What should we put in our ‘About’ pages?   Too much can appear like you’re full of yourself and too little may look as if you don’t have enough to say to keep people interested.  I’m opting for some basic facts with a few ‘what I enjoy‘s’ thrown in and hope it’s enough to keep you reading and, hopefully, visiting again.

So, I’m Vanessa and I’m really glad you’re here looking round.  I am…

A mother of five – 2 sons, 3 daughters,  and a Nanny to two – one of each.

A student with the Open University studying for a psychology degree.

A newbie crafter 😁

An administrator taking care of the paperwork for my husband’s (our) groundworks business.

A spiritual director/prayer guide and team member for a spiritual formation course.

A facilitator for Peaced Together, a course to help women move from a place of brokenness to beauty.

I enjoy…

Crafting in the form of Folk Art, Mosaics, Machine and hand embroidery, Sewing, Knitting, Crocheting, Card making.

Family get-togethers, especially impromptu BBQ’s, eating out, and drinking lovely wines while in good company.

Running (ahem!!!), when I can get off my butt to do so, I really enjoy the fresh air and the sense of having done something good for my wellbeing – I just don’t do it often enough, oops!

I’m looking forward to…

Getting to know you all.

Perfecting the crafts I’ve recently learnt about, learning  new ones and sharing them with you.
