About me

Introduction I don’t really like labels but I guess they have their uses sometimes. So here I am trying a few on for size … One 30+ (or should I say +++!) English girl, wife, mama, sewer, crafter, garage saler, op shopper …… One 30+ Kiwi guy, husband, dad, trainee furniture maker! Little Miss Brown – 5 1/4 (and the 1/4 is very important!) Little Miss Blue – 3 After much journeying we are currently living in the Manawatu District in New Zealand due to the fact my darling husband has returned to college to do a furniture making and design course. My two little girls are at home with me and we are setting out on our homeschooling adventure. We are working towards living a simpler, greener life – we recycle, upcycle, repurpose, re-use, reduce etc, etc, etc. And we make, make, make. As Little Miss Blue said yesterday “What are you making today Dada?”!
