Welcome To My Blog

Hi My Name is Rachel and Welcome to My Blog!!

I'm an arts and crafts tutor from Wokingham, UK. 


My passion is helping people discover the joy of creating beautiful things. 

Especially during these crazy times, it's so important to find ways to relax and unwind from all the anxiety and stress that seems to be swirling around us. 

2020 has been a rollercoaster for everyone, right? It's like we're all stuck in this cycle of grief and anger that just drags us down. I've definitely felt the weight of it all & I'm sure you have too.


To cope with the isolation and stress, I've been diving into repetitive crafts. There's something about the rhythm and focus of these activities that helps me find a sense of peace. It's like creating my own little oasis of calm in the chaos. 


Plus, it's a great way to keep my hands and mind busy. So, if you ever feel like joining me in a crafty adventure, I'd love to have you along! Let's create something beautiful together and take a break from all the craziness.

These particular types of crafts help create a ‘zen-like’ mood which I find particularly good for 2 reasons -

1 - They are great used as a distraction from my feelings

2 - They can also give me some time to sit with my thoughts whilst keeping my hands busy. 


I've definitely found that engaging in creative activities is a wonderful way to take a break from my feelings and give my mind some space to wander. Talking about emotions can be tough, right? 


That's why I turn to crafting, which my friend Lucy Herd says is like healing without even realizing it. It's like a little escape that does wonders for my mood. 


Repetitive crafts like crochet, doodle drawing, or needlepoint are not only fun but also great for calming your mind during stressful times. They kind of sync up with your body's fight or flight response, which is pretty cool. 


When I'm not crafting, I'm usually lost in daydreams about new projects I want to try. It can be a bit distracting, especially during office meetings! I'll catch myself staring off into space for minutes on end, totally unaware of what's going on around me. Talk about awkward! 

I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while now, and with all this extra time at home, I finally decided to go for it. 


My blog will be a mix of my adventures, random thoughts, and of course, all the cool projects I'm working on. I'm hoping it'll be a space where we can all connect, share ideas, and maybe even make some new friends along the way. So, why not come along for the ride? Let's embark on this creative journey together!
