Hi! I’m Monnie. I’m in my early 30’s and I live in Adelaide, Australia.
I started this blog/website as a way to keep myself busy after I was made redundant during COVID-19. Or Voldemort. Or the Roni. Whatever you like to call it, I needed something to be focused on – even though I have plenty of craft things to do, sometimes my craft room can feel like a big pile of clothes that you don’t know how to start sorting through. This should keep me in check a little bit.
I am a kid at heart and my younger siblings help me with that 🙂
In this photo of me, I am dressed up as – yep, Isabelle from Animal Crossing! She is such a joy and always smiling – which is what I love about her! And the game is such a great way to relax and unwind from the world.
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
I’ve been online for most of my life, previously ran monniecakes.com (for baking recipes which was quite popular) and launched my own cake decorating business from that in 2009 which I ran for 5 years. I burnt myself out on it (sadly) and needed to go back to normal employment in 2013. Since then I’ve bounced through various industries and my last job was in freight and logistics.
I like a lot of different crafts, not limited to sewing, paper craft, baking and photography. I used to work as a graphic designer, so I will give anything a go!
When we aren’t all locked down, I also play inline hockey, and when the weather is mint, I go mountain bike riding with my fiancé.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the site 🙂
