About me

Location North East, United Kingdom
Introduction Firstly, thanks for stopping by! I like to keep my hands busy (also the old brain active) with papercrafting being a particular favourite and a craft I always return to, but I also love to try out most things crafty-wise. Knitting, sewing, crochet, dressmaking and cross stitch also feature frequently over the years, beading is a relatively new favourite together with kumihimo, micro macrame and jewellery making. I've dabbled a little in cake decorating, not had any tuition but my efforts have been appreciated by the recipients, so I must be doing okay - lol! If you like what you see, it would be nice to leave a comment, hopefully you'll call back soon, 'til then take care and enjoy life! Just in case you were wondering about 'Particularly Purple' - I love all pinks, lilacs and so on - you've guessed it my all-time favourite colour is purple!
Favorite Movies Les Miserables, Mamma Mia, Pirates of the Caribbean, Stardust, old hollywood musicals and anything that makes me laugh. Oh yes - I've a very soft spot for Disney films too!
Favorite Music Anything that appeals at the time but have some favourites - Michael Ball, Cliff Richard, Michael Buble, Katherine Jenkins, Queen, Meatloaf, Celine Dion, Abba, Billy Joel, Alfie Boe, Abba, Katie Melua... as you can see it's quite a mixed bunch!!!
Favorite Books Harry Potter, the Twilight series, historical novels and biographies/autobiographies, and from childhood - Heidi, Little Women etc
