I'm a SAHM - only 9 months new at it though! My baby boy was born in March 2009 and is a pure delight!
I'm a Horticulturalist by trade, but for the past few years been working as Personal Assistant & Executive Assistant. Now working 2 days a week from home as a Personal Assistant and Festival Producer! And freelancing on special projects.
I am also a family person, have a big family, am one of 6 kids and we are all really close. I live in Victoria, Australia in a regional city 250km north of Melbourne. But my husband and I have lived mostly in Melbourne and more recently in Sydney. But now back in my home area & close to family and friends. I am also a christian.
My love is plants, earthly things, creativeness through sewing & embroidery and any other crafty things like knitting, card making, beading etc. Will have a go at anything & love making practical things and gifts!
I'm also a lover of Modern Cloth Nappies (MCN) and have made all my son's nappies - see blog.
My favourite colour is Green - represents nature and the earth!
I have a fascination with birds, only with craft though not the real live ones! which is kind of weird as I have a phobia of chooks, geese, swans, ducks. But I love embroidery birds, sticker birds, fabric with birds...
I love all kinds of music and play the piano! Mostly love Dixie Chicks, John Denver, Andre Rieu, Ben Harper, DC Talk, Brooke Fraser, Fleetwood Mac, Hillsong, Gossling, Jars of Clay.
Love any gardening shows - Gardening Australia.
Love cooking shows - The Chef & The Cook
Love Packed to the Rafters, Desperate Housewives, Aussie farm shows!
A good cup of tea! Shared with family & friends and especially my husband at night after dinner and when bubs is in bed! Especially love English Breakfast Tea, strong, black & Green tea. Love all herbal teas too. Any time is cup of tea time!
Our Golden Retriever dog, Bella. Beautiful, lovely natured dog. And especially good around our baby too!
Walking, swimming, yoga & spin cycle classes.
Farm life - grew up on a dairy farm, loved milking the cows, feeding the calves, driving the tractor & just enjoying the lovely fresh country air!
*Driving - especially day drives, holiday drives - anywhere I can sit & chat with my husband and listen to good music!
*Organic products - especially skincare & especially AUSTRALIAN made.
*Fabric - love all kinds of patterned fabrics (any fat quarters) & love minkee/minky fabric for making cloth nappies.
*Lipbalms, can't leave the house without one. Don't like the real sticky ones though and not a fan of lipstick.
*Can't leave the house without water, lipbalm and tissues!
Just so you know, I like to recycle all my mail packaging - so you may receive your parcel in a recycled envelope or postal pack. I always ask the Post Office to put on Australian stamps as I know many people love collecting stamps and especially from other countries.
I'm vegetarian, well eat chicken and fish - but mainly have a vegetarian diet, so would prefer no meat recipes, unless chicken or fish.
I love milk chocolate, rocky road is my favourite and love any with caramel centres. Oh, but I have just joined Weight Watchers (Oct 09) as need to lose a few baby weight kilos, so maybe I shouldn't add I love chocolate! Oh well, everyone has to have an indulgence.
I package my parcels/letters with love and care & hope they arrive safely to you.
