Welcome to the new Water Lily Wishes blog and to the first ever post – please be kind! 

Firstly let me introduce myself, I am Amanda, owner and creator of Water Lily Wishes.  I graduated from University in 2008 and moved to the big bad city of London where in the spare time from my job I was encouraged by my friends and family to start selling my handcrafted cards.  The ethos behind Water Lily Wishes is to sell simple yet high quality handcrafted cards and gift wrap without breaking your bank, you can view my creations for yourself on my website –

Alongside this I decided that it was time for me to join the 21st century and start blogging, so here I am today!   I love the world of crafting and so the aim of this blog is not only to let you know new developments within Water Lily Wishes but also for you to join me in my journey of learning new crafts.  This year I am hoping for all the gifts I give for birthdays and Christmas to be handmade, either by myself or by one of the many talented crafters out there. As I discover and learn new crafts I will share them with you and I welcome any tips you have on how I can improve!

I would also like to introduce a regular feature where I will interview a fellow crafter who is very talented within their field.  These will be people who I have personally experienced and whose service and products are second to none. 

I hope you enjoy following my journey to a DIY craft filled life!

Until next time
