I've been inspired by Kaylah at The Dainty Squid to create a better profile for this blog as, no offence Blogger, the default one isn't all that thrilling.

I'm S., 25, living in London with my lovely boyfriend Cardy and a menagerie of dolls and crafty critters.  An office bod by day, by night (and weekends) I can be found taking photographs, going for walks around London, reading, listening to music and spending far too much time on the internet (I'm always on the hunt for that perfect crafty purchase on Etsy).

Instead of rabbiting on for paragraphs about what musicians I like and describing my various birthmarks in detail, I'm going to provide you with a simple profile:
