My name is Catherine Crompton - but most people call me Cath. I am a wife and mother to 2 great stepsons and Granny to the most amazing little girl in the world. After selling up in England some 6 years ago, I now live with my husband in North Cyprus enjoying life in the sun. I do try to get back to England at least twice a year to see the family and stock up on my crafting supplies.
My earliest memories of crafting are of "helping" my dad with his Airfix models when I was about 6years old. Since then I have tried my hand at a lot of things; silversmithing, flower arranging, crocheting, etc .And then I found paper. I loved working with paper at school: whether it was marbling, lino printing or book binding, I loved them all, but stopped when I left school and didn't find them again for another 35 years.Since rekindling my love affair with paper I opened my own scrapbooking store, but sadly I had to close it after 18 months as scrapbooking and card making are virtually unknown in Turkish culture, but I still carry on running classes in scrapbooking, card making and Altered Art.
I am a member of the Make My Monday design team. My work has featured in local arts and crafts exhibitions and I have been profiled in various local lifestyle magazines.
