Hi I'm Cathie and I love to bake, make, create and photograph my adventures along the way. I have three children and I love to get them involved in my world and teach them all about baking, creating and making it a fun experience. I am constantly trying out new recipes and making lots of craft with the kids and hoping to inspire others to do the same. That is why I share my tested recipes and my adventures with my online friends and it really makes me happy when someone tells me that they absolutely love a particular recipe or even that my photographs make them smile.
Hi! My name is Leisl, and I am a wife: mother : knitter : seamstress : photographer : writer. I love riding my bike, telling jokes and being as green as I can be. You can read more about me and my crafty adventures on Jorth.blogspot.com. See you there!
Kate Pickle
I am an early childhood educator and mum of four. I live on a small rural property called ‘The Pickle Farm’ and my blog, Picklebums, has articles about gentle parenting, family food, activities for kids, free printables and anything else that pops up in my crazy life.
Melissa Darr
Hi I'm Melissa, a wife and stay at home mum to one very energetic little boy. I'm an avid baker and cook and love to experiment in the kitchen when I don't have a little person hanging off my legs. I'm a messy cook when I'm being creative and I hate washing up afterwards. I love styling and photographying food and love to read cookbooks for leisure. To relax I enjoy gardening, reading and bargain hunting at my local op shop. In my spare time I enjoy restoring recycling old furniture and giving it a second life.
Nicole Avery
Nicole Avery is a Melbourne mum to five beautiful kids aged four to 15. She is the master organiser behind the popular parenting blog Planning With Kids and the author of a book by the same name, where she shares tips and tricks for organising the chaos of family life. She is slightly addicted to spreadsheets, tea, running and, of course, planning!
Hi, I'm Steph and most days you can find me writing about Australian design for Mum, Kids and Home over on Bondville, as well as bringing up two beautiful girls. If you are in Sydney, you might like to join us at our abcd meet-ups that I organise for art, craft and design bloggers, to encourage (mostly) work from home women to get out from behind their computers and meet in real life. I also have a digital marketing consultancy, specialising in wedding industry, lifestyle, art, craft, design and kids small businesses. In my spare time (who are we kidding). I try to keep up with my yoga practice, visit family on the Sunshine Coast, and the USA, go camping, get the most out of our zoo membership, bake, garden, dabble in a little art and craft and take photos. Please stop by at Bondville and say Hi - I'd love to meet you (I'm @sbond on Instagram).
Hi, I'm Tina. I'm a wife to one husband and a mum to five children and we live on the beautiful South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. When I'm not blogging at Tina Gray {dot} Me, I'm being mum and wife, trying to create a bit of organisation in Chez Gray, playing tourist in my own town, taking lots of photos, eating sushi and playing music loud enough for my teenagers to tell me to turn it down.
