Packaging and shipping and writing you all thank you notes for ordering my very first calendar! It’s been surreal to have the calendar in my hands and ship it off to all of you! ❤️ If you haven’t ordered yours, the links are in my bio for the LAST pre-order! 🙌🏼
Ok so I’ve tried to take part in these challenges before and failed miserably! But this one is by @justacard and their message is super important so I’m going to try my best to find the time to keep up each day! The #justacard campaign supports independent makers and artists and the 1st day of their challenge is “10 facts about me”. Not guna lie I have seriously struggled to think up 10 things about myself that you guys might find interesting but here goes....! 1 - My hubby and I first started going out when we were 14 years old!
2 - I went to law school
3 - Only after starting my little business did I realise I’ve never actually enjoyed “work” before
4 - I drink approximately 1000 cups of tea each day
5 - I’m unhealthily obsessed with my baby girl and I have no idea what I did with myself before I had her
6 - I know every episode of Friends off by heart - literally every word - and I still laugh at all the jokes
7 - I love to learn how to do new things - usually by watching YouTube videos!
8 - I make THE BEST chocolate truffles in the world and will take the recipe to my grave
9 - Ive written a children’s book that ONE DAY I will get up the courage to publish
10 - I honestly believe Espresso martinis are the best thing ever invented. If you’ve never tried one - do so immediately 😋
As I come around the bend with the finish line for my next book in my sights (or at least, the finish line of this part of the creative process... with final edits only happening after baby arrives), I’m finding that each and every time I receive an email, comment or private message relating to one of my books, I pause in gratitude even more than before. 🙏🏻 Maybe it’s because I’m so deep in this book, envisioning who will read it, which paragraphs may end up being highlighted (as I always love to do), and who will hopefully benefit the most from these sentences I’m crafting, these words I’m polishing... or maybe it’s just because it’s still surreal and wonderful to know my books are on your shelves and in your hearts. ♥️ When I received a message from the beautiful @gabivann telling me she randomly came across my book, You Are Enough, in a tiny bookstore in South Africa, and that she’s highlighted huge sections of it, and written pages and pages of notes... I asked her if I could share this photo with you all. ♥️ I’m keeping this close to my heart as I read through the last few chapters of my next book before sending it off to my publisher. It’ll be on shelves sometimes next year, friends. I can’t wait (but I will 😂). Xo
#Day 1 of #justacard 10 things about me. @justacard
1. I detest having my photo taken.
2. I share my space with my 11yr old, home educated son, and our dog Mab, a staffy/sharpei cross .
3. I live in a housing cooperative in Liverpool with 16 other adults and 9 other children, plus 3 other dogs, goodness knows how many cats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, & terrapins.
4. I have been crocheting over 30 years.
5. I don't remember how to knit... When I have a spare mo, I do plan to relearn.
6. I also enjoy drawing, painting and printmaking - tho most of my time is taken up home edding my son or crocheting.
7. I initially started selling my makes so I could buy more indie dyed yarn.
8. I have a literal wall of yarn.
9. I'm pagan.
10. I'm an introvert. I enjoy company and I am equally happy on my tod.

3 things you should know:
[ 1 ] 🌵MSC is Texas-based until Spring 2019, but I work with clients all over North America 🌎(and beyond).
[ 2 ] 💁🏼♀️ In a single day, 6 random people throughout my errands asked where I got these earrings - by @cristycalijewelry.
[ 3 ] 🚫 DO NOT let your hot-rod curling iron touch your neck, you’ll be scarred. Apparently mine reaches over 400 degrees, noted… hence, the 2-year old scar.
OK, 4 things. 🥧 Pumpkin pie is my all-time favorite thing in this world, and I could eat an entire one in a sitting. Excited for Thursday.
