Let's meet Clare from CM Crafts...
How did you get started in your particular craft and how long have you been doing it?
Let me just say first I am dyslexic and I am proud of it I have had to work hard but I have always loved art because it is the one thing I can do with out the worry of spelling and getting it wrong but I did not get into making the cards I do today about 9 years ago even then they were only very simple but i have grown over the last year to doing more different and harder cards which I love doing.
Are there any negative aspects to doing your craft and if there are how do you work around them?
The blocks I get when I sit down and I cant see the card in my mind I get over it by getting all my books and I have started to take photos of my cards so I can always look back on them.
What tips would you give to anyone thinking of starting your craft?
Come over to my house and have a play with all the bits and bobs I have
then go and have good look around a craft store and talk to the ladies there and also come to on to Misi to talk to the lovely people on the site.
How did you find Misi?
My sister in law told me about the site a year before I plucked up the courage to come on and I did not know how to spell it I had to ask her about 5 times and each time when I got to the computer it had gone.
What is your favourite item in your own Misi shop?
It would have been my hand bags cards in a box but i have sold all the ones i have made so i am picking a hand bag charm called pretty in pink and purple
What is your favourite shop on Misi (besides your own)?
I love them all but i love Expressorize and also her new shop Expressorizesale.

What is your favourite month and why?

Confess one secret that no-one knows about you?
