Skye Creates

Ever since I can remember I've loved being creative and making things with my hands. I used to make clothes for my Barbie dolls and later progressed to making my own clothes. School holidays were always spent making crafts, particularly paper crafts and figurines with Fimo polymer clay. I'd always have a needlecraft project to work on in front of the TV. Later I tried beading. My problem is that I can't decide what craft to focus on and have to try them all!

See my Pinterest pages for my latest craft projects.

My courses are available through my online arts and crafts school or through Skillshare.
