Hello and thank you for popping in to see me! 
So I'll stop being rude and I will introduce myself 😊 My name is Emma and my story (crafting story not life, don't worry, you'd be here all day if I wrote that) anyway, my story begins in 2015 when I gave birth to my second baby boy. Although delighted to have another healthy baby, post natal depression hit me hard.

I struggled so much having 2 children and especially with my older child who at the time was almost 2 years old. (He is now currently being diagnosed with autism, which explains things I didn't understand then) At the time, I couldn't figure out how to get anything done, I hated leaving the house because of the effort and the list of things I needed to take with me shocked me more than anything in the world. I was tired all the time, I felt ugly, and that I didn't deserve children. I was on a strong dose anti depressant which didn't feel like it did much. But one random day I was window shopping Jewelry online and found some beautiful pieces that were way out of my price range. I thought if only I could make something as beautiful as that. It struck me then, that I possibly could. I started to look into making Jewelry pieces and found resin, the pieces came out stunning, and I found when I crafted, I felt better, actually happy again for a couple of months. But I unfortunately became dreadfully allergic to resin resulting in me searching for some other way I could ease my depression. Then, I found polymer clay. I know now, it will always be a part of my life. It was the most versatile medium I had ever used and it brought me back to my childhood, using play doh. I got a set with a variety of colours and a few tools and since then I've expanded my collection and now have my own little 'work station' under the stairs where I have all my tools and my clay ready and waiting. 1 and a half years later and I've tried so many techniques, made some beautiful pieces and failed many times to.

Crafting is always something I've loved, my nan who is now an angel in heaven used to teach me so many things and she always said I had a unique talent. I never actually believed her when she was alive, but for the first time I can actually say I'm proud of what I've created and I know my nan would be to. If you've read this far, thank you so much. For listening to my story, and for just clicking on my page. I know it may sound very silly but my clay means so much to me, it's brought me calm in my chaotic life, and I put my heart and soul into every piece I make. I don't have much time during the day to craft and create, but when my children go to bed, it's my time to get creative and let my imagination go wild. I feel I've come so far, and my life is getting back to how it was. But with having 2 children and a partner working part time, money for luxuries like my clay doesn't even get thought about. So I found Patreon and hoping that just a few of you may help me to continue doing what I love. Again thank you so much for reading all this!

My rewards aren't that complex, donate whatever you like, I really appreciate anything and I honestly don't know what I can offer apart from saying thank a millions times over for believing in me.

Goals
$1 of $50 per month
My goal is just to make enough to pay for supplies, I love to try techniques with my clay that sometimes doesn't always work, resulting in me going through quite a lot of it. So my goal is to make enough that I can carry on creating each and every month without worrying I'm going to run out of supplies.
