Hi I’m Corrine, a 30 something from sunny Staffordshire in the UK. Contained within an office in the day (it’s not that bad really, I love my job!), in my spare time I really enjoy indulging my creative side. I want to inspire you all to have a go yourselves and try new things. If I can do it, you absolutely can!
If you’re looking for ideas for new things to try, you’re in the right place! What Corrine Did Next is all about new things I have done (or in many cases made) so that you can copy the bits you like and learn from my mistakes! I want to show you just how easy (and rewarding) it is to make things yourself and give you the confidence to try it for yourself.
My blog is a mash up of the The Great British Bake Off meets The Great British Sewing Bee (for my non-UK followers, both are really worth a watch on YouTube!), with a lots of other random things thrown in for good measure because I’m too greedy to stick to one or even two subjects. Whether you’re looking for a new recipe to try (I’m sorry, I can’t be held responsible for how calorific a lot of my foodie posts are) or what you could sew/make, you’re in the right place!
I’ve been sewing since I tried and failed to make a zip-backed shell top in 2013 (it was terrible!) Since then I’ve grown in both skill and confidence. On the blog, I love sharing a range of beginner to intermediate projects and pattern reviews to give you the confidence to know you can do it too!
I’ve been baking since I was 14 and I took it as a subject for my GCSEs at school – the reality is I chose it because it looked easy (yes I know, complete cop out on my part) but little did I know that it would spark a passion for creating delicious sweet treats.
Don’t forget to sign up to my updates so you can be the first to be inspired! I love receiving and replying to your comments, questions and feedback (you can do this by commenting on a post or using the handy form on the Contact Us page).
