Introduce yourself...

Hi! I'm Rie (actually Marie but Rie is way better!), this is my blog and I'm happy you are here reading it....but who are you? Are you a crafter or do you just like craft?  Are you here in Australia or someplace else in the world?  Do you drink tea or are you a coffee addict?  Come on, tell me.

This is me...

The above photo was taken 5 months ago with my beautiful baby girl, Delaney on her first day home from the hospital.  I also have a 3yo son, Joseph, who is currently at the annoying question state of childhood "Who bought this", "Who made that", "What are the cows looking at", "Why are they doing that"  etc.
~ I also have a bloke in my life and in April, we'll be celebrating 18 years together!
~ I am a crocheter who likes to knit and tries to sew.
~ I can't arrange flowers or keep my house tidy.
~ I love cups of tea in fine china cups and am currently missing Melbourne because there is no-where down here that sells decent raspberry licorice bullets!
~ We moved down here (waves hello) near Hobart, Tasmania, Australia - so we are down here towards the bottom of the world!
~ I gave up my job in an office to become a stay-at-home-mum and have no plans to ever go back!
~ I have terrible, terrible handwriting.
~ I am trying to eat more healthy for the sake of my children - trying to set the best example for them.
~ I wish I didn't have to do housework so I could craft more.
~ Even though I have heaps of projects on the go, I am lusting over Arne & Carlos' blanket & want to start one! :
