It's All About Me

Actually it's not really, of course. It's about Mel who had The Big Idea in the first place; and Jo (I'm guessing you've come from there) and Denise (I'm thinking that's where you'll want to head to next); and everyone else who has lined up to tell you something about themselves and their special project.

Because sometimes (but not always) pictures are better than words, I'll show you what I've come up with first.







My answers to the questions? I'll make it snappy because I know you've got other places to stop and other people to see!
  • My favourite indulgence has to be sweet chilli flavour kettle chips
  • If I had a free afternoon I'd spend it in a bookshop. Any shop.Any place.
  • If I had to live without a notebook and pen I could. But I wouldn't want to.
  • I buy coffee beans in bulk so I don't run out. That would be a disaster.
  • At home I love to be on the top floor creating. Or in the bath.
  • I'd find it hard to live without Dunelm Mill. I've got very used to it being around
  • To spread cheer, I bring surprise comics and magazines home when I'm supposed to be buying groceries
  • Sea green is my favourite colour and Autumn my favourite season
  • Apart from reading, I'm not sure what I'm really good at. I can do a little bit of lots of things.
  • Three words to describe me? I don't know. That's three
And that's your lot from me! You'll be wanting Denise next (and you can always check in at Mel's if you get lost along the way). Mind the steps on the way out now, won't you?

I knew your minibook would be great! How lovely to learn a little more about you.
However .... I'm not sure Horsey will be pleased when he finds out you haven't included him ;-)

Amy said...

Oooh yes ... watch out - we don't want Horsey in a temper ;-)

Gorgeous Sian!

Just - wow :-) I knew I'd love your project, and I absolutely do! (I also love the way you've photographed it!)

I'm assuming that your next project will be 'All About Horsey'? xx

Nadine said...

Denise said...

Hi Sian,I knew your book would be fab,i love th eway you've photographed it too.Totally relate to your comment about spreading cheer with mags instead of groceries,and I'm sure your horsey book will be about his 'unbridled' passion with a certain horsey over at Deb's xxx tee hee

Ruth said...

What a stunning wee book, I love it! But where was Horsey? Did I miss him, or is he playing at being camera shy?

Love your colours! I love the photos, and your cute method for creating the tag. Thanks for sharing!

Elizabeth said...

This is lovely, Sian. I quite agree about the really good and three words pages.

Ann said...

Gorgeous project. And beautifully colourful as always. Nice to learn more about you from the Q&A session too ;)

Deb said...

Ah! I love your book, Sian! The colors are fun and I really like that you answered all the questions in the original project outline. I had a tough time with them. I LOL'd at your answer to three words to describe you. :o) As I only know you through this blog, I'm going to choose: clever, kind, witty (to name just 3...).

sharyncarlson said...

What a wonderful little book! I love what you put together and it's so nice to learn more about you!

Maria Ontiveros said...

Sian,
You're such a brilliant writer that sometimes it is fun to see your pictures first b/c otherwise I get so drawn into your prose that I forget to look at all the eye candy!
So, today, I loved focusing on the photos and all their scrumptious details.

Hmmm, I've missed so much in the last month!! I love your little book, Sian, makes me want to leap up and make one of my own right now.. but then I want to keep reading your blog too! So much lovely inspiration.

Carmen said...

I'm with you on the bookshops and the magazines too. Every time the girls ask for one I suck my teeth at the price but every now and then I like to say 'go on then' and they put it back on the shelf before they've realised what I've said :P

Love your little book and all the answers you provided.
