madeit new seller quick five :: Willow Tree Cards
How did you find about madeit?
From it's American equivalent. I thought, Australia must have something like this - so I googled and here we are!
Explain your style
I love natural shapes, lines and fabrics. Hand drawn, simple items with an element of quirkiness. I also really love things that are inspired by nature. I'm not a fan of "fussy" styles that are heavily floral or embellished.
What makes you happy?
Hearing my 2 year old sing the "Play School" song over the baby monitor and watching her (messily) explore her own creativity. That feeling when you drive out of your driveway about to go somewhere that you've been looking forward to going. When bedtime has arrived and you can start creating without an insistent hand tugging at your arm and when you come home from somewhere fun to find your darling husband has done the housework!
What makes you sad?
Children whose parents have the means to look after them properly and decide not to. Children whose parents can't look after them properly because they don't have the mental or physical means and children who lose their families in tragedy. I feel that children should be cherished, nourished and taught how to be independent and secure in themselves - that starts at home.
What can't you live without?
Time. Time to play with my daughter, Willow. Time to be with my husband by ourselves, time to make memories as a family and time to be creative on my own. Also, good coffee!
