About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and if you are very unlucky I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Around the World in Cultures

Wow part five of my travels already!  This time I'm starting in America and heading up through Alaska to the Artic Circle.

In America I looked specifically at Native Americans and learnt that:


  • Native Americans are often called American Indians
  • The Sequia tree is named after the Cherokee leader Sequoyah
  • Many Native American words have been absorbed into English, Chia, Chilli, Chocolate, Coyote and Poncho
  • Native Americans served in WW1
  • Sioux was adopted by the French from the Lakota people


I love learning about other cultures and recently have become slightly obsessed in watching Life Below Zero and seeing how they survive in the Artic Circle so I have learnt that:



  • The Inuits are also called Inuk
  • There are three groups called:  Inughuit, Tunmitt and Ka laallit 
  • Rubbing noses is a form of kissing
  • Their diet is predominately meat and fish
  • They travel on dog sledges and Qajaqs
