I do love my blog here, and even when she’s left for weeks at a time to just be in existence without new stories (it does make me feel guilty!), I love blogging. And in fact, blogging is how this whole business came about really.
I started a personal blog in 2008 and discovered a whole new world that I had no idea existed. I started to follow many sewing blogs, and as I had always loved fabrics and making, became very much involved with the local crafting ‘gang’. Brown Owls, a social crafting group started by AMAZING woman Pip Lincolne, back in those days was located in a warehouse in the back of Hawthorn. Kirsty (from Kootoyoo) and Pip were so lovely and ‘newcomers’ to the Brown Owls group were always welcome.
And now, 5 years later, it’s me that now feels so privileged to hold those same Brown Owls socials in our studio every second month. Shannon from Miss Jackson cafe in St Kilda hosts at her place every other month. We have both been ‘around’ from the beginnings in Hawthorn and love that now we have a space of our own now to be able to hold the monthly get togethers. It’s fun! And there’s cake! Anyhoo, I’m about to pop the post up about next Thursday’s Brown Owls in the Brown Owls blog and Facebook page and just headed into a little reminiscing first!
