Giving cast-offs a new lease on life

For 25 years, I had a proper job - designing blended learning solutions for corporate clients. It was a field I was passionate - and inordinately geeky - about. The sudden death of my stepfather, coupled with my ongoing struggles with depression brought me to a point where I decided "you know what? I don't want to do this any more."

With the support of my husband, who glories in the nickname Mr Namasi (long story - remind me to tell you some time), I decided to devote myself full time to working with my hands. All the hobbies I have enjoyed all my life, have become my occupation. Beading, sewing, knitting, crocheting, woodwork... the list seems to keep growing.

I have a workshop in Northampton, where I restore items, give them a makeover, or turn them into something else altogether. I have a large stash of pallets and reclaimed wood, and am always on the scrounge for items I can use for upcycling.

I also accept commissions, challenging and stretching my skill set on a regular basis.

I'm not a fan of throwing things away. Mainly because 'away' is a fictitious place.

Mr Namasi and I have two adult sons, a dog called Jess (who is my devoted companion), a cat called Molly-Mae and a grandkitten called Gimli.

We're a multicultural family, with relatives on several continents.
