    Welcome to The Creative Coastal Home!  I’m Andrea and I’m hoping that this will be the start of some great blogging adventures in my future! I’m a programme/project manager by trade, and I’ve always loved being creative. It started with knitting as a child, but plenty of dabbling in other crafts, then I bought my first home and discovered paint charts, home magazines and the joy of planning your own décor! Over the last few years, my work/life balance has definitely been skewed in favour of work. This meant craft projects were endlessly planned but not nearly as many as I would have liked were executed. Although I did tend to get as far as buying the raw materials for projects, which now means I have a plentiful craft stash…

    This year I’ve put a lot of thought into how I want to change my life to be more balanced in favour of my creative side. As a result, I’ve sold my home and am in the processing of buying another one – and yes, it’s on the coast! My hope is that when I get moved, early 2017, I will be able to spend quality time on turning my new house into a home, with a mixture of large and small projects, as well as building up a new life and friendships in a totally different part of the UK. And I’ll share the journey right here! So please sign up, follow my progress, and let me know what you like and what you don’t as I find my blogging feet!
