A journey of a thousand miles ...

... begins with a single step, and this is my first step into the crafty land of blogging!

I need an outlet - I love all things sewing, designing, cooking and home stuff, and I'm looking forward to throwing my ideas and thoughts out into the ether and seeing what comes back.

I've been reading other peoples blogs for a few months, and now it's my turn to pipe up!

I only learnt about blogging and the indie craft scene this year at the Melbourne Stitches and Craft Show. I was lucky enough to hear Bianca from Hollabee and Ink & Spindle talk about starting a home based craft business. I was inspired, to say the least! What the wonderful people at the craft show have achieved through passion, dedication, hard work and a bundle of laughs is amazing.

So here I am. Having a go. I hope you enjoy my journey - although I suspect no-one will know I'm here for a while and this will be my journey journal. Either way - I'm looking forward to it!

Anyway, it seems a blog post is not a "real" blog post without a pic. So here's one to start. I was travelling around the Marysville area on the weekend, and was taken with the beauty of the trees healing themselves after the Black Saturday Fires ...

My sketchbook got a good workout after the trip - nature really is the best idea factory!

Talk soon!
