We’re embarking on a new chapter together and life has changed so much since this time last year. I’m not usually very good at looking back and reflecting, but seeing as this is a natural phase of transition for me it feels appropriate - and September has that ‘new year’ feel to it doesn’t it?
Hello! I’m excited to introduce a new feature here on the blog: Mother / Maker - where I will be talking to other designer/maker/mothers who are living out their small business dreams alongside the very demanding role of motherhood.
So you’ve made the change to natural products in your self-care and beauty regime, you use all natural ingredients when you clean your house; but what about when it comes to decorating the space for your precious little bundle?
When I first learned to crochet any yarn would do. These days I’m much more concerted. I can spend hours researching a new yarn; looking for the exact colour, texture, fibres. It’s a passion (obsession?) and sticking to some rules around which colours work best with my designs as well as only using natural fibres help me to narrow down my options in a sea of yarn possibilities.
I’m excited to say that I have been featured over on 91 Magazine’s blog as part of their ‘meet the maker’ series. I’m a huge fan of 91 Magazine, so you can imagine how happy I was to be contacted by them.
It’s been an odd start to the year, energy-wise. Things have taken a little while to get going, and I’ve seen online that there are lots of others also feeling this way. Motivation aside, I’ve still found plenty to get inspired about and have actually been thinking up a tonne of new ideas and designs.
The new year came and went and I’m just about getting started with my ‘resolutions’, or starting to think about them anyway. New Year’s is usually a great time for me to get going with fresh ideas, intentions and habits; but this year seemed to kick off with a sigh rather than the usual spark.
