Welcome to my blog

I created this space to fill with my creative pursuits and interests.

If you’re equally interested in scrapbooking, drawing, painting, shopping, all things beauty, books, podcasts, polka dots, pizza and maine coon cats… well, this is the place for you.

May I say, what a smashing blouse you have on

Well, this weekend didn’t turn out how I planned, although that’s no bad thing I suppose.

The original plan was to head to Brighton on Saturday for some chips, wandering, ice cream, a spot of crazy golf and a pub trip… but it rained, so that changed plans.

Instead of Brighton I decided to do something a bit more adventurous with my scrapping and try out sewing - ooooh

I haven’t done any sewing (other than the occasional shirt button) since I was at school and inadvertently sewed a part of my hand to some felt… they say no sense, no feeling… they would be correct!!

So yes, it took a little while to get going, but I was pretty proud of the end result.

Although my scrappy exploits have been a bit thin on the ground, thanks to all the sewing, I decided to do another first and that was… dun, dun duuuuuuh, a YouTube video - scary.

As someone who isn’t a fan of their own voice, face or general mannerisms, this was a bit of a tough thing to do, but I figure, if I get into a design team they’re going to want me to upload the occasional process video, so I thought, screw it, and set up a channel and uploaded a little 10 min video of the scrap from this weekend.

Feel free to check it out and leave any comments here (positive only - haha) or via Instagram and ignore my nerves, face and the fact that I lost one of my fingernails in the fridge door at work on Friday (soooo painful) - hahaha
