Hi there, and welcome on my blog. My name is Gwen, I’m a French stay-at-home mama, living in sunny Brisbane, Australia. Our family is made up of Miss P (4), Little E (also known as Little Dude, 2) and our adorable 11-year-old doggie, Jano. Our home is a bi-cultural and bilingual one and with a toddler who is learning to speak, it leads to some very funny and cute incidents.
Crafting and baking are what I do in my spare time.
I’m a self-taught sewer. I needed a creative outlet after I decided to become a stay-at-home mum and sewing was the perfect solution. I got to make some cute clothes for my daughter and save money in the process. As soon as I first used my sewing machine, I was hooked!
I also knit (a lot!), do a little bit of embroidery and some very, very, very basic crochet. I want to learn more about crochet though, now I just need to find some time to fit it all in!
I got my love of crafting from my mum. When I was little we spent a lot of time together, knitting and chatting. She’s the one who taught me everything I know about crafts, except sewing. She’s the Queen of crafts, my mum. She does EVERYTHING. You can see some of the things she made for the kids on this blog and if you’re interested in seeing more, go check her blog. It’s all in French, but you can still see the pics :)
This blog is a place for me to share the things I make, bake and talk about our family. There are some tutorials and recipes… I hope you like it!
