Introducing Toni Rainbows – Hiya!

Well, I’d better introduce myself then, hadn’t I?

Thank you so much for visiting – I’m Toni Pomfret, I’m a Northern Lass and this is my first ever blog! I’ve wanted to start a blog for a few years now, but Imposter Syndrome always took over – then, suddenly, I woke up with the name Toni Rainbows in my head. And now here we are! I’m very excited to share some snippets of my bright, colourful, and quirky life with you.

I feel like I’m on Blind Date now – I’m 31, an avid crier, and a fan of the Oxford Comma. I have a husband and a bloody marvellous cat. Herbert (the cat) came into our lives a few days before Christmas, and my clothes have been dusted with cat hairs ever since. My husband has been around a bit longer (10 years this year, since we started “going out”!) 

I work for a mental health charity, and I do a lot of creative activities in my spare time. You can find a list of my favourite crafts further down. 

You’ve probably guessed by now, but I love rainbows; real rainbows, rainbow clothes, rainbow art, rainbow everything. They bring an instant smile to almost everyone, and there’s just something magical about a good rainbow.  Even in the rainiest of skies, you can still find some colour and sparkle. 

But what the hell will you be blogging about?! I hear you cry. Well.. most things bright and colourful. Photos from my creative projects, with some handy how-to and DIY tutorials. Step by step guides for creating beautiful homeware, transforming your garden space, and even how to DIY a bespoke pom pom wedding. 

You’ll likely find me being honest about mental health, and some of the practises I use to deal with everyday struggles.  I also hope you’ll find some laughter and useful tips too. 

I’ll post recommendations as well as lists of exciting and beautiful things to treat your eyes to.  I’ll share my knowledge and expertise in fields such as mental health, skincare, crochet, and all things rainbow. 

Top 5 Hobbies:

  • Watercolour painting
  • Crochet
  • Papercutting
  • Sewing
  • Houseplants and Gardening

If you have any questions, or you would like to suggest an idea below, please leave me a comment! 

If you got this far – I really really appreciate you!

    I am sure this article has touched all the internet visitors, its really really nice post on building up new web site.
    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a excellent job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox.
    Superb Blog! I’ll immediately seize your rss as I can not in finding your email subscription link
    or e-newsletter service. Do you have any? Kindly allow me realize so that I may subscribe.
    Thanks. http://www.cspan.net/
