This is a time for reflection. A time for calm, for enjoying simple pleasures. For considered thought. For gentleness.
I’m one of the lucky ones. I’ve had a wonderfully colourful working life. I’ve done a myriad of things. I’ve worked in a pottery shop, been a teacher’s aide, worked both overseas and here in IT recruitment for large multinationals. I’ve created two separate businesses from scratch – a scrapbooking product manufacturing and wholesale business with my daughter, and more recently a beautiful haberdashery that I just stepped away from.
Together with my husband, whom I’m madly in love with and have been since our first date over four decades ago, I’ve raised three daughters – strong beautiful women each one. And I’m completely head-over-heels crazy about my two gorgeous young grandsons. We’re finally building our dream house, and I’m playing and teaching classical piano.
And since I was a young girl, I have been a maker.
This is my notebook. I’m glad to have you along as I enjoy the simple pleasures of making – sewing and knitting a handmade wardrobe and sharing it with you.
