About Me

My photo
Known to most as GOK or Bella, I am a half-Venetian, half-British knitter, stitcher, dyer, grower, aesthete, historian, grammar-fascist, culinary goddess, gamer and uber-geek - working in the UK making fine bespoke corsetry and theatrical costume... with occasional forays into making videogames too! Constantly homesick for Venezia.

Life is pretty good, don't'cha think?

After a week of moaning about things, I've been reflecting that although there may be frustrations of a technical nature, in general however, my life is pretty darn shiny!

I have the amazing good fortune to be loved and adored by the most incredible and wonderful man in the entire universe. No really, it's true....you may think that your man is the most wonderful one but I can assure you that mine really is. Fact.

Heheh! ;-)




(Gorgeous isn't he?!)

I am also fortunate in that not only am I very good at several unrelated things (and maybe even brilliant at one or two!), I can also make money from them, and what is more, I get to do it from home too! I am currently engaged in making several bespoke corsets, Lady Macbeth's costume for a wonderful actor, James Tudor, and am editing the wiki for Stronghold Kingdoms! I get to be anally retentive, and creative...does it get any better?!

But y'know what's really great? I think I can safely say that the swine 'flu is finally out of my system. I still get tired really easily but at least I can stay awake beyond 8pm now! Oink!

Of course, there are many other wonderful things in my life, for which I am truly thankful (true and loyal friends, a beautiful home, loving family, etc.) but right now, the ones above are the most paramount.

I am blessed!
