I am passionate about crafty therapy and I firmly believe everybody has an artist inside of them, you just need to find that spark of creativity within.

Hey Crafty People,
I’m Tasha, but I go by HandmadeByTasha most places.
I live in the UK, with my husband and two daughters.
I began crafting after I was taken ill in 2016 and I soon discovered the joy it brought me to be able to do something; I was unable to walk and my hands didn’t do everything I wanted them to, but I could still achieve something and that was such a revelation.
In card making I found the opportunity to work with whatever medium I fancied that day, making whatever I felt inspired to do in that moment. I could make these small pieces of art that would go out into the world and hopefully put a smile on someone’s face.
At the age of 12, my art teacher told me I couldn’t draw, that stuck with me. That hurt.
I want to tell you that you can do whatever you want to do and give you the courage to try something. You never know, you might like it!
It might even change your life, it did mine!
