Mirror Mirror

Today’s the day! Whenever I get work in a national, I run to the corner shop like a little kid on pocket money day and buy myself a copy.

I was thrilled when the Daily Mirror requested some of my content for its 101 things to keep the family entertained… and learn something new supplement.

My craft column in the regional newspapers has been running for nearly 18 months now, with lots of titles around the UK picking it up.

It is up there as one of my favourite jobs ever – I love making things and sharing my how-to guides with young readers and their families.

Even after 20 years as a newspaper journalist, nothing beats the feeling of seeing my work in print.
