What's an Oatcake and why is it Inside Out?

As a freelance Copywriter and Proofreader I'm used to being my own boss. However, as much as I love making lovely words I also enjoy making lovely things. So, I decided it was time to set up my own Etsy shop and divide my time between creating with words and creating with my hands.

The question I'm asked most often is 'What's an Inside Out Oatcake'? Well, here in North Staffordshire we enjoy floaty, fluffy fried oat-based delights a bit like a pancake but better. Except, unlike many of my true Stokie friends, I enjoy my oatcakes folded the wrong way round – with the dark side on the outside. Apparently, this is unheard of in Stoke-on-Trent and it's singled me out as an oddity.

I think this insight also reflects the things I make quite well: familiar, homely but with a slight edge that sets them apart and makes everybody look twice. I make everything myself to my own designs, and take great pride in trying to create items that will last well and survive life in a real-world setting.

I love what I do, and I'm very lucky that I'm able to do it.
