Hi, I’m Jane, busy mum to five beautiful children, homeschooler and a maker with a passion for natural fibres and traditional crafts.
In 1999 (when I was a carefree 20yr old!) I met my husband and best friend, Matt. A year later we got married. That’s when my life really started.
Since then, we’ve bought five fantastic little people into this world and they bring us joy and inspiration every day.
Because we homeschool, I spend most of my time with our kids. It’s non-stop all the time and my work gets fitted in around them.
I spent most of my adult life living in Cornwall, but we realised that we would never be able to afford to live the way that we wanted to there. So in September 2019, we took the leap, sold our house (and a great deal of our belongings) and relocated to the Orkney Islands.
It’s an amazing place, with huge open spaces and dramatic landscapes. It has given us a connection to the natural world around us that has been a breath of fresh air. One that was very much needed.
Our new life is a work in progress. We want to live simply, being as self-sufficient as possible, living and working together and inspiring our children to follow their dreams. We have so much to do to get things up and running the way that we want them. A house to renovate, polytunnels to build, workshops to build for our children, animals to get (and learn to care for). The list goes on and on…………but we want to enjoy the journey as much as the end result.
