Getting To Know You Sunday: Jennifer Joyce

Hi, my name is Jennifer Joyce and I’m a writer and book blogger from Manchester, where I live with

my husband and our two daughters. I spend a lot of time reading and writing, but I also squeeze a bit

of crafting in whenever I can. I love making things either with or for my daughters so I’ll use any

Although I love to craft, I can’t compete with the amazing people on Pinterest (although I do have a

Pinterest board for my craft projects:

Whenever I venture onto Pinterest, I’m both inspired and intimidated in equal measure!

One of my favourite things about Christmas is the run-up to the big day when I get to open up my

craft box (or cupboard) and get gluing and sticking! Last year, we made Santas out of loo rolls, tissue

paper and card, which we filled with sweets and hung up on the tree. I saw something similar on a

TV advert and pinched the idea for my family.

Halloween is a lot of fun for crafting too. Last year, I made little orange crepe paper pouches, which I

filled with sweets and decorated to look like pumpkins to give out to trick or treaters. This year I

made little witches hats filled with sweets and am already thinking about what to make next year.

I like making things out of card or foam sheets and I adore buttons. Plus, a crafter can never have

too many googly eyes! I’ve taken over a whole cupboard in the house to store my craft bits and

pieces and would have an entire room if we had one going spare!
