Introducing our April 2021 guest scrapbooker

Posted by Linda Gransby on

I'm Sandra, and I live 16 miles south of Cambridge BUT originally from Yorkshire.  I started scrapbooking in 2004. My husbands mum had died the previous year and he'd brought home the family photos. 

At first they just sat in a drawer, then early 2004 I read an article about scrapbooking and preserving heritage photos and decided thats what was needed for the drawer full of photos. 

I visited a craft fair where there was a scrapbook stall came away having bent the plastic with everything I needed.  Since then I have scrapped our family photos holidays graduations safari holidays etc.  My next big task is to scan and scrapbook MY family photos having lost my mum last year. 

I like to take photos of wildlife birds animals preferably in their natural surroundingsand  my 3 cats.  When I'm allowed I enjoy going to Haworth and photographing the moors etc.

My other hobbies are needle felting, card making, knitting, crochet and sewing.  Enjoy watching TV programmes like Springwatch, Yorkshire Vets All Creature Great and Small and Call the Midwife. 

I enjoy crafting cos it gives me an escape from all that is going on and I can be engrossed in a project and a afternoon has gone before I've realised it lol....

When allowed I have a stall at a local Farmers Market where I sell my handmade card and needle felted products to raise funds for a local Animal Rescue (all my cats were rehomed from them.

The photo is of me and my hubby and our safari guide in Samburu in July 2018
