About BMB

Welcome to my blog, My name is Emma and I have been a crafter since childhood. I am mainly a paper and mixed media crafter, and when I can I love to bake.


I also love to share and educate, which is why I blog. Crafters are some of the most generous people in the world. They are always keen to share hints and tips and their last glue stick, ok maybe their penultimate glue stick and I am proud to be apart of this tradition, passing on some of my own hints and ideas.

I am from the West Country and I am keen to promote local businesses and specialists. I do not take money or sponsorship for the blog, all views expressed are my own. I don’t blog every day as I work full time as a Civil Servant in London but I love to create and share when I do so.

I currently live in Bristol with a photography loving, street art enthusiast for a husband and my two cats, all three appear on the blogs at time.

15. Do you have any special talents? I am open and friendly and most people trust me in seconds of meeting me.
