This week I’m taking part in #justacardweek @justacard
because I know how important support is (especially at this time of year) and it’s a great way of getting to know small businesses and sharing our stories 🎨
So today is ten facts about me:
1) I have a wire haired sausage dog called Otto (the lil chap I’m snuggling in the photo). He has barked about 5 times in his whole life and he’s a little gem. He’ll be 1 in January.
2) my birthday is on Christmas Day and I LOVE it.
3) I started Cardiff university studying medicine in 2014 (I’d be in my final year now!) but it was 100% not for me and I wanted to follow my heart and doodle forever.
4) I work from a studio at my parents house. They converted their double garage for me and it’s the best thing ever.
5) I got married back in 2017. He’s the best✨I did our cake, invites, table plan, dessert table, order of service and loads more and it was the BEST thing ever to plan.
6) I would love another dog but I’m not allowed. I’ll crack him one day. Otto needs a little brother.
7) I re write my to do list at work about 5 times every day because it makes sense in my head that way..
8) I win a lot of things. I won a pair of amazing @aceandtate
glasses a few years back in a competition and they are still going strong (they are also in this photo), I won a @bobbinbicycles
BIKE and it’s yellow and it’s amazing. I also won a @louisvuitton
phone case.. maybe I should start playing the lottery?
9) I have pledged to shop small this Christmas wherever I can. There are loads of small independent goodies on my to do list too.
10) I sometimes make cookies purely because I want to eat the dough.
