Welcome to Paint Sew Glue Chew.  My little corner of the internet.  Thankyou for stopping by.  Grab a coffee (or something stronger) and have a wander.

Who am I?

Hi I’m Diana, a compulsive blogger living in london, blogging about simple crafts, recipes, design and anything that interests me.

I have 2 (sometimes) completely awesome children.  Jamie is 12 and Abbi is 10. They pop up a lot in this blog.

I’m (ahem) 40. ish, and am married to the long suffering Mr PSGC.  We met at University and have been together for over 20 years.  Thats a lot of crafting and diy that he’s had to put up with.  Unsurprisingly he is slightly more enthusiastic about the recipe aspect of my blogging. 


How did it all start? (I hear you cry)

I love handmade, and always have a number of sewing, crafting or arty projects on the go. I started this blog to document the random things I make, especially with my kids.

They were initially a little reluctant to appear “on screen” but tears, tantrums (from me) and lots of bribery soon changed that.

I have become addicted to blogging. (If this continues, I may have to get help). My favourite aspect other than the crafting, is the amazing comments and emails from people who visit my blog. I can still hardly believe that anyone out there actually reads it.


Why would anyone read it?

When I first started blogging, I really didn’t think anyone would. (and I’m not sure anyone has read some of my earlier posts).

I try not to take myself too seriously, and hope that comes across in my blog. I have no major crafting or artistic tallents – Just truckloads of enthusiasm.

I blog about all the things I like making. They are fairly random, and most require fairly low skill levels. You can copy slavishly, or maybe they will inspire you to make something else. I’d love to hear about anything you’ve made as a result of this blog.

I show you the fails as well as the success stories. Hopefully you can have the occasional chuckle while reading along.


But enough about me……I’d love to hear about you……

I love reader comments and emails (I mean really love!), and I reply to each and everyone. Though when I’m busy, it may take a while. Drop me a line any time.
