House of Hippo is the name I use for my crafty hobby. The idea was formed in the early 1990s when I was asked to design seating plans for a wedding photographer in charming North Devon, England.
I've been making cards since I was a little girl when I designed a masterpiece for our Siamese cat, complete with gold crown and royal robe! I love scrapbooking, knitting, sewing, cross stitch and most crafts. I have a comprehensive rubber stamp collection and spend every spare minute paper crafting and recording memories with Project Life. I will have a go at most things but love creating Christian cards and hand crafted gifts.
After 20 years working for the Government I qualified as an adult tutor and for 11 years thoroughly enjoyed teaching Family Learning courses such as making Story Sacks or a scrapbook to treasure. I love to demonstrate that anyone can craft and run a range of workshops to make an Exploding Box, mini Photo albums as well as sessions for dads and their children making cards and gifts for Mother's Day.
