Hi…im Angela. I’m so glad you found me. It’s not easy finding anyone or anything on the internet, so well done you!  To find me again, please bookmark this page or sign up to my newsletter and recieve instant updates.

Who Am I?  I am a creative person with a love of all things fun, sparkly, wearable, useable and practical.  I love pretty little things – especially things to collect which has been handmade. I have been a crafter, designer and creator all my life, starting out at the tender age of around 3 years old, helping my mother with dressmaking and sewing.

On Saturday evenings, my my mother taught me how to wind a bobbin with thread so she could sew clothes for the family. This small task instilled a lifelong love of crafting and soon I making my own clothes, bags, hats and soft furnishings. I soon discovered the world of crafts and indulged in candlemaking, soapmaking, jewellery, cards, knitting, crochet, baking and so much more.

After a career in HR & Training, I suffered a major health set back which meant I had to give up my career. During my lengthy recovery, I decided to start a business doing what I love…. crafting!  I decided to make and sell jewellery  and before I knew it, I was not just making and selling my designs, but working with a TV channel, running business courses for their customers, teaching and supporting them how to start and grow a handmade jewellery business and more importantly, how to get lots of sales. That was back in 2012, and since then I have helped literally many thousands of people sell their work through hundreds of Live TV shows hours, training courses and numerous online training resources books and downloadable documents.

As a qualified training and business practictioner, I use a combination of my professional skills coupled with my experience of selling at over 300 craft shows to train, coach, mentor and support the craft community nationally and internationally.

In 2015, I had the privillage of writing and publishing my first book (which sold out in 58 seconds, live on TV). What a moment that was!  Since then, I have published several more books, written for magazines and been a guest speaker at events.

Whilst I still get involved in crafting (I will never lose my passion for it), these days I help people achieve their dreams and goals of selling their handmade work via training, coaching and mentoring support. I also love travelling, history, genealogy and gardening.

I love animals too, especially my cat Bobsy, who makes me very happy and keeps me on my toes.  She’s the real boss in my house
