Introduction Hi, My name is Michele! I am another creative type, drawn into this vast infinitely inspiring community that is the blogging world. I’ve no official training, I just run on an uncontrollable desire to 'make stuff’, I love to encourage and inspire people especialy my young family. If I need something and I think I can make it myself, I try!!! My goal this year is to make all presents. I am slightly offbeat, I have a black sense of humor but I am seldom too grim... The name ‘happydacks’ comes from a pair of refashioned tea towels made into some groovy pants I made for my son not because I am incurably happy type! Yuck! Have some fun! Michele x
