Sooooo, In my last post, way back in November(!), I mentioned an amazing blog course I was taking part in, hosted by Pip Lincolne of meet me at mikes
The course has now finished (sniff)…but Pip has given us students a mini assignment/opportunity to link to her blog with an interview on ourselves. Despite life (and the small peeps) getting in the way of me actually updating my blog, this learning experience has been immense and SO gratifying. So I’m joining in, despite the lack of content as of yet.
Go sign up to Pip’s next intake. Go on! And in the meantime, humour me while I self indulge:
a bit about me (me me me me me!)
So, I’m Lynn and I live in the Peak District, a hilly hilly area in Derbyshire, England. I escaped London for the countryside after having children, and am enjoying a slower pace of life. Four days a week I get to be a full time mum to two squishy boys (aged 1 and 7), and three days a week I don my professional cap and work in social services, safeguarding vulnerable adults being mistreated by their families. My passions outside of this “proper” job are screen printing and fabric design…and all things crafty. I live to make. So I’m a bit of a mixed bag really.
favourite things to do
Drawing and designing, and making these designs into prints. Knitting and crocheting. Crafting in every spare moment. Gymming and hill walking…and trying to cram as much into life as possible. It’s tricky!
favourite place to be
Hmmmmm. Either on my sofa with my boys, or out stomping in them there lovely green hills…preferably in the wind but always with the sun on my jumper.
favourite things to eat and drink
Easy! Halloumi. Grilled. Every time.
And drink? Gin and tonic (don’t mind if I do). Sailor Jerry’s rum. Or a strong black americano.
My children inspire me to be happy.
My husband inspires me to be content.
something I want to know more about
Yikes. That’s tricky. MANY things. If I had to learn a new profession I’d study medicine. Artistically I’d like to learn letterpress.
some favourite blogs
Obviously it was meet me at mikes that got me started. I want to BE Pip Lincolne.
I love “according to matt” this guys crochet is just amazing…and his blog is so PRETTY
I blinkin’ adore Jane Foster’s blog. Her screen printing is inspiring, and so flipping cute! Cool as.
And one to watch…my friend Jo. She takes wicked photo’s but doesn’t blog enough! Like me, she’s got a lot to give but just needs to get it out there. Please drop in and encourage her at “all that you leave behind”
