First things first: I would like to apologise for the overuse and misuse of my camera - I am still a state of euphoria! So, some things about me. hmmm.....
I love skirts. And tights. And boots. Despite having extra chunky legs :D Not quite sure why but I feel a little bit more classy wearing them:
I have permed hair. And its gorgeous ( well it is when I can be bothered to get up in the morning and don't just scrape it back into a bun - like today so no picture). I've also just dyed it purple - not quite sure what the system is going to make of that when I get back into school after half-term.
I love black and white photographs. I always like to look at people and wonder where they're from and whom they loved and what they did. I'm also just discovering the joy of taking black and white photos:
I'm always reading. I read a lot of fantasy books (I have a bit of a love affair with Tamora Pierce - her books I hasten to add ;) especially books retelling myths and fairy stories, and also historical novels and classics (Pride and Prejudice anyone?) Its not uncommon for me to read one or more books in a sitting. For instance, I just read the whole of Troy by Adele Geras this morning.
As well as skirts, I also love jackets. I only have two, both of which were picked up in charity shops, but I wear them all the time. Please don't get the idea though that I'm terrible girly-girly - I hardly ever wear make-up and generally get up a scant 20 minutes before the school bus goes. Here is another picture of me, showing off my delicious brown jacket.
Crafty wise I do papery stuff like cards, ATC and I would love to do more altered books and shrines. However I procrasinate a lot and spend more time looking at other peoples things than excersising my own mojo. I also crochet a lot and you'll normally find some wool and hooks in my bag (what else is the ride to school good for?). I've picked up some knitting needles and will no doubt try that at some point. I also do a bit of sewing and jewelry making - I'm very can do and will just start at the more complicated end of crafting if I see something I want to make.
Ok, so I think that might be enough about me for now. After all, if I tell all then there will be no incentive to read on will there?
Bye for now,
P.S. Who can tell me what another of my favourite book series are just from looking at my crochet basket ;)
