About

Hiya, my name is Laura and you’ve found my little blog!
This is a place where I can chat with you as I try to keep myself in check with my 2016 plans and share my stories and the odd tutorial on the way. There will be random chatter, crafts and other things. I really hope you enjoy reading my Hey Preston blog!

A little bit about me…
I was born and raised in the North East of England and have lived here all of my life. Now, at the age of 27, I am starting to think a bit more positively about the future and where I see myself going etc. Since I was young, art and crafts have been a huge part of my life and I don’t know how I would live without them, but as of late, finding the time to ‘creatively out-let’ has been a bit difficult. However, living on my own, I feel I have the perfect opportunity to express myself 100% and have no one to tell me how I should dress, what my flat should look like and to stop leaving paints and glitter out on the table. So here I am, trying to ‘creatively out-let’ by sharing ideas, inspirations and crafting things, even if just to keep a nice visual record to keep me inspired!

I have a degree in Graphic Design, but I often wish I could study again and do Fine Art and then again to do Textiles… Fashion… you get the gist. Don’t get me wrong, I am so pleased I did graphic design as it probably got me to where I am today and I love being able to use Photoshop and Illustrator and learn new things every time I create something new.

You just can’t beat hands on creativeness though, especially if there is glitter involved. I am the kind of person who actually does not mind one bit if glitter gets everywhere, because it looks so pretty.

What to expect…
For now, I would say expect anything. Because nobody knows what is around the corner, even with my tarot cards I still have no real clue where I will be a few months from now.
