A place for all kinds of food, crafts and general nerdery
What to say? What to say?
Ok, lets start with basics. I’m Nyssa. I’m 26 years old, English and currently residing in the East of England. Yes, Nyssa is my real name. No, it’s not short for anything. It’s a Greek name that my mother claims was chosen because of it’s meaning. My father admitted the truth recently, I was named after a Doctor Who companion lol!
I am currently a full time office worker. I am also a part time law student as well as a part time cake/craft maker. I am also a life long geek. Star Wars, Firefly, Doctor Who (how could I not be? lol!) and Mighty Boosh among many amazing others.
I decided to create this post as a repository for the random thoughts in my head. Be that cakes, crafts, costumes, general geekery or even the occasional social commentary; although I will try to keep those to a minimum as they tend to bore most people.
I love the idea that cooking from scratch, sewing, knitting and general crafts are back in fashion. I’ve been baking and crafting since I was 5, after I started helping my grandmother and my mother. They taught me the basics and over the years, I’ve been trying to increase my knowledge. I’m still learning and discovering what I can do and decided to share my successes and fails with others who like the same things.
At the moment, that’s all I can think to add. So for now, enjoy and please bear with me as I’m still getting used to this site 🙂
