Hi There!

I am a working mum. I have two mini men, 4 and 1. My husband and I have slowly been renovating our old Queenslander since May 2011 and we are just about to start stage two of the reno, enclosing the old verandah to make our room and the boys room bigger and provide a much needed walk in robe for me!

I grew up always doing art and craft projects and both my mum and grandma sewed, but that has fallen along the wayside as an adult for various reasons. This year I am taking up the craft challenge again. I want to explore crafts for both me and the mini men and document my failures (which I expect there will be many) and triumphs.

So, stay tuned for some baking, sewing, gluing, painting and glittering crafty misadventures!
