8. Tell me a bit about you... I am a young creative woman, from the south east of England, who loves to experiment with crafting out of recycled items. I enjoy thinking about how i can reuse items and alter them to create unusual but beautiful objects. I live by the motto reduce, reuse, recycle. I refuse to accept any new plastic bags and if i’ve forgotten to take my own cloth bag with me, i’ll simply carry the items out of the shop in my arms! I reuse every thing i can; plastic food trays as drying racks, cereal boxes and medication boxes for ATC backs and bottlecap backgrounds, the bottlecaps, Hard disks as mirrors and anything i can’t reuse gets recycled if possible.
I am a great animal and nature lover and take great pleasure in growing my own vegetables. My favourite website currently is www.swap-bot.com which is another extention of my great enthusiasm for art and craft.
