Liz's Profile

Allow me to introduce myself.

*Ahem*

Hi, my name is Liz, I come from a family of 6, and grew up on a farm in central New South Wales, Australia. I've always liked doing/making things with my hands. I had a couple of Aunties when I was younger who I think helped facilitate this by giving us lots of arty/crafty presents when we were kids.

I'm really particular about the quality of my cases, and I won't let anything into my shop that I wouldn't be happy to buy myself. I like to use high-quality materials, and each item is thoroughly checked for quality. I can't stand even one stitch being out of place, and I'd feel like I was cheating if I didn't do it properly.

I like to use high-quality materials, and each item is thoroughly checked for quality. I can't stand even one stitch being out of place, and I'd feel like I was cheating if I didn't do it properly.

At the moment I'm quite into bright cheery colours, with contrasting accents and nice simple clean lines. Most of my work has a bit of a retro-modern feel to it.

A few random facts about me:

1. When I was a child I had an irrational fear of volcanoes and quicksand.

2. I learnt to drive a tractor before I learnt to drive a car.

3. When I was 5 years old I was obsessed with the colour red. I had a red school bag, money box, lunch box, bathers (I even bought the exact same pair when I grew out of the first ones), pencil case, barbie doll clothes, toothbrush, dress....etc etc

4. I work in stem-cell research, but dream of being a handbag and textile designer.

5. I did piano lessons for 5 years but never learnt to read music properly.

6. I can say the alphabet backwards without having to think about which letter comes next. This resulted from me proudly announcing to my Dad that I could say the alphabet and Dad being the smart alec that he is, said "I bet you can't say it backwards", So I practiced until I could do it. I bet he wasn't expecting that - ha!

7. I'm fussy about which magnets get to go on the fridge.

8. I have a rather long tongue and can touch past my nostrils and can also touch my chin with it.

9. When I got my first tape recorder a couple of friends and I decided to start a rock band called the "Wildcats". We only knew the words to Christmas carols so that was what we sang.

10. I have chewed my fingernails ever since I can remember. Occasionally I will make an effort to grow them once or twice a year and make everyone admire how long they've gotten.

11. I hate peas.

12. I can still remember 2 dreams I had when I was about 3 years old in vivid detail. I also have a recurring dream about maths exams which I have once every couple of weeks.

13. I always have an escape plan. I like to imagine hypothetical situations and figure out how I would escape from them. I have escape plans for for home intrusions, deadly pandemics, alien invasions, armaggeddon style asteroids, you name it.
