My name is Audrey, and I live in the North East - UK, with my husband and my four children ages from 27 years to my youngest who is 14 years.
I have always loved anything to do with art, one of my first jobs was making and designing stain glass windows and another one of my arty jobs was teaching adult's art & crafts.
In 1991 I left work to become a full time mum with my 1st child, it was then that I started to make Dolls and Bears as a hobby, which I sold at Doll & Teddy fairs to help fund my hobby.
And I first started making my soaps in 2006 for my children, as my first child was born with eczema and most soaps always made his condition worse.
I also have an interest in new age and alternative healing, and did my Reiki level 1 & 2 in 2006, I have used this a lot for distant healing, sending healing all over the world to people who need it. And in January 2014, I did my first & second degree Angelic Reiki.
In 2011 I started working as a volunteer with Macmillan Cancer Support and Age UK which I did for four years, and in August 2015 I started working for Age UK as a Day Centre Care Worker, I then went onto working as an Activities Co-ordinator, and for the last 2 years I have worked as a live-in-Carer working all over the UK, I don't have as much time to make my dolls and bears now I am working, but still make a few when I can.
