I bought my first digital camera in 2000. It cost about £250 I think, and for that I got 1 whole megapixel. Being born in 1982 meant that for the first part of my life, photography had been on film, mainly with cheap, plastic bodied cameras. Although I did buy (and still own) a Olympus OM-10 film SLR that was infinitely more satisfying to use. In fact I only stopped using my ‘snappy’ film camera in about 2005, which really doesn’t seem that long ago, does it?Read more

It is fairly obvious that I love crafts and that I love using my creativity to make things. I mean, all the craft tutorials should be a big clue! But it is not the only way that I live a creative life. In fact, I find it hard not to make little creative decisions and choices throughout my everyday life. A lot of people might say they are just not creative, but I would say that in fact everybody is, and that we are just misunderstanding what creativity truly is.

If you are looking a gift for someone creative, I have just the post for you! My Creative Gift Guide has lots of creative present ideas, including books, kits and experiences.
I remember the excitement of getting new toys, art kits and books as presents when I was a kid. You know, fun stuff that you actually interact with. Then as you get older, gifts start to become, well, a bit boring. Not that there’s anything wrong with a bottle of wine or boxes of chocolates, but sometimes, I would like something a bit more inventive. Something that lasts beyond New Years. So here are some gifts that are perfect for your creatively minded family and friends!

When people ask why I go to Blogtacular each year, the one reason I always give is that I love the intense burst of positivity. There is something about having so many creative people in one place, all cheering each other on, all rooting for each other to succeed and helping one another out, that is almost dizzying. Something magical happens when so many creatives converge for the sole purpose of being inspired and learning, and Blogtacular is the best example of this that I have experienced.
