How dee doo dee

I'm Lisa and have had my corner of blogspace for quite a few years now. 

I started making stuff as soon as I could cut and stick things. When I was little I made clothes for my dollies, then I moved on to making clothes from the fabric I designed and printed at art college. Although I still made clothes for myself in my twenties I was busy with lots of other things too.

I've done all sorts of stuff from waitressing at Masonic Lodges to working for the Metropolitan Police. Cleaning toilets and serving food in hospitals to being a Manager at a Fine Art and Antiques PR firm before trying my hand at Advertising as a Production Assistant.
I worked as a Psychiatrists Secretary while I took my post-grad to become an English lecturer.
Then my body clock screamed I want a baby now so I became a full-time mumma.

Moving from Brighton to Norfolk it wasn't long before my second daughter joined us. Being a mum gave me time to fully re-discover my creative passion again.  I started making my own designs and soon I was taking small commissions. I've sold my work at markets and online, set up a creative markeplace for other makers, ran workshops and generally enjoyed making for my family and I.

I've taught myself to knit, crochet, quilt and embroider, alongside learning more and more about dressmaking which is my first and absolute passion.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
