You dream, day in, day out about getting a house big enough where you can have your own creative space, where everything is where YOU left it, and you know exactly where everything is.

You dream of the day where you have a room for all your creative vices.

So you ask, where DID I get my shoes?

I have always loved shoes.

Loved different and unique shoes. Loved good quality shoes. But these shoes came at a price (which is why we work I guess). I have followed an amazing lady from Dunedin for quite some time, her name is Lou...

If you asked me a few years ago about quilting and making quilts I would have laughed, possibly sniggered and said that I was too young for that. While at times I do feel old (not helped by the fact my husband tells me I am old relatively frequently), I am definitely n...

Waiting, waiting, waiting...

After hours and hours of uploading products and ensuring the design is how I want it, I finally get my website to a place in which I am happy with it (though I am sure there are still PLENTY of things I can do to improve it.)

Well the time has come again to rebrand. To develop and push the boundaries. 

I started off designing at a young age. I love all kinds of crafts; from paint to fabric, drawing to baking, paper to building blocks. How can I put everything I do into one bra...
