About me

Hello there!

Thank you for popping by The Pea Pod, you're very welcome indeed.

My name is Lizzie Powell and I have a big goal that I've been working on for the past ten years!

I live in a little cosy house in a beautiful beautiful part of the UK called The Forest of Dean. I share my home with two cats, Baby and Sweetie.


By day I work full time for a global manufacturing company, but at night and weekends I'm a blogger, crafter, artist and on line shop owner. My big goal is to escape my day job, pay off my mortgage as quickly as I can and work from home running my own business as an artist/maker.

My goal started just after I finished a Fine Art course at college. I had just been offered a job in a local factory (where I still work today) and I had signed up to buy a little house that needed lots of work done to it. I stupidly thought that it would just take two years to complete the work but in fact it has taken me ten!!

So now I'm at the stage of my goal where I'm paying my mortgage off as fast as I can whilst running my on line shop - Drop the Weasel. The mortgage payments are coming on nicely but it's still early days for my shop which will need time to grow and evolve.

The Pea Pod was initially started for me to keep a diary of every day events and to share with readers my creations but as time has gone on it's becoming a goal milestone blog which helps me to stay on track and stay motivated too!

I hope you enjoy what you see here and if you do, then feel free to sign up as a follower and stick around. I'm always thrilled to read your comments too so don't be shy!

Thanks for reading
Lizzie xx

  1. I was looking for information on Alfred Meredith as I had acquired (10 yrs ago)the Caerphilly Castle full size painting. I can admire its accuracy as I originally came from Caerphilly but its not really my cup of tea
