Welcome to my little site here! So as it turns out, I'm a stay at home Aussie Mum to not 1, or 2 but 3 boys (4 if you include the hubby) and a little girl who carries A LOT OF SASS. Life's a tad busy, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Documenting the everyday via scrapbooking or project life, finding new recipes the whole family loves and home decor is where its at for me. With loving home decor I should also mention that I may or may not have a slight obsession with K-Mart, and if I do (which I am not admitting to) it is completely for the good of the family. Yup.....
As it goes, being a stay at home mum is great and all but there are those times where you seem to have accomplished absolutely nothing for the day but change nappies, vacuum house, pick up toy's, break up fights, change more nappies, re-vacuum (the kids get it dirty by ONLY LOOKING AT IT, seriously...), negotiate truths with re-fighting children, pick up the supposedly packed away toys... did I mention the nappies? #SIGH....Look, I have it pretty good as it turns out, I happen to get a few hours to myself in the arvo when both little ones are having a snooze or time out with a movie. This is GREAT, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I feel, gee how do I say this... BORED OUT OF MY MIND and so I started thinking, what on earth could I possibly do.... (insert light-bulb moment) I enjoy scrap-booking.... I happen to like creating things.... So why don't I combine the two and make my own designs? So....
That's exactly what I did! After a bit of googling, well I'll be honest A LOT of googling (i'm not exactly what you'd call "computer savvy") I have been able to set up my little Etsy shop (ByRachelHodge) and sell my digital designs. However, my Etsy store isn't the only place you can come across my designs. I am so so privileged to be also designing for The Digital Press! So that about sums me up... designer, no longer bored mum and wife :)
