Crumbs And Sparkles Bridal • Baby • Home • Cupcakes

I've always been arty, loving art at school, but due to moving around so much I never got the opportunity to do it as a GCSE or A level, but I feel for me, I proved those teachers wrong that said I couldn't do it!

I've always loved painting, but back in 2015 I was rushed into hospital with suspected appendicitis. During emergency surgery they found my appendix to be fine, but found a burst cyst on my ovary. So they sewed me back up for further investigation. Knowing I had more surgery soon to diagnose and treat my symptoms, I taught myself to crochet, a relaxing craft you can do whilst not doing much else!!

Not only has crochet helped me to deal with my diagnosis of endometriosis and the fact that more than likely I will have to manage the pain I suffer from the condition for the rest of my life it has also been therapy for me on bad days and coming to terms with not being able to have children.

I wanted to turn this into something as positive as I could so I started to learn other crafts to add to my portfolio and start to build a small online business. So macramé, weaving, cross stitch and a few other fibre arts have been added to my list not to mention some wedding crafts too! (I love a challenge!) I also love to bake, hence the name Crumbs and Sparkles!

So if you are local to Stevenage and fancy some yummy cupcakes as a treat or special occasion, then free to get in touch, but also I would love to hear from you if you have seen something you love and you would love to have it made unique to you, but you don't know where to start! I'll do my best to make you dream come to life ♥
