Reviews on all things crafty an enjoyable

I don't know about you but I have spend a fortune on crafting goodies over the last few years and it is taking up so much space in my house, that I think it is time to re-access my hobby and purchases . 

I have been a slave to advertising on Create and Craft, blogs and in magazines and half the stuff I have bought does not even get used, so in the process of doing projects for the Craft Qualification I am going to go through all the boxes and boxes of goodies I have bough and review them right here om my blog for you, give them a score out of 10.  I do not only do papercraft, I also Knit, Sew, Crochet and enjoy cooking so if some of the other things I feel I am capable of sneak onto my blog bare with me.

The reviews will be on magazines, DVD's, Books, Cutting Dies, Embossing Dies, Stamps, Punches, Card and Papers, CD's, online clubs, Crafting clubs.  Then there is still the Pens, Pencils, Chalks, Inkpads, and all other items for coloring. I will let you know where I bought the from, what I paid and you can decide for yourself if it is something that you might want.

All the materials I will use in these reviews were purchased by myself, so I am not Promoting or Advertising anything unless it clearly states that a product was given to me specifically for review here.

Please leave comments and tell me about your experiences with the products.  If you are the manufacturer, seller, artist who offer these products for sale let me know if you feel that my review as unfair or if I used the product incorrectly. I will have giveaways and would like others to help me with the reviews later on and my Bonscraft Yahoo Group will be used especially for this.

The Certificate in Paper

I enrolled to this Qualification before the big move in August and have not actually got around to do any of the Units but have decide to make this a priority now.  I will be letting you know what I think of this course as I go and also share my projects, designs and some freebies I create for this.  So come back often and have a look.
