For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in crafting of some sort or 
another, hence the name Craftyhazelnut! As a child I was often ill and off school, so my 
time was often taken up with some form of crafting – embroidery, knitting, sketching 
and anything that involved cutting and sticking.
As an adult, for a few years, with work commitments, etc., crafty things fell into the 
background a bit, but until fairly recently I always had some knitting, crocheting or 
cross stitching on the go.  Cross stitching is how I got into cardmaking, then I started 
to produce cards on the computer and then papercrafting itself about twelve years ago, 
mainly cardmaking, but I also do some scrapbooking, altering etc. About 18 years ago, 
I early retired from teaching because of ill-health. Crafting is such a good way of 
relaxing and trying to forget about the aches and pains! I find that entering challenges 
keeps me up to date with trying new things that perhaps I wouldn’t otherwise try. I sell 
cards to raise money for charities – this includes Christmas cards, so I need to make 
a lot throughout the year, which is why I started my own Christmas challenge blog.

This week, our challenge is "On the Move." 

Here are some samples made by our team to help get you thinking! :-)
