Punky Spotlight on..............Cheryl W!

Hello to all you Punky scrappers out there! I'm Cheryl from andhandmadetoo, DT member 'Punky Dudette', and I'm here today to tell you a little bit about myself.

Scrapbook Challenges sketch #261

I'm 29, a freelance editor, and I live in Brussels, Belgium, with  my talented, musical husband and our adorable but sometimes infuriating dog.

Instagram-inspired for True XOXO Girls

I love working from home, as it means I get to go for long walks with the dog (when he's not being lazy, that is).

I also get to spend time in my study/craft room. You'd think that working in my craft room would be a distraction, but no - in fact, crafting in my office makes sure I keep it tidy!

Big news - I just got married!

 ...actually, already nearly 3 months ago - how time flies! And that means I spent most of this year making handmade wedding things. Now that's all over, I get to scrap wedding photos.

Crafting is therapy for me - I can honestly say that since we moved from the UK to Belgium, and I changed from working in an office to having more time to craft, I have been so much happier.

Being a part of Punky Scraps team has broadened my horizons even more, allowing me to let go of my hang ups about style, about products, about the industry - I'm far from reaching any destination yet, but I'm loving the journey.

A few random facts about me:

  • I can't create until I've tidied up - sometimes the whole house. But I refuse to employ a cleaner.
  • I like rock n roll - my singing, dancing, dressing and even my arting is inspired by the 1950s.
  • I desperately want blue hair, but instead it is red.
  • I have had a number of psychic experiences, but they've become less frequent as I've gotten older.
  • Listening to the blues makes me happy.
  • I have nine tattoos and counting.
  • I love reading, cartwheeling, baking, complete sets of things, cherries, and sitting on the sofa with a cup of tea, a book and my husband and his guitar.
  • I like waterfalls and rivers, romance (although I'm not romantic at all), blogs, dreaming (as in sleep dreaming), and lemonade.
  • I want to learn the harmonica, have green fingers, travel far and wide, have a bigger craft room, and get some chickens and maybe a goat too.
  • I dislike narrow-mindedness, politicians, exclusion, imbalance, gossip, bad drivers, karaoke, and monkeys.
  • Oh, and I HATE bananas.
I'll leave you with a page I just created:
