Here I am.
I’m Zena, a thirty-something Australian with a mild craft obsession. I knit, I sew, I bake bickies with my kids, and four days a week I pretend to be a serious engineering professional. This blog is for the crafty stuff.
But why a blog, and why now? As a kid I regularly got a diary from Santa, and on Christmas night I’d write a long dear diary entry, documenting what I had for breakfast and other important facts of the day. I might write something on Boxing Day too. And that would be it for the year. I tried again as a teenager, but then it was more “I love him soooooo much but he doesn’t even know I’m alive (sob sob)”. I’m embarrassed I was such a cliche, and I’m very glad those journals didn’t survive to taunt me.
So I don’t have a great history of keeping journal. But I do love craft, and I love craft blogs. And lately I’ve been composing blog posts in my head about my various projects. So one of my new years resolutions for 2012 was to actually start a blog, and to make sure I post at least once a week. The other resolution was to start running. Wonder which one (if any) I manage to keep?!
I’m a mummy, to three small boys; Sam and Archie are four, Ollie is two. They are gorgeous, amazing, clever, funny, independent little souls and I love them to bits. They also challenge and frustrate me. So while I am a mummy, I don’t want this to be a mummy blog. Feel free to pull me up on it if you think I’m straying too far in that direction.
So that is me. I’ll write a proper craft post tomorrow, with photos, provided I can work that one out.
