Designer Saturday: Claire Simpson

01/06/13

This week we are thrilled to be introducing you to Claire Simpson! Read on for more bout her, in her own words:

My name’s Claire Simpson but everyone knows me as Clairebears, it’s the nickname I have grown up with and I love it! I’m coming up to 42 and I’m married and have a wonderful daughter and 2 furbabies (my cats) and dinners are nearly always burnt as I tend to get a little carried away sometimes!

I can’t remember ever starting to craft and I think I must have been doing it for as long a I can remember, even as a child I can remember cutting up bits of paper to make my Sindy’s clothes. I love colouring and always have, I must have been the only child to have a colouring book where all the pictures where coloured in with different colour stripes and all the stripes had to be in the same order – heaven help a pen run out!

I still have to have my pens and pencils in colours order too! I have tried most crafts from Cross Stitch and Jewellery making but found and fell in love with papercrafting and haven’t really looked back. I’m at my happiest when I’m getting inky and you can’t see the floor or desk for bits! I love the Crafter’s Companion products and can’t quite believe I am lucky enough to be on their team. I now have my dream job!

We are so thrilled Claire has joined our team, and cannot wait to share more of her work with you!
