Perpetual daydreamer, aspiring mixed-media artist, some time bead designer, haphazard art journaller, knitter of jazzy socks, slave to one demanding Siamese cat - take a peek into a little of my creative (and not so creative) life.
I thought you might be amused to see what Mia's latest addiction is ...... she has developed a taste now, not only for paper balls, but for balls of wool as well. I've had to hide away as much as I can but the little madam has still managed to ferret some out through a small gap under the lid of a plastic box I was storing it in! I was wondering at how quiet Mia was when I walked into our bedroom and there on the floor was the tangled remains of what had once been a beautiful skein of sock yarn.
Oh, and the tape measure is another of Mia's favourite toys - it WAS mine until she sneaked it off me one day and now it's hers and spends its days being dragged up and down the stairs and brought to our feet whenever she particularly wants us to play with her!
My name is Heather and I share a home by the seaside with my very lively and demanding siamese cat, Mia. I enjoy the creative life and have experimented with different crafts over the years. One of my biggest passions has been beadwork for which I received a City and Guilds qualification and also had a book (Beading) published. I've since discovered a love for other forms of art, mostly involving getting messy with paints and inks - artist trading cards, altered books, mixed media, collage and most recently, art journalling. Here on my blog I'd like to share with you some of my artwork and hope you enjoy looking.
