A fresh start..

Its been 3 months since I moved to the picturesque town of Hebden Bridge, nuzzled in the valleys of West Yorkshire. It’s been a dream of mine to move here since my now husband brought me here on a date years ago and I fell in love with it..I love it so much he even proposed to me here. As soon as the moving van had left, I had settled in and I unpacked at the speed of light. The scenery, the walking and the slower pace of life suits me and gives my mind the space it needs to focus on my creativity. Working from home took a little getting used to, but now the peacefulness with only Denny (my tiny but big spirited dog) and the birds (which constantly seem to dance in front of my window) is a recipe for a productive day.

We moved house just before Christmas so I had just one day to get my studio in working order with my Christmas orders piling up. My studio takes up the attic and it’s great to have more space and different areas to do my making, glazing, jewellery making and order packing. Denny loves it as the sun streams in all day which means lots of sunbathing for him! The wonderful Giulia Zonza from On Love and Photography¬†came to visit and took some pictures of my new space and of me in action..
