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.

Everyone has those 'mental block' moments and struggle to find a way to express themselves, sometimes for no apparent reason and sometimes because life throws a curve ball and we don't know where to turn.

Currently I have several 'curve balls' so it can take its toll. I have temporarily stopped selling crafts and taken a step back whilst dealing with other things, but I still have creative bursts every now and then. I have various craft ideas and blog ideas, as well as my holistic therapies. I find a great way to 'store' ideas is simply writing them down, keeping a record/sketch of whatever it is you are thinking of and then when your ready to carry on you have that store of ideas. It's also great looking at others and their creative designs/plans and tips to inspire you.

Recently I have found a lot of people using quotes and images to express themselves and I think this also a great method- sometimes you yourself can't put into words how you feel or maybe just see a quote that really applies. Here I've found some that seem appropriate to me right now.
