7 things about me:

I was born in London. Fun fact: Daniel Radcliffe was born at the same hospital as me, the year after.

I work in an art gallery and before that I worked in libraries.

My personality type is INTJ ‘Architect’ according to this website – apparently Architects are quite rare, and female ones even rarer.

I make greetings cards when I have the time. Buttons, tissue paper, stamps and sequins are my favourite materials to use.

The first film I ever saw at the cinema was Toy Story.

I don’t drive and have never wanted to.

People like the cakes, biscuits and soup that I make. There’s no magic to it, I just follow the recipe.

  1. Your answers are so interesting!! Haha, my mom doesn’t like driving either, and I think I’m much more of a commuter as well. I love handmade greeting cards, they’re so intimate and heartwarming 🙂 Lol, that’s so cool how you’ve worked at a library, every bookworms’ dream. Which job do you like more?

    1. Thank you! 🙂
      I almost never buy greeting cards. It’s cheaper to make them and they are easily personalised. I didn’t just work in 1 library, I worked in 9 libraries! Different kinds in different locations. But I have to say, what matters most in a job is the people you work with… I’m going to say that my current job is the best 🙂

  2. YOU WORK IN AN ART GALLERY???? OMG That’s so awesome NS!! And seriously, you are so talented! yOu can write AND create stuff AND COOK!??!!! Ooh I hate driving. Never enjoyed it LOL Rather been driven around so I can read ahahhahaa

    1. Thank you so much, Jee! 🙂
      I’m a pretty creative person, I would like to do more but there’s not enough hours in the day!
      I suppose driving is necessary for some people, luckily I don’t actually need to.

  3. Same here. For now, at least! Haha Hey, maybe you should have a blog on the stuff that you make/create! Or sell them on etsy! 😀

    1. Actually I did start an etsy shop but didn’t have the time to work on it properly and build up customers – then I started writing a novel and that took priority!

    1. Well I’ve only been there for 3 months but so far it’s interesting, although fairly quiet most of the time (suits me)!

  4. I really enjoyed reading your 7 things about me. It sounds like so much fun working at an art gallery! Out of curiosity I also tried the Personality test and found out that I am an Advocate. After reading the description I’m quite shocked at how fitting and true it is!

    1. Thanks for your comment! The personality test is interesting isn’t it? Seems to be accurate for everyone! 🙂

  5. Thanks for your comment!
    I’d like to make cards more often but my card-making room is also the baby’s bedroom 🙂
