Me

It's Summer!!!...I will be out in my garden not in my craft room :) Will back in full swap swing once the rain returns! In the mean time PM me for anything vital. Thanks

Call me what thou will but mainly I go by Becca/Bee/Birdie/ or if I've been especially naughty you can give me the full Rebecca :s I am 28 and live in Nottingham, UK with my fiance Christopher and our kitty Jarvis. I am annoyingly optimistic and cheery most days and on the other days I listen to The Smiths and swear a lot. I like hugging trees and people and will often do so even if they don't ask. I'm a comic book collecting, star trek watching super geek who is running out of books to read. I think Tim Burton is a Genius and Joss Whedon a god-like mastermind. Some days I'm quite gothic and dark the next I can be all rainbows and love songs. Apparently I'm "two-thirds Tinkerbell, One third Wednesday Adams" completely away with the fairies with a dark side.

I'm a girl and I play WOW :)

Jarvis :)

I can't wait to use them all, especially the eye lashes and trinkets. The skull and crossbones charm is going on my cat's collar as I just bought her a pink collar with skulls and crossbones on it!
