Since I was a little girl I have always loved to cook, craft and create. Growing up in an Italian family definitely cemented my love of food and cooking. My dad was a tailor and I spent many afternoons after school in his tailoring factory playing with all things sewing.
After completing my fashion Diploma at East Sydney Tafe I headed to London to follow my fashion dream (however I think I ended up enjoying the travelling more than my fashion dream in those days).
When I returned back home I worked in our family business creating couture wedding and evening gowns. We closed the business in 2013 and I became a School Learning Support Officer at our local hospital school.
After having my beautiful children I continued baking, crafting, sewing and creating. I realised how much joy it gave me every time I sat down to create something whether it be in the kitchen, on the sewing machine or crafting with the kids.
That’s when I decided that we could share our love of creating as family to inspire others to find their creative outlet and enjoy the joy of creating either on their own or with others.
We hope you enjoy our little creative space and that it inspires you to get creative. We would love to see your creations, so tag us on Instagram and Facebook (links at the bottom of this page).
