So this is me – Victoria, the face behind Blue Jelly.
Why Blue Jelly?
Seriously you don’t want to know where that nickname came from, but I will tell you it has nothing to do with actual Jelly (y’know the wobbly stuff you get with ice cream?)!
Who is Blue Jelly?
I’m Mummy to Zac and Blake (and Flynn always in my heart). My family is my whole world. Not sure if that makes me a ‘Mummy blogger’?
A few years ago I stumbled upon Project Life whilst I was a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and decided it looked easy and quick to do and that’s just what I needed as a busy Mum. So I gave it a go and BAM! – hooked. The best way to get photos off my phone and into an album along with some pretty bits and bobs and journalling to help my old brain remember why the photos were taken in the first place.
I’ve always dabbled in making stuff, from sewing and baking with my Grandma as a little girl to attending art college and then university to study textile design. That didn’t pan out exactly how I’d planned and the life of an avid weaver never came to fruition.
I’m mainly a stay at home Mum. Had the career thing going on but that’s all on hold until the boys grow up. They do grow up, right? I have a part-time job to keep me out of trouble and an amazing husband James (AKA The Spark) who lets me escape to my own little crafty world every now and then. Mainly so he can plug himself into the X-box or something.
Why this place then?
Primarily I wanted somewhere to share my creations and chit chat as you do. Mainly memory keeping but I’ll throw other crafts, family stuff, and quite possibly food things into the mix too. Be afraid when it comes to the food bit – I’m the world’s worst baker. Mary Berry would more than likely use some of her favourite terms such as ‘informal’ or ‘soggy bottom’. You know all those ‘seen it on Pinterest, nailed it’ posts? Well, that’s me!
I’m also going to add links from time to time to places I like and things I see that make my eyes light up or my jaw drop to the ground. Feel free to visit or not visit.
Hope you enjoy
