:: 10 Things I Realised About Creativity When I Went On The Radio (& A Recipe for Corn Chowder)

Yesterday, Rachel Power (author/editor of Motherhood & Creativity), Clare Bowditch and myself were on the radio to talk about juggling parenting and creativity, with a bit of a focus on Rachel’s (great) new book. I love doing radio. There is none of the stress of looking nice and all of the opportunity to talk about things that are important to

:: Eat A Croque!

  Hello! Are you well? I am well. My wrist is all healed and I am going to start crocheting again tomorrow. I am looking forward to it as I was quite forlorn sans crochet over the weekend. It was still nice, don’t get me wrong, but I have a blanket to finish and its been staring at me from

:: Behold! The Mirabel Bun-Anza!

  People can be great, can’t they? I think they can. Sometimes you might read the news and doubt the goodness that’s out there, pinging around the place, but if you read this news right here on my blog, you will be persuaded otherwise (even if it’s just for a little while!) When I did a little call-out for handmade

Taking Stock : March

  I thought it was HIGH TIME I did my March Taking Stock. I’ve really been doing quite a lot of different things and it’s always pretty nice to reflect on that and realise where I am (and how lucky I am, I guess!) If you’d like to Take Stock in March – head to the bottom of this post

:: 52 Hellos: Week 10

  We’re a bit lucky this week, because Naomi has sent us her hello. I love this hello, not only because it’s beautiful, but because of the story about the rain-umbrella-no-lady! That is TOTALLY something that would happen to me!  I am so sorry it happened to YOU, Naomi! Gah! I think it can be hard to process kindness, sometimes.

:: 52 Hellos: Week 09

Let’s hello? Shall we? Do let’s! Here are this week’s letters (with a huge thank you so much to their senders, Ashlea and Jo!) click each image to enlarge and read more easily (if that works better for you!)   Did you read Ashlea’s letter? Man. I loved reading it. I loved the bits about the green lawn and Fraser

:: What I’ve Been Doing

Hello kittens! How are you going? I’m going okay. Having a bit of a weird week, but I’m soldiering on. My horoscope told me that this was going to be such an awesome year, but I am born on the cusp of Pisces and Aries, so maybe I’m reading the wrong one?! Have you been doing A Year Of Australian

:: Win An Advance Copy Of ‘Craft For The Soul’

  Hi gang! Are you well? I am well. I’ve been doing some early morning crochet/coffee drinking/Brothers & Sisters watching. It’s a good way to start the day, a bit like getting in some ‘day off’ before the work day starts, if that makes any sense! I wanted to let you know that my next round of eCourses has been

:: Five Random Things

  Do you want to play Five Random Things? I am sure you do! It’s quite fun to mine the depths of your you-ness and come ups with a few weird/interesting facts to share. Like, what could be better than that? (Except watching Family Feud with a cup of tea and a bit of crochet in your lap?!) Here are

:: Win A My Abuelo’s Mexican Feast Prize Pack

  Some people know how to make really beautiful books and Daniella Germain is one of those kinds of people. You might remember that she wrote a book called My Abuela’s Mexican Feast a couple of years ago? Well this book is the follow-up. Her first book (a tribute to her grandmother) was super great, so I was excited to

:: Beautiful Brush Script Fonts To Download

Hullo! I love finding cute fonts. It seems like everyone is using these gorgeous brush script fonts at the moment, the kind that look like they were painted by hand. Perhaps you’d like to use them too and didn’t quite know where to find them? Well I know and I am keen to share! These ones are a few of

:: 52 Hellos : Week 07

  It’s Friday! Yay! I’ve tucked my work away for a while to read some cute letters that arrived for #52hellos this week and watch my favourite movie. This week’s hello is from my cute friend Betsy. Naw. I met Betsy in Bali on the Big Hearted Business Creative Retreat, but she’s also in the choir with my aunty so

:: Slow Down Rewards

  Let’s talk about this… I’m making a granny square blanket. I’m actually doing it pretty quickly, but it’s a repetitive task and ‘quickly’ means it’ll be done in a month or so. I LOVE doing things that take a bit of time. I understand, though, that not everyone is like me. Some people just can not be bothered to

:: Taking Stock: February

Hullo there. How are things with you? Things are good with me, I’ve been doing some fun stuff and feeling the year gather momentum. Can you believe that we’ll be into March in a couple of weeks? I totally CAN NOT. I thought I’d write a taking stock post, before February whizzes by.  There’s almost nothing better than slowing down
