Can you tell us a bit more about you, where you're from, what you like? 
I’m a thirty something year old mama of three girls. We live in the hills and valleys of North Wales although i grew up in Lincolnshire. I’ve been married to my love for almost ten years. I ‘m a flower child at heart and am never happier then when I'm surrounded by nature. I love to have sand in my toes, flowers in my hair and the smell of salt air around me.

How long have you been a creative?
I’ve always created, ever since i was a horse-obsessed kiddo making stables and accessories for my little ponies! as a teenager i made jewellery and clothing for myself and friends, and as a mama I've always made things for my girlies.

What/ who inspires you?
my girls are my biggest inspiration. since becoming a mama, being true to myself has been so important – living a life that means i get to be with them all day, every day. showing them that you can follow your dreams and live the life you dream of.

You have a very sweet blog and  tweet lots of loveliness, what inspires you to have an online presence & encourages you to blog about lovely things?

i started blogging at this enchanted pixie back in 2010, mainly as an online journal of sorts. i was going through a bad bout of depression and wanted something to distract me and a place to document our life. it has grown into something so much more and i discovered how much i love blogging. i love the friends that i have made along the way, and hope that others enjoy reading a little about my life!

Do you have any favourite blogs/ websites?
gypsie sister and Lune vintage are two of my current favourites.

Have you got a picture of your workspace? (Drawings accepted!)
here -

How does your workspace help you to be creative?
my workspace, though tiny, is my little haven. i can step inside and feel like I'm in my own little world. I'm surrounded my inspiring images and jars of beads, buttons and ribbons. It feels like a sanctuary full of creative vibes – as soon as i sit at my little desk i can feel the urge to start making.

What's on your most awesome playlist?
Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, The Band, Bob Dylan – i often think i was born in the wrong era!!!
