Small Blog Meet!


Hello! I'm linking up with Lynne from Lily's Quilts for her Small Blog Meet for my second time. I had such a great time last month getting to know new people and having some conversations which lasted days over email! So I've been looking forward to this one.

Small Blog Meet

To those who are stopping by for the first time, welcome! My name is Jodi, I'm a mum with a 3 year old boy, Tully and 11 month old baby girl, Eve Lily. Earlier this year, I decided to take up blogging mostly to take photos of all the wonderful and beautiful things in my world, to remind myself I'm exactly where I want to be and to challenge myself to take risks, grow, try new things. I was sleep deprived, I'd taken time off from studying history (my other love) and a second baby kept me me at home much more than I was used to. It's been a journey I didn't really expect, one of getting to know myself better, challenging some old ways of thinking about things, and, my biggest surprise, starting a little store on Etsy.
I'd love you to have a look around, meet my family, let me show off some of my creations. November is a big month for me. I'm giving 20% of my sales to my dear friends in Poland who, at Christmas, make sure even their poorest neighbours have a beautiful, warm Christmas celebration. You can read more about that story here. And I'm busily getting ready for market this weekend. Oooh! I can't wait!
Thanks again for coming and saying hi! I'm looking forward to seeing your beautiful work too!

  10. The sweet little baby makes that quilt!! I am so glad I found your blog through the small blog meet. It is such a great way to find others with the same interests! Did you go to the Houston Market? I would have loved to go to that, maybe one day. I am a follower now and I hope you will pop on over to my blog as well. I can't wait to see more from you & I hope you have a great day!

I so love your comments! I read all of them and reply when I can. If you don't hear back, I'm lost under a mound of scraps or outside jumping on the trampoline with the kids. Jodi. xx
