Chrissy Brown

Owner of Crafty Monkey in Cambridgeshire United Kingdom

Hi, I'm Chrissy and I'm pretty eclectic in my tastes and am a strong believer that variety really is the spice of life, as a result I've so far led a varied and fulfilling life.

I'm well travelled, I've had lots of different jobs in various sectors and I've had many hobbies over the years. I love meeting people from far flung places around the world and love the world God created and it never ceases to amaze me. I'm generally a positive person who loves life and I look for the good in things.

I currently run Crafty Monkey Pottery Painting, Build a Bear and Craft Studio in St. Neots - a Cambridgeshire market town - where all ages and abilities can come and get creative!

I love anything creative and love upcycling, repurposing and reuse! I am also a shedaholic winning Garden Office Category of Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year 2015.

I've recently started blogging. My blog is a place for me to put down ideas, to store memories or share ideas and write reviews! All manner of subjects are covered, feel free to have a browse!
