Meet Karen Clare

Craft has been a passion of mine since childhood, fun and enjoyable and a comfort blanket through difficult and challenging times, as it is with so many others.
It’s a great pleasure to be on Sam’s design team, she has such clever and intricate designs which always excite the team.
I see no boundaries when experimenting with craft and I mainly focus on paper craft and mixed media which has endless possibilities.
I’ve run successful craft classes for several years now and more recently been able to hold these at my home in Swanley, Kent. I like nothing more than to share craft with others, teaching and inspiring.
I find it very hard to choose a favourite piece but I particularly like lockable box Sam designed as I’d never seen anything like it in MDF before and I used a rather gorgeous pot pourri amongst other things to decorate it.

Hello All,

I posted yesterday on Facebook and since then I have been messaged by a few people asking what i would pick 3D printer wise. So i thought i would share this here and there incase anyone is interested.

These are my opinions only and i would 100% recommend anyone do their own research before purchasing a 3D printer. There are lots of other brands out there, Anycubic and Creality were two other brands i looked at, but for me Elegoo always seem to be slightly ahead or the same specs for less money and they have a great reputation in the industry.

If i couldn’t have got the Saturn, I would have gone for the Mars 2 pro, however the mars 2 is just as good if you want to save some pennies, the main differences between these two, are the pro has a very marginly bigger build area, has air filtration, has aluminum vat and knobs rather than plastic and a few more bits. None affect the quality of the models that come off though as both have the same light source/screen.

I would not go for the Mars (not linked) as the improvements between that and the 2 were quite a jump, including the much better mono screen and its all about the screen with these machines ? (well kinda lol)

I have linked the two mentioned below on Amazon as this is the best price i found, especially as a prime member and today being the last day of prime deals you get a chunk off, in fact with your savings you can get a bottle of resin for the printer and still have change from the normal price
Hope this helps (remember the prime member prices are only whilst prime day is on!)

Mars 2 £200 – £152 if prime member
