Who am I?
I live in Sydney and I love and enjoy being artsy and crafty. I love to craft, shop, garden and travel than doing household chores. I work full time as a Business systems analyst in one of the major Australian companies here in Australia
My exposure to handmade crafts started when I was still little. My mom used to recycle old clothes into nightwear, make fabric yoyos out of scraps and create them into beautiful placemats or table runners, crocheted curtains with a peacock design. These skills she inherited from her mother. I remember my grandmother used to make dresses for us.
My Dad also liked to create things by hand. He used to recycle old tables or tables with broken legs into a chair or a wooden toy wagon. When he retired from work, to keep himself busy he would make small beds for my nieces and nephews and would put wheels on it so it was easy to tuck or push them under their parents bed and not occupy space during daytime.
I love making things by hand. The smaller it is the crazier and better as I get a real feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment when it is done.
My love for crafting and travelling inspired me in 2011 to start a charity work where I provide dresses to the less-fortunate children around the world. I finally found something worthwhile to do where I can make use of my hobby and craft skills to help other people and it is not just any kind of help but helping most especially the disadvantaged children. If you want to know more about this campaign, please visit my Dress A Girl Australia blog here or my facebook page here.
So sometimes if you are wondering if someone makes it or wish someone can make it visit my site. You may find the handmade treasure you are looking for.
My handmade items are very limited in quantity as they are made by hand so sometimes just one of a kind. All unique and excellent in quality. For anything about buttons and badges, click here.
Thank you and Happy Crafting, gardening and travelling!
