Craftgawker and some other bits and pieces!

Hello! Well lately I have been busy finishing off my musical theatre degree. I will be finished half way through the year, or at the latest, 91 days! (No, no, I’m not counting down at all!)
I have been finding a little bit of time this year to do some of my crafting too. I think it helps keep me sain... well as sain as I can be!
Well, it’s now Autumn here in Australia! To celebrate the season I have posted a few new items to my Etsy shop including my Autumn Themed, Little Bird 3 piece Notes Set with large note pad, small note pad and sticky memo pad. You can see it here... http://www.etsy.com/listing/89962457
I’d like to say Happy Mother’s Day to all of the UK mothers out there who will be celebrating mothering day this Sunday the 18th. I hope you all have an amazing day. You deserve it!


Craft Gawker:
I thought today I’d share with you a few interesting things I have found online lately. Some of which I am hoping will be helpful to you.
The first website for crafters is www.craftgawker.com. There is also a phone application. It allows you to post and view handmade items. A lot of the post have links to blog posts and other websites where you can purchase the item, or view DIY instructions on how to make it! Other items are just very interesting and unique.
There is also a wedding gawker, food gawker and a dwelling gawker. All worth a look I think!

Welcome!

Hello! welcome to my new blog! Thanks for stopping by and having a look!
I'm hoping that I can used this blog to give you some cool ideas, helpful hints, advice and to also showcase a variety of handmade items (Both mine and others).

I thought it would be good to tell you a little about myself first though!

I'm a 23 year old female living in Victoria, Australia. With two older sisters, not only am I the youngest in my family, I'm also the odd one out! While my parents and sisters spend a lot of their time running, cycling and playing sport, I prefer to spend my time being creative.

I have a jewellery and craft business TazzMck Designs. If you interested in seeing some of my creations you can see them at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Tazzmck

Apart from crafting, I am currently in my final semester of singing, dancing and acting my way through a musical theatre degree. I hope to eventually open up my own preschool and am getting a lot of experience working with children from my day job as a Nanny. (I have been working with a family of 3 young girls for over 2 years now. I started when they were just 3 weeks, 11 months and 2 years old, so as you can imagine I'm pretty attached!)

I come from a big family with over 30 first cousins, so Christmas day is always fun (and chaotic).

I really like animals, and miss having pet rabbits! But I do have 2 short neck turtles and a lizard (A Bearded Dragon named Norbert). I might have to post some picture of them at some stage for you!

I hope that you enjoy my blog and if you have any questions, comments or things that you would like to see posted please let me know.

Thanks for reading!
