This is my blog. Welcome. Here's a bit about me.
I am a mum of 3 people. I like in Fitzroy, Melbourne. I used to have a shop, but I don't any more!
I edit this blog: Meet Me at Mike's.
I also edit the ace lady website : JustB
I'm a writer of several books & stationery bits and bobs:
Meet Me at Mike's - Hardie Grant Books
Sew La Tea Do - Hardie Grant Books
Make Hey! While The Sun Shines - Hardie Grant Books
Meet Me at Mike's Craft Journal - Hardie Grant Books
Make Hey! Stationery Range - Hardie Grant Books
The Friendly Society (writing this one now!) - Penguin Books
I have been writing Frankie Magazine's craft pages for the last 5 years.
In 2013, I begin writing for Mollie Makes Magazine.
I've been profiled in The Age (Melbourne) Magazine, M Magazine, LMNOP, Cleo, Madison Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Madison, Inside Out, The Design Files, Decor8, Frankie Magazine, Flossie, Peppermint, The Sydney Morning Herald, Girl With A Satchel, Modish, Notebook, House and Garden, Toffee, Herald Sun, The Australian Women's Weekly, Dolly, Marie Claire, Michigirl, Daily Imprint, Jetstar Magazine, The Canberra Times, The West Australian, American Express Magazine, The Melbourne Times, Australian Parents Magazine and a lot more places like that.
I've also been featured as:
The Age (Melbourne) Magazine named me one of their Top 100 Most Influential Melbourne people in 2009. Cool.
Cleo named me as 'Cleo's Next Top Blogger' in 2009. Aw thanks.
And Cosmpolitan nominated me as one of their Women of The Year in 2009. I think they got the wrong lady.
You might have heard me on 3RRR, Radio National, ABC Melbourne, ABC Perth, ABC Sydney or ABC Queensland. Or maybe not. And you might have seen me on telly. On The Circle. Or on The 7.30 Report piece about Frankie. Or in Anna Brownfield's crafty film (which premiered at the Melbourne International Film Festival this year) 'Making It Handmade'. But if you didn't, I don't mind a bit.
Things I have written or made are featured in the books:
Quilting For Peace - Katherine Bell
So Pretty Crochet - Amy Palanjian
Mollie Makes Crochet - Mollie Makes
Keep Calm & Cast On - Erika Knight
Granny Chic - Tif Fussell and Rachelle Blondel
I founded the charity toy campaign Softies for Mirabel through our blog and shop six years ago : it's a handmade toy drive to benefit The Mirabel Foundation.
I am the founder of Brown Owls : a worldwide craft club for ace people too.
I like to talk about blogging, too, and have spoken at Craft Victoria, State of Design Festival, Social Media Club Melbourne and the Problogger Melbourne bloggers conference about blogging with heart and smarts.
