About

If you're familiar with a feeling when you want to escape the daily routine by locking yourself away in your crafty corner, creating things that give you joy - this blog should be right up your street. 

Godiva's Dream is home for beautiful crafts, thus, first and foremost, I aim to inspire (and we all need some inspiration every now and then). Have you ever been stumped for ideas on what kind of card to make for someone's birthday or how to add finishing decorative touches to your celebrations? I know I have and it wasn't always easy to find the right kind of inspiration for my projects, this is why I decided to start this blog.

Countless times I've been asked about what colour combinations to use for colouring stamps, how to personalise a project without making it banal, how to package small gifts or treats to make them look special - all this information I've learnt through trial and error (which was fun, but quite time consuming) and I've decided it's high time to share this knowledge with you, crafty folk. 

I am Godiva's Dream and Godiva's Dream is me. Who is this "me" I hear you asking. The "me" is Margarita, a thirty something English linguist by education, creative crafty soul by choice, fan of fantasy, music and Halloween. Born and raised in Lithuania, I moved to the UK in my mid twenties and this is where I (a little unexpectedly) fell head over heels into paper crafting. It all started with a very simple Halloween rosette banner and I haven't looked back since.

This is exactly how Godiva's Dream came about, I wanted to share my crafty things with others not only in person, but online as well.
