I’m a quirky Canadian creator who lived a most extraordinary existence in North America, Japan, England and Greece before ending up in Germany.
…having a blast with my retro sewing machine
…am the very proud mama of my very own completely self-produced book-baby
…have begun publishing my Confessions of a Refashionista e-book series
…and am also producing my own series of groovilicious DIY webisodes!
I’m often asked why I work so hard creating & sharing refashioning/DIY tutorials & thrifted/second hand outfit inspiration for free – this is why.
In the 4 short years that I have been sewing & creating I’ve managed to amass a fabulously large (yet completely organized) stash consisting of 100% vintage, recycled & second hand fabrics, embellishments + loads of other awesome diy materials. I share my office/craft area with my munchkin’s bedroom & thanks to a lot of creative space management have managed to ‘comfortably’ squeeze absolutely everything into my tiny 2m x 3m corner.
Pop on your headphones, crank up the volume & have a listen to the eclectic mix of tunes that get my maker blood pumpin’…
