Getting a different kind of crafty

When I left school I was 100% sure that the only thing I wanted to do was be a photographer, unfortunately I had... shall we say a very unsupportive mother, and I got myself involved with a man who wasn't very nice. Both of them said I couldn't follow my dreams and go to college and do the courses I needed. I was a very different person back then and I listened, and carried on listening for the next 12 years or so. I was 25 before I had got out of that situation and  29 before I decided that I'd stop listening and just do it! Life is too short and all that. I had always been creative and in the meantime set up One Stop Pamper Shop, which I love but I still had this niggling "what if" so I went for it.

This isn't something I share very often over here, if ever actually because I am so damn critical of my photo's and its all I can do not to just delete them as soon as I have taken them. BUT I am trying my best to be more confident and at least trust other peoples judgement when they say they love them, I have been very lucky lately and had some people that like my photo's enough to hire me to photograph their children. But the nerves are still there! They fade with practise though, right? I hope so! 

I'm the world best worrier (perhaps it comes from being told "you can't" for so long) left to my own devices I wouldn't actually get anything done  just spend my days over analysing everything! I'll stop waffling and show you some of my latest pictures, hopefully I'll even press the post this blog button! Let me know what you think of them?

November News

It's cold out there! don't even think about going outside, stay home, light candles, have long luxurious baths and eat rich stews and stodgy puddings..... Ok so perhaps I'm just having a little day dream there. Sounds good though doesn't it?

But should you decide to indulge in a little pampering then im here to help! There is lots of scrumptious new products online now, and plenty of new scents as well as some old favourites returning.

Go on, you deserve a treat!!
