For as long as I can remember, I have always kept myself occupied with something creative.

I don’t have any formal training, so much of what I create I make up as I go along, and adapt materials and methods to fit a home environment. Over the years, I have dabbled in painting, making leather bags, textile printing and design, and (most recently), dressmaking. 

With work and life generally getting in the way, like many people, I rarely have enough time to finish (or even start!) many ideas. So I decided to start this blog to track my progress and keep me motivated.

I hope you enjoy reading this - I have got so much from others sharing their experiences and ideas online, and would love to hear from anyone with comments and tips of their own.
