Happy Birthday to me!

I turned 25 on the 19th of April and was absolutely overwhelmed with lovely messages and fan art, even the Doctor himself sent me a birthday note! You can see Peter Capaldi's message and some of the amazing art in the gallery below! 

I've written (some of) a book!

Introducing... Doctor Who Paper Dolls! I had so much fun working on this crafty book with Simon Guerrier and Ben Morris! Take a romp through time and space with this fantastic collection of Doctor Who paper dolls. Hours of crafty fun to be had, with 26 dolls – including all 12 Doctors and a range of companions and characters, from Rose and Donna to Missy and new companion Bill – and over 50 different outfits to change them into. Learn the secrets behind the costumes, with insights from the actors and producers, and find out how to take your own dress-up to the next level with cosplay tips from me! Available in the Autumn.

I'm getting a cat!

Say hello to Biscuit. He's a cream British Shorthair kitty (6 weeks old) and he's moving in with me early June. I named him after his shortbread/rich tea biscuit colour!

That's all folks! Don't forget to follow me on Twitter (@ChristelDee) and Facebook for regular updates.

Until then, have a great May!
