About Me

I'm Emma, and I'm a Software Test Engineer by trade.  Meaning I try to break software so a better product is released.  I'm also very proud to be a Hufflepuff.  Ergo, I'm a testy badger!

I've been an avid reader since around the age of 3.  My happiest memory is learning how to write my name so I could get my very own library card.  When I was younger I reviewed books for my group of friends, we put together a newsletter for all of us.  I think I did Ella Enchanted and the Patrica C. Wrede dragon series before I gave up.  Fast forward twenty years, and I think I'm doing better with it.

Aside from reading I love crafts.  I design and make my own jewelry, I go crazy with nail art designs, I love to knit and crochet, to quilt and to sew.  But counted cross stitch is probably my favorite (I'm currently working on a Doctor Who bag to end all Doctor Who bags).  I'm also huge into ballroom dance, I perform and I want to get back into competing.

So that's me in a nutshell.  Throughout the next few months my blog will be growing and being fine tuned to something that I can easily manage.  I may do a monthly nail art post, or a recent craft projects post when I complete something especially awesome.
