Hello, I’m Wendy, and this is the bit where I’m supposed tell you how awesome I am and how I’m so experienced at crafting and cooking.
Well, I am very good at those things but I’m also British and I am particularly rubbish at the whole “Look at me, I’m fabulous!” thing. Yes I’ve been crafting and cooking since I was little but most of us have, haven’t we? I didn’t win prizes for cutting and sticking at school, and there was no Junior Bakeoff when I was a child, but yes, cooking and crafting have always been my ‘thing’.
I am creative, inventive, and have a good imagination, and I love sharing new crafty stuff to do, and easy cooking thingies too. Yes, thingies. I like to make life easy, so some of the cooking items on this site couldn’t really be called recipes.
I do a lot of crafting and cooking with my ten-year-old craft-obsessed daughter, so I make sure there are a lot of kid-friendly things to do as well as more adult crafts and the like. When I mean more adult, I don’t mean anything involving boobies or rudeness, just things that have more adult-appeal or that are a bit tricky for little hands to do. 🙂
I’m 42, I’m married, I have one adorable daughter, I’m studying for a degree in natural sciences, and I am incredibly clumsy. I made my own wedding cake, some awesome birthday cakes, and I’ve had award-winning card designs featured in magazines. I’m a pretty good lunch packer (even the teachers at my daughter’s school comment on them), but that’s as far as I’ll go with the whole “look at fabulous me” thing.
Right, that’s enough of that. Let’s just get crafting and cooking together shall we?
