Introducing Rachel from The Printed Tree

12th Dec 2012


Happy 12th December everyone!

Eeek, half way there, can you believe it.

Today’s blog is a bit of an introduction for tomorrow. My lovely friend Rachel Poole (who I met on the first day at design university) will be sharing some lovely hand made Christmas decorations on the Ellie Kelly blog tomorrow but I thought it would be nice for Rachel to tell you a bit more about herself first.



Hello. I’m Rachel. By day I am a designer and owner of The Printed Tree, by night (apart from dream filled sleeper) I am a crafter. There is nothing in my house that is safe from being cut up, sewn/stuck together or upcycled to something “new”. I simply can’t help myself! Many an evening my husband has come home to a hot glue gun in the kitchen, scraps of fabric strewn over the dining room table and the odd stray pin/needle embedded in the carpet.



Before I begin my chats with you all on Ellie’s fabulous blog I wanted to share with you a little about myself and where my love for craft came from. I have always had a creative outlook on life and always at my happiest when knee deep in paint, glue and pretty fabrics and papers. In the school summer holidays, right up until I was 16, I would spend a week with my late Nan and we would dabble in everything from fabric painting, glass painting, mosaic tiling, to sewing and knitting, you name it we probably tried it! I adored this time and she truly was my craft inspiration.
When Ellie recently asked if I would like to write a few crafty blogs for her 24 blogs of Christmas challenge I jumped at the chance. The chance to pass on some of my creative obsessions and loves. Hopefully to inspire even just a few of you to have a go, get the kids involved (if you are brave enough) and make something completely unique to hang on your tree or give as a gift. I hope you enjoy this as much as I will!
See you all tomorrow for something crafty and utterly Christmassy.
Bye for now
