So Here I am... :)


I didn't think I'd ever get round to writing a blog - and here I am.

So what do you wanna know people?

Some of you may know me well already - from AFA, flickr, etsy, life in general :) Ok, so most of you haven't a notion, lets see if I can make this interesting.
Here goes....

My name is Tanya, I'm Northern Irish hailing from County Down where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea (you may know the song). I'm currently living in the middle of the Ireland in the midst of lush green fields and grazing animals, cows, sheep, goats... if it likes chewin' the cud it's here in the midlands.

I'm married to a wonderful man, for nearly five years now - woo. We are 10 years together as a couple in October. He is my love. I'll have to figure out some other name for him - he dosen't want the world to know who he is. Fair enough.

My other loves are - Mitzi Doodle our beloved pooch, Susie Sussex, Henrietta Leghorn, Buddy Boo and Biddy Anne - the hens, otherwise known as 'the girls'. We eat their eggs for breakfast, tea and dinner - yum :) Their yolks are really yellow as they eat lots of good stuff besides the regular meal. Susie likes porridge, Buddy loves Orange, Henrietta adores potatoe and Biddy Anne can tuck into just about anything, We are not going to eat them.

I create bespoke wedding stationery for a living but I'm most happy creating art. Mixed media would be my favourite medium but I also like to doodle whimsical characters and crazy little houses. Maybe one of these days I'll do something constructive with them - my dream is to illustrate a childrens book one day.
