To state the obvious, I am Sam Lewis! So I'm going to kick off this blog with the obligatory "About Me" and go from there!
I am, as of May 2014, 32 years old. I was adopted at a young age into the Lewis family and am one of 4 children.
I am on the right in the photo below, alongside my partner Claire.
Together with our family of dogs and guinea pigs we live in rainy North Yorkshire in a lovely bungalow overlooking fields and hills.
I have made and sold cards, more as a hobby than anything, for many years, but recent declining health and redundancy from my "proper" job in late 2011 left me at home twiddling my thumbs!
The couple of years following this were filled with the stresses of adjusting to life after a busy and very challenging job that had been my primary focus for almost 10 years. I also underwent 2 more rounds of surgery to my feet and ankles to help me walk a little better (more about that in my next blog post!).
So here I am now, settled into my new role as creative goddess! I very much enjoy the challenge of expanding my creative mind and drawing on many many years of great knowledge and experience in order to satisfy my customers at Make It Sew, my own greeting card and home accessories business.
I look forward to sharing all of my crafty stories with you, with the occasional personal update thrown in!
Claire (l) and me, Sam (r)
