About Me

Hi! My name is Ann Marie and I live in Melbourne Australia. I am lucky enough to be loved by my husband and two children. I am a SAHM (or a mum on long service leave from my job!) and really enjoy being a "housewife". Just love it! Baking would probably be my favourite thing besides craft.

I am interested in all crafts with the exception of scrapbooking and doing more with less ie. enjoying the little things and a simple lifestyle.

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, Knitting, Crochet everything but Scrapbooking! Am obsessed with knitting dishcloths, making aprons and softies. I also make my own soap, moisturiser, bath salts, washing powder etc.

I love collecting anything vintage ie. buttons, pincushions, laces and trims, fabric. I also love paper and hand embroidered kitchen towels. I have some my grandmother made before she was married in the late 1930s.

Favorite Music

I have very eclectic taste when it comes to music. I love everything from Bob Dylan to Leo Sayer (yes, I know)...

Other Things

I love learning to make things, natural products such as shampoo, soap etc. Not a big fan of makeup or any commercial synthetic products.

I love the idea of passing family heirlooms down through the generations. I particularly love old recipes.

I like to be as thrifty as possible (not mean). I find that there is still heaps to give especially in the way of handmade items. There is something special about making clothes out of something vintage or preloved.

I LOVE Souvenir Tea (Kitchen) Towels and plan to host a swap of these shortly as I think it would be so cool to have tea towels from all over the world.

Comment: Tried contacting about the swap, but never heard back. Very disappointing as this is a long-term swap and I can't complete my blanket without the squares. I guess I'll be making them myself.

Comment: Thanks for the wonderful recipe postcard. I have been looking for a good breakfast bar recipe, so I will give yours a go soon. I also love the postcard itself with the iconic melbourne mosaic which I am assuming you made yourself. What a great idea! (sorry it has taken me so long to rate)

Comment: I like that you typed up the recipe, it makes it easier to read! I hope I can find LSA here, these sound good. If I can't find it, maybe I'll find a substitute.

Comment: Hello Ann Marie, Thank you for the recipe you sent to me for the "B Recipe Postcard" Swap. The recipe sounds YUMMY and one I want to try as I am always looking for something different to serve for breakfast or if I attend a brunch or other breakfast event. I look forward to adding it to my postcard collection and more specifically to my "Alphabet Recipe Postcard" collection. I hope we have further opportunities to swap with one another. Until that time arrives, Happy Swapping! Barb sleepingrover2010

I tried rating you several times for the get crafty swap but for some reason it wasn't taking. It finally went through. Just letting you know why it took me so long to rate you. It was a fantastic heart worthy package! Thank you so much!
