Christina loves scrapbooking and card making but realised that there was no local facility for pursuing the hobby. She set about creating a creative haven where friends could meet up and enjoy “time out” whilst sharing ideas, fun and memories.
Christina has a nursing/health visiting/teaching background with the NHS and loves to help others develop their skills and confidence with scrapbooking and card making.
Christina is never happier than when boxes of new goodies arrive!
