happy new year– finally all set up to craft again!!

 Happy New Year to you all. How are you all doing?


I am delighted to say that I am returning to my blog and to crafting! My life has finally settled to a point where I can dedicate one day a week to myself and my crafting. I am really ready to be back after a few false starts in the last couple of years. I have moved my craft room downstairs into what was the dining room and whilst it is not completely organised I am in a good position to start creating again.


I have missed making cards so much but it just has never been the right time to come back to my blog…. until now.


I am not sure how much of my stash is still ok after all these years but I suppose the only way I will find out is to start using it. I started to colour an image last night with my copics but then a huge drop of ink blobbed from the tip so I don’t know if a lot of the tips will need replacing or if it was just in shock after being dormant for pretty much 10 years!


Anyway, I have no clue what is current in card making, what styles are popular or even what stamps are available. I think I am pretty well set up with paper pads and embellishments to last another 50 years but I would like to treat myself to a few new stamps.


I would love to hear what your favourite place to shop is and what stamps you are enjoying right now. There should be a card from me next week so watch this space.


If any of my old blogging buddies are still around I would love you to say hi and let me know that you are still crafting. Blogger seems to have changed a bit so any hints and tips would be fab. I am going to tidy up my blog a bit I think and get rid of a few random posts that I have posted in the last few years that aren’t really reflective of my blog etc. Plus I need to start visiting you all again.


If you are on facebook or instagram please do let me know. I am on there under ‘Made by Mawa’ but I think I may come back to my old name of Marcea’s Crafting Corner.


Anyway, I just wanted to say I am back and I can’t wait to be uploading on a regular basis.


Take care and see you soon,

Marcea xx

Hi Marcea … great to see you back again. I too have come back to crafting … I did virtually none from 2013 when my mum passed away and pretty much stopped altogether in 2015 when my dad passed away. I allowed life and particularly work to get in the way, but I was made redundant last March and due to COVID haven’t bothered looking for another job, so I now have so much time!!

Like you I had to root out my old stash and had no clue what was current. If it’s ok I will send you a FB Messenger comment in more detail about what I’ve found these past. 6 months
