About Me

My photo
My name is Anna, and I work as a primary school teacher in greater London. I love eating pizza and watching TV with my husband. I also love painting glass, and any other crafty pursuits that give me a chance to make a mess! I am on a bit of a mission to learn how to cook, bake, sew and generally make things before I have children. I'm trying to learn something new each day. I really value your support, so thank you for following me xx

Hand Made Monday

Yesterday was our 1st Wedding Anniversary!



For anyone who doesn't know - that's paper. So thought I'd share the day's makes.

My husband made me a beautiful yellow rose (my favourite)


And I made him an animation using paper:

My brilliant mum came round with a replica of our wedding cake:

We were married at the beautiful Hatfield House, and went back there for a visit yesterday. It's even lovlier than it was a year ago, and it looks like they are going to have some brilliant Christmas Fairs on this year. 


We've had the most wonderful year. I think it takes a very special type of person to marry someone who makes such a mess and is so fond of paint that stains everything. I can't wait to see what I'm sharing with you this time next year :)

Thank you for reading xx

  5. Congratulations on what looks like a lovely first wedding anniversary. I am typing this whilst your animation is playing, lovely. I last went to Hatfield House - trying to work it out - over 30 years ago. A friend lived near the roundabout on the A1 with the Aeroplane on. Thats all I can remember about the area now.
