Harry's Hobby and Craft Blog

Hey! I'm Harry and I would like to offer you all a very warm welcome to my craft blog. I hope you enjoy my blog and that it inspires you to get involved in arts and crafts or to take up an old hobby which you have forgotten all about. I got into crafts because I was super stressed. I work in an investment bank in downtown Sydney and boy can it be stressful. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't come home and stick small pieces of coloured paper to a piece of cardboard every evening. Of course, I didn't always have this escape. Until my friend started to teach me about crafting, I really used to struggle to cope. I hope you enjoy my blog.
