{ A bit about me }

I love making stuff :)

In my other life, I'm a software designer, but in my 'real' life I love to create. I've taken a few drawing and design courses over the years but never put them to good use until a couple of years ago, when I was just totally overcome with the urge to 'make stuff'.

Now I'm into everything: cards and stationery (my lifelong love!); jewelry; journals; collage; ATCs. You name it, and I've probably made it!

I've been selling my work locally for a while now, so I think it's time to try a wider audience.

I'm inspired by so many artists. Some of my current favourite sources of inspiration are:

* Kristina Contes (http://soundsofscience.blogspot.com/)
* Audrey Hernandez (http://www.smallcreations.blogspot.com/).

I'm always finding new sources of inspiration, especially here on Etsy!


{ A bit about my shop }

I love the things I make and I hope you will too. If you can't find quite what you're after, please contact me - I'm more than happy to make something especially for you!

Why's my shop called "9 Coaches Waiting"? It's the name of a favourite novel of mine that I first read as a teenager. It's a modern Gothic set in a French chateau in the 1950s - very fun in a retro kind of way. It's by Mary Stewart and has recently been republished - you can find it on Amazon if you're curious!


{ A bit about ordering }

Just a reminder that all Etsy prices are in US dollars.

While I don't expect there to be any issues, if you have any problems with your order, please let me know before leaving your feedback so I can get it all sorted :)
