#WonderfulWednesday

As you know by now I have set myself a challenge to be more of a cheerleader for the wonderful human beings that surround me, inspire me, encourage me and generally give me hope for the future. So with that in mind every Wednesday I aim to share with you the profile of some fabulously divine human beings so you too may share in all that they are and bring to the world.

Welcome to #WonderfulWednesday No. 27

I've tried to remember when the 1st time I met this divine human was but I simply can't pin point it. They burst into my life with a twirl and a tea, many moons ago and have stayed.


So let me introduce them to you by sharing 10 things that totally captivate me about them:
1) They smile all the time
2) They have their own rhythm 
3) They are kindhearted
4) They dream big
5) They ask important questions 
6) They desire to make the world a better place     
7) They create and curate  
8) They put themselves out for others        
9) They aren't afraid to try something new   
10) They generate joy


Who is this #WonderfulWednesday you may ask ...


Tammy Oliver 

Tammy lives in Southampton with her Jon and spends her days generally changing the world. I mean thats what she was built for and she does it will bells on! Curating crafty moments, beautifying places making them into spaces and selling wares for the fabulous Globalseesaw. She is intentional about building community and committed to a simple life. Together with Jon they are birthing a new community house, putting some pioneering flesh onto the bones of an old vicarage.  

Tammy is brilliant, she doesn't have a clue how awesome she is and I guess thats part of her charm! 

When my dad died Tammy sat up late with me one night as I drunkenly sobbed my heart out and moaned about how no one had a clue what they were talking about. She wiped away my tears, listened and made sure I got home safe. She taught me how to use my sewing machine, has handcrafted my daughters much loved tutu and we have spent a few sweaty hours on a dark dance floor together. 

Then just this week, after a rollercoaster couple of weeks, I was feeling a tad down & disheartened when the postie delivered this ...


A homemade broach with a hand written note of encouragement, popped in the post and sent to my home. What a way to start the week, thats the kinda gem Tammy is! 

You can follow Tammy and all her creative glory over here. You wont be disappointed she's a gift to the world and I am incredibly thankful for her. 

The world is a better place with her in it FACT!
