Five Is The Magic Number

As many of you know, I run a little handmade business with my younger sister Lu. Lucy told me about a brilliant idea called Blog Every Day in May and I have decided to give it a go, in order to keep my creative/blogging juices flowing. Lately, I seem to have neglected my blog but I really don't want to let it slide so, rising to the challenge seems like the perfect remedy.

Here goes!

Five things about me...that all, conveniently, include the number 5! 

1. My favourite story (and TV show - see above) as a child was 'Five Children And It,' by E. Nesbit. I REALLY wanted it to be true!

2.I have worked in my current role as a Teaching Assistant for 5 years. That's my day job - (as soon as night falls I turn into an illustrator and designer and begin howling at the moon. Shhh! No body knows!) ;-)

3. This blog is 5 years old.

4. I was expecting my first child this time 5 years ago (time flies!)
She inspired me to start seriously following my passion for design and illustration.

5.I'm a fan of a 5 year plan! Even if you divert along the way,  it's good to have a general idea of where you want to go and how you are going to get there.

I look forward to reading everyone's posts.

I LOVE that your five lines are five related. Also, Five Children and It is too, too good!
