Hi! My name is Sara. I am a 34 year-old woman and proud mom of 3 little kids (range 5 years to 1 year).
I have a degree in Microbiology and I am currently a stay-at-home mom and a creative business owner and consutant.
I love the countryside and the beach and I am lucky enough to live in a city that is between the two!
I enjoy crafting, sewing, cooking, decorating my home, spend time with my kids and with my husband, read (although I am finding it difficult to find the time to do all the reading I want). Oh, and I am Pinterest-addicted! (:
About my username: Miau is the portuguese word for meow.
â™¥ M â™¥ stands for handmade,
â™¥ I â™¥ stands for ideas and inspirations
â™¥ A â™¥ stands for crafts and
â™¥ U â™¥ for unique and urban. And I think a cat figure would make a cute logo for my handmade products :-)
I love crafting, specially with fabric, felt, buttons, ribbons, lace, trims.
I love to sew! I do softies, baby items, bags, cases, pouches, clutches, pillows, aprons, placemats, mug rugs. In the last year I started to learn how to sew clothing and I am now sewing my own clothing! I am also learning patchwork and quiliting - it is addicting!
I love to do handmade items for my home's decor, such as wall art, pillows, candle holders, napkin rings, placemats, garlands, etc.
I also do brooches, jewelry (mainly earrings for my personal use), fridge magnets, notebooks, cross-stitch and a bit of embroidery.
I also enjoy ocasionaly paper crafting, like scrapbooking and cardmaking.
On my wishlist: learning how to crochet and to knit!
