Something New for ChocolatePages.

Something New for ChocolatePages.

ChocolatePages began here 5 years ago. In the past 5 years, I have read and reviewed more books than I can remember. Books are still a great love and hobby of mine. But I have decided to add a little something extra to my blog.

I have a new interest and one I hope that you will find interesting and want to chat to me about.

My latest love is crafting, more specifically card making. Since I have started this hobby I have found that the snailmail / paper loving community is an imaginative, friendly and really supportive group, much like the bookish community.

As this is my blog to write about what I enjoy, I will now be including crafting along with my enjoyment of books. I hope my followers will continue to support me and embrace this addition to ChocolatePages.

Over the weeks I may show you cards and crafts I have made and received. I will also show you some techniques that I have learned along the way.

I have lots of ideas of how to bring this new element to ChocolatePages.

My name still stands for the things I love, chocolate, book pages and now paper pages!!

I look forward to sharing my passion with you.

To give you a little idea of what’s to come, here are some examples of my crafting pieces.

If any paper lovers, snail mailers or craft lovers are reading this, feel free to add any suggestions of posts you may want to read here.

    I look forward to your posts. I really used to enjoy my paper crafts but find it difficult now. I do crochet though. If you enhoy card making give scrapbooking a try that is really good also and no need for any different things from what you use for card making. Nothing like home made cards/gifts. Enjoy xx

    Hi Amanda, I am so glad you decided to include your passion of craft to your blog. I am really looking forward to all of your posts, and am happy to see your work.

      Thanks Irena and thank you also for the encouragement for me to do this.
      I have lots of ideas of crafty things to write about, I just have to think about how to write the posts for crafty and not so crafty readers.
