ME!
ME!

Hello… I’m the real live person behind BeingBeatrice… I’ve been crafting for about a year now, mostly I make jewellery & accessories but i’ve also been known to paint & make monsters. My latest favourite discovery is embroidery… I’m awaiting some new patterns through the post!!!!

Twinkie Chan

Above is a pic of Twinkie Chan whom I absolutely adore… she crochets food themed scarves & other goodies & is just awesome. Check her out at www.twinkiechan.com

Above is a Julie West embroidery pattern. Julie West is without a doubt one of my all time favourite artists. Her work is so so cute & is accessible in many mediums including dolls & embroidery patterns. I’ve ordered the one above & I can’t wait…

Some of my pieces… 1) Matchstick Love hairclips, 2) Under The Sea (available at http://themonstermaker.etsy.com), 3) Cats Painting.. A wedding present for my brother & sister-in-law & 4) Bertie Lentil… a lentil filled handsewn monster!

I like to work with felt, fabrics (my monsters are made with curtain fabric offcuts that I get for £3 a pop, huge sheets of it!), buttons, beads, acrylic paint, shrinkies & now embroidery threads & muslin. I find so much inspiration online, my favourite sites include www.etsy.com, www.flickr.com, www.abeautifulmess.typepad.com, www.sublimestitching.com, and www.ukhandmade.co.uk.

My favourite colours are purple & pink, I like making brooches, I like tattoos, dolls, flowers & sunshine, my favourite alcoholic beverage is white wine, I love to wear baggy jeans & flip flops, I adore Johnny Cash, I like to read & my favourite movies include Amelie & ET. Enough about me, who are you??!
