About Me

My photo
I'm Jackie and I live in the North East of England with my husband John and our Border Collie Cassie. I'm originally from Canada but emigrated to the U.K. in 1992. I work full time in I.T. but spend a lot of my spare time making greetings cards which I really enjoy.

Who I am

Well folks,

I'm Jackie and am the proprietor of Crafti Cardz.  I started creating handmade greetings cards on a whim really and have since realised I'm actually quite good at it.

I spent some time off work last year through illness and the more I recovered, the more bored I became with daytime TV.

My mum reminded me that I used to enjoy doing ceramics and maybe I should try and find a craft I could do at home to keep my brain active.

I went to a  local shop and bought a few bits and pieces to get me started and decided if it wasn't for me then I hadn't really spent a lot.

I found myself really enjoying what I was doing and started building up a stock of cards for all occasions.

I soon found my 'style' and have recently started visiting the local craft fares with my cards which I also enjoy immensely.

There is now a web-site and business cards and although I may never become a millionaire through my card making, I get great satisfaction from what I do.


  1. Hello Jackie! *waves*
    Will you pop a permanent link to your site on the right hand column? That way I can easily find your cards!

  2. Very nice Jackie! I am Pats friend Maddie from across the pond in Michigan!
