Where did this magical journey start?
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I grew up crafting mostly because we had no TV. So, while other kids my age watched presenters get busy with the glue on Blue Peter and Why Don't You? I was deconstructing the contents of my wardrobe and swimming in rivers. I cut trousers into skirts, switched too big skirts into dresses and twisted bits of wooly jumpers into headbands.

One of my first creations was a crazy opera coat with faux fur cuffs and collar and an Eiffel Tower brooch made into a belt for the back. I loved it and revamping clothes became a new obsession. There's nothing quite like wearing something that no-one else has.

Where can you find me?
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
My life began in mystical, magical Tintagel, the place of Arthurian legend. Now my home is in the Midlands, UK. Tolkien Country!

The wildlife around me is one of my sources of inspiration - I share my garden with birds squirrels and foxes. I'm also often inspired by the beautiful illustrations in the books I read with my little girl, and of course the fairy world.

I Believe....
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I believe in setting your imagination free and letting your magic flow, and remembering you are someone who is amazing and magical in their own right. My creations are one way for you to shine your light!
