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 darling husband – my best friend and ally for nearly five decades, I’ve raised three daughters, strong beautiful women each one, and I’m completely head-over-heels crazy about our two gorgeous young grandsons. We’ve finally built our dream house, I’ve embarked on a new career as a teacher of the Alexander Technique, and I’m loving 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.
