Hello! It’s wonderful to meet you. I’m Cathryn. A Mama, Wife and all round creative.

I became a Mama in 2015 to the most beautiful little girl, read all about her arrival into the world here. In 2016 I married the most perfect man and you read about that here, here and here. We recently announced that we are expecting our second baby due in March 2018.

I live in a small town right by the coast. In fact it’s the most easterly point in England. It means we spend a lot of time paddling in the sea and with the sand between our toes.

This blog, which was set up in January 2012, is my online journal, where I share everything happy in my life, there’s too much negativity in the world already, so you won’t find any of that here. I share tales of motherhood, simple but delicious recipes and our adventures to beautiful places. Now Little Paper Swans has been nominated for a 2017 Brilliance In Blogging Award – Family & The Bloggers Blog Awards – Best Use of Photography. It’s amazing what my little space on the internet has become.

My ideal day would be exploring a gardens with my little family, taking photographs and then tucking into cake and sipping tea in a quintessential British tearoom. Doesn’t that sound ideal? However you’re more likely to find me juggling motherhood, working on my business and tidying my house (Toddlers (and husbands) are messy!).
