Who Am I?
Hello! My name is Beccy May. Thank you for visiting my blog 🙂
Lincolnshire based photographer and have been blogging on and off since 2012.
What do I do?
My first love is Photography. Put a camera in my hands and I am happy. I’m always looking to expand my skill set and explore new areas of the artform and hope to continue to do so for a long time to come.
My 9-5 is Jewellery Photography and Post-processing. I love getting to work on really intricate and technical setups to create beautiful jewellery still life imagery. Details count; I pride myself on my eye for the smaller touches that bring images together.
Outside of my day job, I like to dabble in as many crafts and hobbies as I can squeeze in. I love love LOVE to crochet, but also occasionally try my hand at Sewing, painting, sculpting, papercrafts… certified hobby-hopper!
What business do I have writing a blog?!
I’m not particularly adventurous. I don’t travel much. I’m not fashionable enough to write about style or beauty.
However, what I have always had is a passion for creating things. And while the satisfaction I get from finishing projects is, in itself, a lovely feeling… I just wanted a place to document these creations so one day I can look back on all I have learned and accomplished. And here we are!
I also wanted to challenge myself to become more productive in my downtime; to try and spring out of the Work-Eat-Sleep cycle. I decided a blog would be a great way to start as I have found the community a fantastic and nurturing space for creativity and experimentation. as well as adding to the drive to produce more.
I choose to blog under a pseu-diddly-eudonym for a variety of reasons! However, I’m sure it’s not hard to track me down. So if anyone I know reads this… Hiya! *so much cringe*
This blog is also a little space for me to be able to dip my toes into the daunting world of website building, WordPress, learning SEO and other bits and pieces like that.
Alright, but what will this blog do for the reader?
Hopefully, people will enjoy reading my posts!
I’m not sure what direction this blog will take eventually, but for now, it will be a mix of my own crafting adventures, DIY projects, documents of my travels and experiences… and the odd bit of self-indulgent rambling!
What are my plans for the future?
I’m looking to explore areas of my life I haven’t focused on before now. Self-care, self-love, and acceptance. I really hope to learn enough about these topics to one day help others.
Through more holistic and complementary methods, I am currently exploring Art therapy, Mindfulness, Diet and Excercise as areas in which to change my life for the better. This is only the beginning of my journey though, so watch this space!
