It’s all about me!

Updated: Mar 8, 2021

I’m sorry about the title of this post, but, yes, this really is all about me! For anyone who doesn’t know me or wants to know me better, this month I want to invite you into my world. Cygnini Crafts was built from my love of crafts and my experience of education and I’d love to take you back to see where it all started...

I’m a bit of a late starter to be honest. The significant events that have been most important to me (apart from anything to do with my family, of course!) have taken place later in life and I would definitely recommend “going for it” if you have been thinking of a change in your life, no matter when you do it :)

Ok, so let’s take a step back to where my love of creative arts began.

I always remember being a creative child. My mum says I didn’t get my artistic ability from her or dad, but my aunt is extremely artistic... I’m not sure how genes work, but maybe it came from a rogue one ;)

I took art subjects at school, I dreamed of being a fashion designer and remember writing to THE Emanuels (remember Diana’s wedding dress?) to see what they thought of my design work and ask if they thought it would be a good move to take design further. I got a positive reply!
