I am a crafty person. Art teacher by trade and aspiring up-cycler, maker and mum when at home. My family moved into an ex MOD officer's house in Norwich in 2011 and since that time we have been trying to get the house from plain shabby to 'shabby chic' on a very limited budget. I like to try a bit of everything and just enjoy being creative. I like collecting and sharing ideas. If I can make it myself I will. I love a good bargain. If I can find or make something for free, even better!
