About Me

My photo
I currently live in Birmingham and come from Solihull. I have a love of all things crafty, developed from my mom's love of crafts as I was growing up. I currently work in marketing, but I'm a qualified Aromatherapist, and use to be self employed alongside a day job, might one day return to that. I try to fit in crafts when I can, I wish I had more time and money to spend on it! I enjoy researching my family history and finding out about the past. It can get frustrating, but is really rewarding when you have a break through! I hope to meet people with similar interests as me and swap advice/stories.

Preparations Continue

Well time is escaping me...as usual, and I have decided to have a simple Jubilee celebration...well I have a few foody bits to make, but hopefully nothing complicated, although I just saw another pudding dish I might make (if I have enough strawberries!)

Here's a little peak of some decorations I will be using, handmade (though not all by me.)

 These various items will adorn the flat for the Jubilee and I may well make some more, I have  various ribbons and fabrics around, if I get time I'll see what I can some up with, alongside some lovely food (fingers crossed.)

As well as food and deco, entertainment is important, so yes tv events, possible local park (if weather holds up) but also at home I'm thinking British music and film...so I have a list of possibles:

Take That, Oasis, Blur, Muse, classic rock, 60's - Cliff, Tom Jones etc

The King's Speech, Four Weddings, probably some drama/comedy too, can't beat Only Fools..oh the list goes on!
