I really kicked off making things as a hobby whilst I was at university. It helped to distract from living in a relatively mad house and reduce my stress prior to exams. I loved my Textiles GCSE before that, but never really made things in my spare time as much.
Since working full time and continuing to take exams for professional qualifications, I find it relaxing to be able to take my mind off things and focus on what I’m making instead. I like being able to make gifts, for birthdays and christmas, and am now really pleased that friends and family are asking for handmade gifts rather than me imposing handmade items on them!
If you want to know more about anything I’ve made then please get in touch. I also take orders for some of the items featured on my blog – please see the orders page!
