I love everything crafty and have been very lucky to try first hand many types of crafts.  I am hoping to challenge myself by reusing or re-purposing as much of my own waste as possible - Check out my Crafty Challenge page for ideas.

I am a maker of allsorts and will try my hand at anything, such as the Flat Earth a customer was desperate to obtain but couldn't find.  My main work is decorating real eggs in gouache paint, and weaving.  Please take time to browse as there are many crafts and items to explore.

For those interested, CJ's Crafts is compiled from my first initial (C), my late hubby and children's middle names all begin (J) and a Jay is my favourite bird.  (Crafts) covers all, as I enjoy to make well.... all things crafty.  Hence CJ's Crafts was born.  The colour and stripes are the Jay birds wing in close up and the hexagon is my favourite shape.

My Shepherds Hut is extremely special to me.  After my husband passed away, I had it built in his memory, so he is always with me.
