About Me

Wife. Mother. Teacher. Crafter....dreamer

Favorite Crafts

Card making, printing, online scrapbooking, sewing, knitting, baking - love it all but not particularly good at any of it!!

Favorite Movies

I'm such a child.....love the original Charlie and Chocolate Factory, Miyazaki's films - Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service etc, The Slipper and the Rose, The Wizard of Oz and Mary Poppins but also like Woody Allen films and so many others.....but not scary or violent (I might have nightmares!)

Favorite Music

Indie kid at heart and love folk music but dabble here and there; The Smiths, Camera Obscura, The Concretes, The Kings of Leon, Laura Marling, Martha Wainwright, Johnny Flynn......

Favorite Books

Like the classic childrens' stories - especially Alice in Wonderland, Chronicles of Narnia and Grimm's Tales. Love childrens' books which have been beautifully illustrated. Have enjoyed The Kiterunner, The timetravellers wife and many others. Almost forgot, I am a huge fan of Murakami.

Just general things about me

I was born in Northern Ireland; brought up on the North Antrim Coast and moved to England to go to college. Unfortunately, except for holidays, I have never returned. I now live and work on the South Coast of England with my 2 young daughters.

I like...

  • teal and mustard *light blue/turquoise and red
  • stationery - writing paper, pens etc *notebooks *sweets and chocolate
  • childrens' illustrations and stories ** handmade dolls and fabric animals
  • bright, fun and retro fabrics
  • scandinavian design
  • nature... roaring oceans, rugged coastlines, lakes, mountains, forests - you get the picture!
  • family history *japanese things esp bento boxes *boxes and tins - I like to be tidy and organised *scandinavian decor, crafts, furniture, design, Christmas *being a mum

Ellabellaboo and Izzy too

I have two daughters who would also love to receive post - email me directly for details.

I would love to correspond with mums with similar aged children (8 and 10) to organise our own personal swaps involving the children - toys, books, sweets, recipes, journals, paintings etc This would be a fantastic introduction to the world of penpals for my two. Please mail me if you're interested.

Response: I'm so glad she liked it; we wanted to send her something that she wouldn't be able to get at home. We bought all the London things from a shop on Buckingham Road - just up from the palace!!
