I am a mother of one gorgeous girl who was born in May 2019 and a little baby bump due in 2020. Since being at home crafting all day I have found a love for my slow cooker and love trying new recipes, even though they don't always turn out right.
I spend most my time knitting and crocheting different things for my Etsy store, writing long letters to pen pals all over the world, working on cars as I'm a mechanic and learning new facts and languages.
Over the past few years, I have learnt little bits of Maori, French, Japanese, German and Spanish. Not enough that I could speak it fluently but enough to say 'hello' and ask a few questions. I would love to be fluent in another language other than English.
I have a passion for history and love learning about different things that have happened in each country. So far I have learnt a bit about the Vietnam war, the black plague, both world war 1 and 2, the New Zealand Wars and the migration of English to Australia.
Over the past few years, I have been building a collection of postcards from all over the world that I am going to make a scrapbook to teach my baby about different places around the world.
On a cold winters day, if I am not snowboarding or skiing, I would be found watching Netflix or listening to music while enjoying a cup of tea wrapped up in the coziest of slippers or fluffy socks, my favorite hoodie or onesie and a beanie!
I love receiving hand made items like beanies and scarfs as well as embellishments and ephemera. Scrap pieces of paper go amazing in my junk journal and i love filming spreads made from things people send me.
I enjoy a wide range of music from heavy metal to pop to relaxing flowy music. My favourite playlists on Spotify at the moment are The Most Beautiful Songs in the World and We Will Over Come All.
Afroman is one of my favourite artists as well as Ghostmane, Eminem, MGK, The Eagles, Jon Bellion, OMC, Supergroove, Kore, Spawnbrezzie, Snoop Dogg, Ed Sheeran, and Amy Winehouse.
I love history books and the odd romance and action book. Murder mysteries keep me on my toes. As long as the dog doesn't get killed I will happily read it! Though, in all honesty, I mainly only have books to use their pages for crafting. I can't remember the last time I actually read a book. (Other than Poetry). I love Lang Leav's and Rupi Kaur's poetry books.
I love working on my bullet journal or craft journal. I love vintage, rustic and 1980's hippie sort of themes. I feel like that was the sort of time I should have been born in. I have a typewriter that I would love to use more frequently, but I need to find ink ribbon for it.
I've recently started making junk journals and zines more and I am loving how creative I can get with them.
anything quirky really.
I am not a big fan of Halloween or Christmas, I don't usually do any crafting relating to either thing.
Pink is a colour I am not fond of. I don't really use stickers.
To describe my style you may be best to look at my craft Instagram account @snailmail eccentricnincompoop or my main account @devonshire799 I love vintage things and love a good trip to a second hand shop to find new things to reuse. I love using what I have at home to craft and try not to spend too much on crafting supplies. I love postal themed things as well as psychedelic, spiritual ( not religious), 90s/nostalgic, purple or paua themed.
I collect postcards for my daughter Marie - Joanna, in the hopes of one day inspiring her to want to travel the world. It would be awesome if you were to send a post card that it was addressed to her.
