About Me

A vegetarian hippy goth with a fashion degree, who works for a bead company and still likes a touch of glamour and the strange...

I love handmade items, livejournal, stand up alternative comedy, obscure geeky things, books, textures and colour...

And too many full stops...

And I love private swaps. Just ask :o)

Favorite Music

I also like music festivals and have been to Glastonbury and Download...

Favorite Television

Dr Who, Father Ted, Red Dwarf, Supernatural, Torchwood, CSI, NCIS, Masterchef, Man vs Wild...

Favorite Movies

Little Shop of Horrors, Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Italian Job...

Favorite Crafts

I went to university to study fashion and textiles design. In particular I studied surface decoration, and multimedia textiles with some machine and hand embroidery, papermaking, collage...

I also knit and crochet. For a few years I was a self employed dressmaker... I now work for a bead and jewellery making supplies company...

Comment: Thanks for your comments. You asked what herbs I'm planting; basil and Mexican tarragon. I've never had the tarragon before but it tasted nice in the garden shop & I thought it would make a nice addition to my tea.
Response: I've never grown tarragon. Sounds interesting though. How cool! Good luck :)
