering (I wanted to be an astronaut when I was younger!) and I worked as a Process Engineer for several years, but fell out of love with it and left to start my own skincare business.
I've had an interest in crafts ever since I learnt embroidery and sewing in junior school, but it wasn't until I was in my 20s that I took up dressmaking as a hobby. I discovered crochet about 10 years ago and instantly got hooked (sorry) and then cardmaking and papercrafting about six years ago and found a new addiction! I still crochet, sew and embroider occasionally but at the moment papercrafting is my main interest, so that will be the main focus of this blog.
As a result of my love of beautiful fabrics and patterned paper I also took up surface pattern design. You can find my designs and learn more about my design journey at Merry Makewell Designs.
I'm also learning to paint and trying to improve my drawing skills!
It's a constant struggle to feed all my interests and sometimes I think it would be easier if I just focused on one thing, but then that wouldn't be me!
Thanks for stopping by and taking an interest in my little craft corner.
