kia ora hello

welcome to my site...


A little bit about me - i live by the beach, with my man, 2 lovely little kids, 5 chooks and a worm farm...We have a 100yr old bach, 3 vege plots and numerous fruit trees...which is an attempt to lighten our load on mother earth, and is also lots of fun (especially when the chooks escape and head for the vege patch!...)

As for why i am here, i got into craft as a child, and come from a rich history of craftswomen, mostly from Ireland...my grannie taught me to sew, and my mum to knit....and everything else grew from there really...I get most of my creative inspiration from the great Aotearoa wilderness, the beach, and my garden...

At the moment i am passionate about recycling old stuff, buttons, feathers, sewing, learning te reo (with my kids, who are at the local Kohanga Reo), tinorangatiratanga, and how to live without making too much mess of this lovely planet...
