Tell us a bit about yourself?

I am a photographer & Mum to 2 little girls, Jemima who is almost 5 & Zoe who is almost 3. We live as a family of four on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. We love living near the beach!

Can you explain your craft/art and the materials you like to use?
I love fabric.....& have fallen in love with all the amazing online fabric stores all over the world. It is so easy to browse & shop from the comfort of your own lounge room! Lately I have been creating fabric wall art with embroidery hoops as well as a few other bits & pieces.

I love to change things up a bit so sometimes you will find different products in my store from fabric covered hair ties, magnets & hair clips, or greeting cards made from all the gorgeous papers I find.

How long have you been creating and how did you get into making handmade goodies?
I have always been creative & opened up my Made it store over a year ago now. I really love having time to myself to be create in the evenings once the girls are tucked up in bed! For me making my handmade goodies is an escape & some time out from the housework & all that being a Mum entails.

How do you juggle motherhood & crafting/managing your business?
I don't juggle it as well as I should - some days all I want to do is spend time creating - so if the girls are happy to sit & draw, paint etc....then I might be able to sneak in a bit of creative time. Other wise it is easier & more productive to wait till they are asleep! My photography business is also something that is keeping me busy & is something I mainly work on during the weekends when my husband is able to be at home with the girls. There are never enough hours in the day to do all I need to do & all I would like to do......

Do you have any advice to other Mothers who are wanting to start creating handmade goodies?
Go for it!! The crafting community is such a fantastic outlet & you meet so many people at markets, through the forums & of course through all the wonderful blogs! I am a blog lover too & my list of must read blogs grows & grows every day!!
