Who is Peggy?
Peggy, also known as Peggy-Sue or Peggles, is my dog. She is a Basset Hound x Beagle (or Bagle) and is both the most infuriating but loveable creature there is.
Who are you then?
I am Kim, a one time art student who moved from a sleepy Suffolk village to the dizzying heights of Norwich. I live with Rory, my soon to be hubby in a little terraced house in the city. We are getting married in August 2013.
With us live 2 cats and an unruly dog.
What do you do?
For my day job, I am a primary school teacher. I teach Year 3; it can be the most rewarding, stressful, exhausting and entertaining job there is.
Luckily for me, I get the school holidays (and yes, us teachers certainly DO earn it!). In the holidays, and when I can find time at the weekend and in the evening, I enjoy many different crafty pursuits. I recently taught myself to crochet; I also sew, design, draw, paint...you name it I do it. Apart from knitting. My hands can only handle one tool at a time! Rory is also an artsy-craftsy chap. He has recently become hooked on cross-stitch. He's pretty bloody good at it too!
Why did you choose to write a blog?
I have spent years reading blogs; everything from crafts to fashion to photography to food. I love being nosey and finding new things. It's where I get my main sources of inspiration. I decided to blog myself as I felt I was missing the artsy community that I was in the middle of at art school; not just the arty side of things, the general buzz about the quirky and individual. Hopefully, in time, something I post could inspire somebody else to try a new project. Maybe that will never happen, but at least I have said I tried. x
