Make. Write. Explore. It's my mantra. It's what I do and who I am.
I'm happiest when making things for myself, family and friends and then sharing with you what I've learnt along the way. My current passions include eco dyeing, experimental baking, leather craft and whittling. With a dabble here and there into knitting, drawing and book binding. Of course these change frequently as a new craft catches my eye!
I am a true believer in working with what you've got, rather than waiting for the day when everything will be just 'so'. I live in an apartment where I do leather work at my desk in the lounge room, woodwork at the kitchen bench and cut out fabric on my dining room floor. I might have a studio one day but for now, I'm making do!
On this blog I'm sharing what I learn along the way as I make the things I need and make the life I want. Making has given me so much. Not only the things I make and the skills to create with my hands. It's also given me insights into my creative process, and lessons about letting go and going slow.
When I'm not making things with my hands, I'm out exploring the world around me. I'm spending more and more time in nature, learning about the creatures and plants around me. Foraging fallen branches to use in button making or weeds for healing. It's all making and connecting (which is my other big passion. Along with reading and cooking delicious and healthy food. There's lots of passion here!).
My regular posts include tasty recipes, projects I have made as well as the adventures I have been having in making the life I want to be living. If you're looking for posts on creativity, motivation and happiness you've come to the right place!
What else? I grow herbs on my balcony and spend as much time as I can in nature.
