Hi I'm Em, pleased to meet you...


Wow. So many new friends and fans this week both here and on facebook. I can't even begin to say how thankful I am. Feeling super blessed right now. Thank you!

I figured that with so many new faces around here it might be a perfect opportunity to reintroduce myself. And for my regular readers you never know you may just find out something new!


My name is Em and I am a wife of one and mum of two. My husbands name is Todd and my babies names are Mia and Ryan. This blog here and my Etsy store are my creative outlets. Sometimes working on the two may slip between the cracks of life and they get neglected more than they should. But these outlets are my sanctuary. My happy places. And I love the way they enable me to connect with so many different people from so many different places. It really makes my heart smile.


I am an Australian and we are an Air Force family. We are currently in the process of relocating from Wagga Wagga in central New South Wales to Amberley, near Brisbane and the Gold Coast in Queensland. And when I say in the process I really mean in. As I sit typing this I am surrounded by the chaos of packing boxes, stacks of framed photographs and piles of stuff. And the movers come to pack up everything else on wednesday. Three days from now. Craziness! But it is the best kind of craziness because it means we are moving back to where our family is. And for that we are so thankful.


My favourite colour is pink. Although I have a real thing for red at the moment. My favourite food is ceasar salad, and mexican. Oh my how I love mexican. Lets not forget sushi. It rocks. Lets be honest now, I love most food! My favourite drink is coke, in a glass with tonnes of ice, so good. But I'm not drinking any soft drinks, juices or sugary drinks right now, but boy am I craving it. My favourite thing in the world to wear is my pyjamas, and I always look forward to the end of the day when I can relax in them. Especially on a cold winters night, with a good book and a hot cup of something. Speaking of reading, my favourite books right now are the Hunger Games series. Obsessed! I swore never to get caught up in the hype, but I gave in and I am so glad I did. Twilight is next on my hit list, I have only seen two of the movies but I hear the books are awesome. At least thats what the entire world tells me!

I can't stand feet. Just the thought of anyone elses feet touching mine freaks me out. Todd and the kids are the only exceptions. I get overwhelmed with fear and anxiety in new and unfamiliar situations. I have a hard time opening up and trusting people. Trust is a gift and I don't give it easily. I still feel like a teenager sometimes despite the fact that I am almost 29. I'm sure one day I will feel like a grown up! I get scared about putting myself out there and not measuring up. Not sure exactly what I am wanting to measure up to though.

So that's a little about little ole me.

 Now I want to know about YOU! Leave a comment with a link your blog, facebook page, shop, whatever you like so I can stop by and learn a little more about YOU, and so I can thank you for being an awesome fan of my blog and facebook page. You all rock!


Thanks again for sending so much love my way.
