Mrs Blossom is a self confessed craft addict and all her friends know it. Mrs Blossom or Joanna has always been a crafting enthusiast and whole heartedly believes she was crafty before crafty was cool! Getting her craftiness from her mother, she has always enjoyed a variety of techniques and has run children's workshops for a number of years.
Joanna is in fact a trained stage manager (that means she works behind the scenes in the theatre) and has a BA Hons Degree in Stage management from Rose Bruford College. She still dabbles behind the scenes during the year working at the Kings Theatre, Portsmouth and in productions for the Royal Navy Theatre Association at HMS Sultan, Gosport. Mrs Blossom spent 2 years working for Butlins running the children's stages where she met her husband Matt, a visiting entertainer. In 2009 She left Butlins to work with Matt on their entertainment business, The Dramatic Entrance Company, producing shows for holiday resorts across the country, providing unique entertainment acts and running Circus & Magic and Arts & Craft workshops in Hampshire and the surrounding area.
Matt and Joanna married in March 2011 and have a Green Cheeked Conure called Monroe and last May they had a little boy called Albert.
Currently Joanna is working at the Kings Theatre, running Arts & Crafts workshops and is a Learning Support Assistant in a Gosport Junior School. Also, she sells Blossom Button Fascinators in her online Folksy Shop and occasionally in the Gosport Discovery Centre and Voluptuous Vintage in Alverstoke village.
