A cup of tea with me.

Late last year I started a blogging course with the most energetic Pip at Meet me at Mikes to see if it would kickstart me blogging again,  I got very enthusiastic, made some changes, learnt a whole lot of new things and then bam school holidays/Christmas/New Year happened and I haven't had a chance to do anything since. So now we come to the last day of the course and I am having a panic attack that I haven't saved everything but Pip has given us the opportunity to have a virtual cup of tea(I am having a coffee) with her and all the other lovely girls that participated in her ecourse.

There was a little task behind this post which I think is a fab way to end the ecourse. A little q&a about us all.....here goes!

1.Name, state and a bit about what you do on a daily basis (work/parent/art/etc!)?
I am originally from Melbourne but have been living in a French territory, New Caledonia for the past 7 years. It is beautiful, warm, tropical and a wee bit French which I love. I did want to live in Paris when I was a young thing so I guess this is the next best thing. I am a stay at home mum who loves to potter around and have coffee with friends.


2.Favourite things to do in my spare time?
I love to sew, crochet, play with dolls and read especially while sitting on the beach under a palm tree watching the kids swim and I love hanging out with my little family.

3. Favourite place to be?
That is a tricky one, I have many favourite places but maybe it would be under the aforementioned palm tree reading with a nice cocktail!

4.Favourite things to eat/drink?
I do have a soft spot for French patisserie, champagne, cheeses maybe it would just be all thing French!!

5.Favourite inspirations?  
I love to be inspired by what goes on around me and that can be local or what I see on the internet/tv or hear on the radio. I think if you watch you see and if you see you think and if you think you just might do!

6.Something i want to know more about?
 Why is it that sunets are so beautiful?!

7.Some favourite blogs
 Here is just a few-
ZZoommm...... my son and his love of photography. 
Attic24     love the crochet.
Badskirt      always busy.
Wisecraft     just because.
Rose Minuscule    love the craft
Kris Bourcier    local artist and friend
Junko Wong    a little bit of dolly love
and of course Meet me at Mikes

Thanks Pip for hosting this ecourse, any ladies thinking of doing it I would highly recommend it. Brushing up on thing you already know or learning something new it is all there.
