My original name was just Brinsley but because I was raised by my aunt and uncle I thought it would be a nice tribute to them if I added their name to mine. So began years of misuse and mispronounciation by all and sundry, but would I change back? Would I buffalo!!!
I Currently work part-time at ASDA and this provides me with the money I need to pursue my crafting obsessions.
I finished my Degree in Contemporary Lens Media at Lincoln University in 2009 and it was the most liberating thing I have ever done. Being a mature student was a revelation, I had so much in me I never knew was there.
I am a keen ScrapBooker and Card Maker and my current obsessions are Dies, Dies, Dies!!! I am in love with Tattered Lace and the occasional Tonic at the moment but I also still love stamping and colouring too.
I am married to Jo and have three amazing cats (Georgia, Jasmine and Willow), who we call our fur-babies. Georgia is just about to turn 18 and has problems with her thyroid and a dicky-ticker but through all that Jo and I would sooner starve ourselves before leaving them go hungry. It's what a good parent should do, eh!
This is my favourite card at the moment. The stamp is just so beautiful, you should see quite a few Magnolia stamps on my Blog because they are my current obsession. I have about 40 of them so far but that's just a drop in the ocean.
I coloured the pearls on the cupcake with my PM's and used a sliver of Basic Grey paper in the background - I am a total Basic Grey whore, I can't get enough of their stuff.
