Faith is taking the first step. Even if you don't see the staircase

Welcome to Cheryl Espie Creates!
My name is Cheryl and I was born in the UK. I have been with my partner for 20 years. I have two children and three grandchildren.
In 2000 I graduated as a mental health nurse in the UK, though I had been working as a health care aid throughout my nurse training. In 2006, I moved to Canada for a couple of years. But, I am still here!
Creating has always been a passion of mine, from winning an art competition at school, always being in the school plays and choosing all creative subjects when possible like art, sewing and cookery. As my children were growing up you would often find me at my sewing machine making cushion covers and curtains. Unfortunately, I also made some interesting dresses for my daughter to wear!
Paper crafting is a true joy to me and I feel most at 'home' in my craft room. Colours, paper, glue, cutting, mediums and stamping....anything that involves creating with paper and card stock just makes me feel great. I am sure that I am not the only one who sees patterned paper and colours and gets all excited, right?
I hope you enjoy visiting my blog. Hopefully you will find it inspiring and motivates you to start creating.
