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! Scrap-booking, documenting the everyday, finding clever ideas and home decor (oh and lets not forget planning holidays) are where its at for me. I should also add 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 peace conditions 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. 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 you'd call "computer savvy)" I have been able to set up my little etsy shop (ByRachelHodge) and sell my designs. However, my etsy store isn't the only place you can come across my designs. I am so privileged to be also designing for The Digital Press! So that about sums me up... designer, clever ideas finder, mum and wife :)
