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.

Starting Again

Well it's been a while and so much has happened.

You may well notice the name change, still with an Alice-theme and now I'm slowly working with my sister to try new crafts, new ideas and see what comes of it. My etsy shop name has also changed to Painting My Roses Red and I am yet to get that up and running, I am in no rush, just taking it slow. This time round my sister and I will both be making items. As I am dealing with the loss of my mother to cancer things are slow and I'm not quite 'with it' at times. She loved crafting and so do me and my sister so we will carry on, I just haven't been overly creative of late...some months now only doing odd bits, perhaps spring will change all that!

One of the reasons for the change was a fresh start. Since I had flagged a bit with my crafts and with various life events I couldn't keep etsy going. I'm slowly getting some inspiration back...it is slow. I have learnt the basics of crochet so that will be a theme when the shop is running.

Keeping going with other plans and interests, my new therapy website is up and running and I am back on the family history case...mainly sorting through lots of notes!

So whilst I endeavour to have things happening and getting myself motivated I am well aware it will take time...patience is a virtue!

  1. Lovely new name:) I'm glad you and Jen are doing it together. I think it'll kind of keep your mum's love of craft going if you know what I mean. Shall see you over on Etsy... Hope you're ok. xxx
