About Me

Hi, I'm Cosmic Strawberry, or in the real world known as Colette.

I'm a mad, daft, fun loving Goth and proud of my piercings and tatts.

I live with my cat Zuzu, chickens Babs, Hyacinth, Daisy, Violet, Rose & Gladys and some beautiful pond fish.

I live in a gorgeous village in North Norfolk near Cromer, not too far from the beautiful city of Norwich and the Norfolk Broads.

I am so blessed to be a designer/illustrator and I design for Crafts Beautiful, PaperCrafter , Let's Make Cards and Make It Today magazines.

My style is bright, funky, clean and simple (yes, even though I'm a goth).

I love anything retro...especially the 1950's and 1960's; Looney Tunes, Spongebob Squarepants, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, anything Tim Burton, Fast & Loud (especially Richard - ooh yum), a good juicy horror film and then of course there's Keeping Up Appearances and Benny Hill...well most daft and funny things really.

I also love crafting stuff (especially American products), buying crafting stuff, collecting crafting stuff, making stuff with crafting stuff, just stuff really... Ooh! and I'm a self-confessed paper stroker - you know, you buy a sheet to use and one to just look at and stroke - sad, I know.

I really enjoy other crafts such as needlework, knitting and crochet. Colouring books are another passion - I have more hobbies than I have time.
