Classicists Do It In The Agora by mentalsarcasm
Classicists Do It In The Agora
A purple card with white text that reads "Classicists Do It In The Agora". The Agora was the ancient Greek marketplace, which is why it's written in Greek.

More cards can be found at
Mixed Bag by mentalsarcasm
Mixed Bag
A mixed collection of my badges, including my very popular "I Love Sherds" one for archaeologists, and "History Geek" of which I have several colour choices.

All badges can be found at The Creative Historian (
Consorts of England by mentalsarcasm
Consorts of England
Another set of badges from my website, Creative Historian. Monarchs have consorts, and consorts deserve their own badges! If you have a favourite Queen (or you really like Geoffrey of Anjou) then you might find a badge here that you like.

Monarchs of England by mentalsarcasm
Monarchs of England
A whole bunch of the Monarchs of England badges that can be found on

From William the Conqueror to Mary I, I've used the word "monarchs" because Mary and Empress Matilda are both included.

I Love History Tote Bag by mentalsarcasm
I Love History Tote Bag
A screen-printed "I Love History" tote bag! I've moved my 2 Etsy shops to their own combined website and that means I get to try a whole bunch of new products!

Designed by me and screen printed by a small British business based in Leeds. Website is at
So I came on here to have a poke around my Favourites and glanced at the Journal and realised that the date on it is 2010.

And it's now 2012 (despite my belief yesterday that it was 2011 which made the first hour of work quite confusing XD)

Long story short, I now live in Kew in London (ridiculously close to the Royal Botanical Gardens) and I work in archives, mostly in customer service but occasionally I get to hide with the documents.

I haven't made any jewellery in a looooong time.

I also haven't written anything in ages. Lost my muse. I have been working on a little Doctor Who thing recently but I can't seem to get the ending quite right, no matter how much I tweak it it still feels rushed.

I have, however, managed to complete NaNoWriMo twice :D The 2010 and 2011 ones saw me break the 50k mark, will I manage to do it again for 2012? Well right now it looks like I won't be writing anything at all let alone trying and failing but there's still a few months to go.

I have also been given my Dad's Canon Digital Rebel and I'm finally learning how to use it, so there might be some photographs coming up in the next few months (once I get a memory card reader DX) if I take anything I actually like.

Oh and I have a new Etsy shop, The Bibliophile, which sells vintage books-…
The photos in the shop were taken by my Dad, hence why I now have his old camera, I need to learn to start taking them myself.

Aaaand I think that's about it! Might start updating this journal a bit more if I start listing more stuff :) I'm also on Tumblr under the name "TheBritishBibliophile" and I'm Blogspot- thebritishbibliophile.blogspot…

Have a nice day!

Haven't been in contact with you for a loooonnngg time, haha.

This account is probably inactive, but I was looking through my notes and found a bunch of our old messages and those brought me here. : ) I have no idea if you're still there, or lurking somewhere else, but I hope life is treating you well and everything is good for you. It's a shame your jewellery thing fell away, but I'm glad you got to do something in books, I always knew you'd do something in that line. : p

Maybe I'll hear from you sometime. Maybe not.
Either way, just thought I'd say hi. : )
