Rhi Creations began when I moved to the city of Pau in Southern France with my boyfriend Rhys. We relocated here from the picturesque roman city of Chester due to him landing a new job role. Leaving our first home together, our families, and my job was very hard, but moving to such a beautiful part of the world as this has helped cushion the blow!
Life out here isn’t always an easy ride though, with the French language barrier being extremely hard for us to get over! Since moving here I’ve realised how awful I am and so learning ‘un petit peut’ (a little bit) each day is one of my main focuses.
I have always had a love for crafts and making things, right from building my very first house when I was 3 years old (albeit out of cardboard boxes and fairy liquid bottles!). In the UK I was super busy with my job as a teaching assistant. I loved every minute of it (well, almost every minute!), but sadly never had the time or the energy to inject into my true passion. However, now that I am lucky to have more free time on my hands, I have been able to get crafty again! I’ll try my hand at making anything, but my keen hobbies are up-cycling, sewing and making bags, festival outfits and all sorts of things…..
I’m currently fortunate to have a little more time on my hands to do what I love. As well as sharing all of my craft projects with you lucky lot I also love talking about how I came about making everything and little snippets of my life! Enjoy!
