Hi Kristin,

I can't begin to tell you how excited and overwhelmed I am to win a spot next year. I'm looking forward to it so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you......
By the way some ladies have congratulated me on being on the cover, but I don't know what they mean. Could you explain please? Thanks again

Gemma

Story
Tagline
Hello folks. I'm a Welsh lass, born and bred but have been living in York for the last 8 years with my Fiancé. My passion in life is my crafting. I love altered arts, mixed media, art journaling and anything slightly crafty. If it stands still long enough, it will be painted, sprayed with inks and glued...!
Bragging rights
I graduated from BCUC in 2000 with Criminology (Bsc Hons), and and currently studying for a Msc in Forensic science. I moved to York approx 2005 to live with my fiancé. We are self employed which keeps my fiancé very busy, but he loves it. We are 'owned' by our dog and we also have a rabbit. I love living here, but I do miss the coast line of Pembrokeshire. I have made some lovely friends through my craft addiction and they are very special to me.
