Anyway I want to share with you my love of beautiful things. I have a passion for glitter, colour and positive thinking.
I have painted and made things since I was a little girl. I remember getting little kits to make soft and furry toys with and the pleasure of assembling the different parts. I loved those silver scratchy type pictures (what were they called?) and I will never forget a rose picture made by pinning hundreds of sequins onto lush black velvet. Sequins are still a big love of mine!
I like to be busy and productive and there is nothing like the buzz of completing a project and other people enjoying your work.
I am currently at the beginning of two very big projects in my life. One is looking after my ten month old baby girl and the other is my handmade card business. I have sold my handmade cards to shops for years, but I want to take the quality up a notch and make something really special that people will want to keep and frame.
I have strong environmental concerns and I am researching recycled products at the moment to make the process as 'light' as possible. After all, a lot of my images are fairy based and I don't want my fairies having a heavy carbon footprint. That would be so wrong.
If anyone can point me in the right direction for good retailers of recycled card or ways of working that are less wasteful then that would be great!
