However, some things have remained static such as my love for crochet and creating.
I enjoy working with as many up cycled and natural elements as possible
The beginning of my journey into artisan crafts began from the age of seven, when my nan taught me to crochet and knit. I knew in my little heart way back then, that these would remain as a focal point throughout my life.
My interest in up cycling began quite a while ago when I was living in the outback. Due to resources for arty things being quite scarce as I was a couple of hours from civilisation, I had .to be quite flexible with what I could use for my artistic outlet. I began making dreamcatchers from the locking rings on olive oil tubs, naturally shed feathers and tropical vines. I wish I had photos of these wares as they truly were beautiful. I also collected bottles from the pub next to the cafe where I worked and wrapped them in dried vines with hot glue. Both of these items I stocked in the small tourist gift shop. The local population was under 100, so I relied on tourists to purchase my wares and I was surprised they sold so well.
Unfortunately, I followed the city headlights after returning to NSW and began to lose my self into consumerism. Fortunately for me, I had one of those grand ephiphanies that most of us do over our life and realised I had to get back to the basics again.
Spending time with those I love, cuddling our rescue dogs, watching sci-fi and docos, enjoying the wildlife in our yard, creating, reading and basically just feeling at one with nature.
So, here I am with my zest for life in my little corner of the world at Boho Things.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know me.
