About Me

Hello! My name is Laurel and I like to blog, and to make things.
My blog is a place to document the things I make and do, and to write about the things that happen, in my life.
Blogging is something that I have been doing  since  September 2008, and something that I do enjoy doing. I have been making stuff since my childhood. I grew up in a home where craft was the norm and housework was almost unheard of! I had an amazing childhood, full of journeys and exploration and play and creativity.

I am a Kindergarten teacher, a wife to Mr M, for 20 years, a daughter, sister amd friend. I am a mummma to two beautiful girls, and I am still learning about motherhood as I go.

I love to crochet, to knit and sew. I like journalling and writing and taking photos and cutting and pasting. I  love food and cooking and being at home, and I love nothing more than flowers from my garden in recycled jars, and thrifted sheets on the bed.

I do often wonder if a blog that is just about a life can be meaningful and interesting? Who really cares anyway about my life, or my craft or my struggles or joys? Insert self talk about blogging for self and creating a pictorial story of my journey, blah, blah. To be perfectly honest, I do it for those reasons (and I love it) but I do love the thrill of a new follower, some comments about what I have said or a re-pin. I am open to taking my blog further if the oportunities arrive.

My blog Values:
 SHARING is what drives this blog and connects it to what I value and hold as important.

Sharing is why I started my blog. To share the blogging experience with others, to share pictures of what I had made, to share snippets from my life. I believe in the community of blogging, the sharing of average and beautiful and extraordinary with others, the sharing of the idea that you are not alone.

I intend to share good words from across blogland, to use my small space to link to others, to invite further reading and discussion and thinking. I plan to share tutorials and swaps and link-ups that I enjoy. I will share stories from my life, that may allow personal refelection and connection with others. I will share the things that I create.

I really hope that you enjoy your visit, and please know what a thrill it is to read a comment, and start up a conversation. I would love to  come and visit you in return.
