Welcome to my creative space :).
If you are new to my blog... Warmest welcome! My name is Asia [nb. read something between Asher and Ashya] and I come from Poland. Asia is a Polish diminutive from Joanna, just like Bill from William :). I am married to my best friend, lovingly nicknamed MySteve, and a mum to our furry feline baby called Kropek. Both lads support my creative efforts in their own way :0. I now live in the beautiful county of Oxfordshire in the UK.
The Boss hard(ly) at work...:)
I am passionate about all things handmade and I am particularly fond of upcycling. My blog is mostly about papercrafting, card making and rubber stamping but I also like to play with mixed media and altered art, furniture decoration and handmade home decor items.
I first started my shy attempts at crafting after my wedding in 2009. It will probably sound familiar for most of the lovely brides out there, but I wanted to create a pretty handmade scrapbook with a selection :-) of our wedding and honeymoon photos. And I have simply fallen in love with scrapbooking, stamping and paper crafting ever since!
And somehow on the way, with Christmases, birthdays, weddings etc and so many people close to my heart, my passion for paper crafting has been mostly focused on card making and gift/home décor items. Occasionally I make things for sale and to order - let me know if you're interested to find out more.
To follow my blog (I would be delighted if you did!), simply join the site via one of the Followers buttons on the right. And if you check the top of the sidebar, you will find my social media icons so can track me down there too!

When I create, I always try to tell a story through my projects, hoping to show the emotions behind my little works of art :-). I love experimenting with different things and new techniques but my style of crafting is usually quite rich, feminine and with a vintage and shabby chic flavour.
I am really fortunate to be one of the Design Team members for two fantastic craft manufacturers: Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I am also a part of the Bloggers Outreach Program for DecoArt.
My blog is my little diary where share my creative makes as well as technique and project tutorials. I usually blog about once or twice a week. I also regularly post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L's blog, where once a month I also share a full project tutorial.
In the past I have also designed for:
Let's Ink It Up - online challenge blog
Sentimental Sundays - online challenge blog
My work has been featured in:
So... make yourself comfortable and enjoy! And if you have any questions, feel free to contact me, I'm always only one click away!
