About Me

My name is Jolene, and I’m a full-time mum of two. I live in Auckland, New Zealand with my husband and little ones.

I’m a bit creative, and I have an appreciation for design, homes, crafty things and interesting blogs. I also like to write sometimes, and I do a bit of graphic design on the side.

This blog began as the story of us making our very first house into a home. But it has evolved into my creative outlet for all things design and DIY. Some days it’s all about renovation, the next day it’s cute things for little ones, other days it’s mid century madness.

    Hi, I am on a blog discover night tonight and just found yours. Awesome. It’s neat to find so many people sharing passions and thoughts online.
    Am also Aucklander, who enjoys DIY, has kids, but my passion pre kids was travel so ironically have turned my hands to “travelling in your own backyard” which came about as ‘accommodation reviews’. The process of finding, sharing travel experiences, so we all win. So my site and blog is fossick.com. Well done for your media post.

        Hi Niki,
        I think you may be looking in the wrong place… While I love small houses, we don’t actually live in one and are not thinking of renting our place out. Hope you find what you are looking for!
