About Me

I'm an avid crafter, love to make things and draw/paint. I'm married, live in the UK and have two sons. I enjoy walking in the countryside, travelling, shopping, and going to the theatre. I also love writing letters, so would love to hear from new pen pals.

Favorite Music

Love to listen to music all day long! my fave band right now is Snow Patrol, but I enjoy all sorts of music from classical to rock.

Favorite Books

Love to read and especially love the work of Jane Austen, and mordern chick-lit types of authors. Anything up-lifting! Oh, I've just started on the Twilight saga, which is excellent.

Favorite Movies

My fave movie is always the last one I saw, which, in this case, was The Proposal. Loved Twilight too.

Favorite Television

British soaps - Eastenders, Coronation Street. Also love Gavin and Stacey, Glee, and Strictly Come Dancing.

Favorite Crafts

Love stamping, sewing/embroidery, making mini books, drawing, making cards. Anything crafty!

Some of my favourite things...

I love vintage almost anything! Buttons, beads, lace, ephemera, blank tags, ribbon, interesting fibres, wool roving or slivers (for needlefelting), metal embellishments, extra large eyelets, fabric (vintage look or retro style), charms, unusual embroidery threads (love Steph Francis), flowers, birds, Marie Antoinette, art quilting, fabric postcards and ATCs, mini books and journals, Stampington magazines, amigurumi, mini felties, fruit teas, flower seeds.

My favourite colours are: Any shade of aqua through to teal, I also love any shade of purple. I don't dislike any other colour though.

I would rather not recieve:

I'm really quite easy to please, but please don't send me these: Green tea, candy (I'm diabetic), Hello Kitty or anything in that genre, coffee (don't drink it!).
