Hi ya Peeps! Amy here or as most people know me - Aimes! I'm originally from Derbyshire, England but now living in the city of Sheffield (still in England though!) with my special guy and soul-mate Chris. We met at Uni nearly 10 years ago and haven't been apart since! I'm lucky because he has an obsession with IT so he's my guy when it comes to technical problems and in return for the past year or so he's not had to buy a single card for any single occasion in the calendar (well, apart from cards for me!) so it works pretty well!
We have no kids but I work with them full time in a mainstream secondary school (High school) supporting any students with any difficulties (emotional and behavioural) in ANY lesson whilst also teaching literacy. It's a really demanding job but provides the most amazing job satisfaction when it goes to plan! I'm a busy kinda gal so you'll often see me dashing around at work and out of work too - there just aren't enough hours in the day so come the weekend I make a real effort to get inky!
I've been stamping and blogging for about a year now and discovered PTI in March 2009 thanks to my fellow bloggin' buddy Kate. We run a blog together called A Passion For Papertey in which we....umm....well.....share our passion for all things Papertrey!
When getting inky, I wish I had a dedicated room but I'm in the corner of our spare room so it's very cramped but I'll always manage to squeeze a cup of tea on my table somewhere! My main issue is tidying up after an inky session. To suggest I'm not a tidy meticulous stamper is an understatement!
I think my stamping dream would firstly be to get on a design team or get published (or both!) and then to be able to make a living out of my creative outlet. Maybe this year I'll be brave enough to submit something...
My other hobbies apart from the obvious include playing the bass guitar, reading pretty much anything and drawing. I cannot resist the urge to doodle and draw if my hands have nothing else to do.
Finally, I'm so glad to be a part of this group and I'm already getting lots of inspiration from my fellow peeps' creations!
