In a nutshell – Female Pagan, animal lover, maker of shiny things and destroyer of bubble wrap. Oh yes, and a bit of a potty mouth. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I was born with Spina Bifida and I’m a full time wheelchair user. This has brought me moments of utter hilarity and intense frustration in equal measures and continues to do so. I’m not a ‘disability blogger’ but some of my experiences can definitely go in the file marked ‘You couldn’t make this shit up!’ and I’ll share those moments with you from time to time.
In 2010 I graduated from Bath Spa University with a Foundation Degree in Applied Art and Design. After three years of producing work to fulfill the criteria of a third party, I decided to was time re-learn the art of being creative for the sheer fun of it. Making jewellery is immense fun and I must confess that making pretty things rapidly lead to a slight obsession with beads…..ok, a BIG obsession.
If you’d like to visit me at ‘The Charming Stoat‘ you can see exactly what I do with all manner of shiny and colourful things. Should you be overtaken by the urge to purchase any of these items, I won’t complain ;)
I’m a tad obsesses with Natural History and like to disappear with my binoculars and my camera when the weather permits (rain and wheelchairs are not happy bed fellows, trust me on this).
And I like Stoats. A lot.
