Following an Instagram trend throughout the month on March #marchmeetthemaker here's my contribution, although I'm afraid i haven't quite met the daily challenges,to give a little insight into Crafty Debs.
Hi my name is Debbie Frost & I live in South Devon. I've been a demonstrator for Stix2 for almost 4 years which I love. I'm also a craft tutor & I regularly run my own workshops on a variety of different topics & techniques
I live in sunny Exmouth, Devon which not only has a stunning4 mile beach but beautiful scenery & nature at the estuary where the river Exe meets the sea.
How you started
I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember but got more interested in card making when I got a job in the local craft shop (Japonica- sadly no longer open!). I then went on to win a couple of competitions in craft magazines, was a DT member for the Woodware blog & was finally approached by Stix2 to become one of their demonstrators. The rest is history!
Favourite to Make
Anything messy & mixed media with lots of texture,colour & different techniques especially canvases!
Overlooking my garden but don't look too too closely at the mess!
Can't Live Without
My trusty Stix2 Hot Melt glue gun! Always on my desk & useful for all kinds of craft techniques not to mention household repairs.
Customers & Feedback
Nothing gives me a greater buzz when I've been to one of my Stix2 demo days at one of my crafty retailers than knowing I've done a good job & everyone had a good time. So thanks to all my loyal retailer supporters!

Of course I count all those associated with Stix2 as my creative friends but we all have special ones don't we? I feel privileged to count this fine trio of ladies as my close crafty friends.
