Grow Your Blog 2015

Hello and Welcome!!

This is my little place in Cyber Land - Simple Things.  It is a place where I post sometimes regularly, sometimes sporadically about a whole range of things.  I am a disabled mum who is slowly adjusting to a 'new normal' following a life changing accident.

I blog to record family milestones and time together.  I blog about what makes me happy to pause and savour the experience and to celebrate the Simple Things in life that create happiness for me.


I love to be creative; crochet, card making, baking, sugar craft and home loving.  I share my makes here and have vowed to be spend more time being creative in 2015!


I take lots of photos of random things which I find beautiful and love that I can share them here and it not be considered weird!!  I've enjoyed meeting like minded people during my time in Blogland and hope to develop this further in the year ahead.

As you probably already realise, I am delighted to be joining in with the Grow Your Blog party 2015.


It would be lovely if you followed along with me in 2015. I hope that it will be a great year for us all!

  9. Hi Janine,
    It's a privilege to meet you and I am so blessed that you would follow along. I'm sorry about your accident and all that followed. You are so brave and strong. You have a beautiful family and it looks like you spend a lot of time doing special things together. Your blog is very lovely and your baked goods look scrumptious! Your home is very lovely and the quilt that you're putting together is very cheery and pretty. It's so nice to make a new friend who has a kindred spirit towards life. Thank you for visiting and I look forward to more visits to Simple Things. :)

    Blessings to you,
    Tamara
