Hi, I'm Denise Parkes, the creator of Crafty DIYer, and I absolutely love decoupage! In fact, it's more than just a hobby for me – it's a passion that I've had since I was a little girl crafting with my mom. I still remember those pre-Internet days in the 70s when we spent hours crafting together without any distractions from cell phones or the digital world.

As you can tell from my name, I'm a huge fan of crafting and DIY, but decoupaging and mixed media hold a special place in my heart. You will find my style of teaching easy to follow, with clear instructions and encouraging  you to have fun while creating. I can't wait to share my skills and knowledge with you and help you create beautiful, one-of-a-kind items you will be proud of!
