About Me


Welcome to my blog,

I assume since you've found this page you want to learn a bit more about me.

My name is Caitlin and I've been blogging here since April 2011. I started this blog as a way to show others my crafts and to enjoy sharing and learning. More and more my focus is on sharing what I do and helping others to learn. I love to share my knowledge and pass all the awesome crafts to others. I'm a bit of a nerd and a fitness junky and work as an accountant.

What crafts do I do?

As this blog started as a way to show off my cross stitch, that is my main craft BUT over the course of time I change what I do depending on my moods. Cross Stitch is always a big focus here but you will find crochet, knitting, quilting, sewing, drawing and random paper craft as well. I basically like to do anything that catches my fancy and tomorrow the crafts I do may change entirely.

I have taken to designing cross stitch patterns and you can find the link to my etsy shop. I will draw the pictures up and then edit them digitally before turning them into cross stitch patterns. I have been combining my love of drawing, fitness and cross stitching all in one.  

Where else can you find me?

         (for my lifestyle and fitness posts)
Facebook group: (for some advice and free patterns)

Also you can find my cross stitch patterns over on etsy.

What else do I do?

I am a trained Primary school teacher but I have found that I didn't enjoy being in charge of a class. Therefore a career change was in order and I started working as an accountant/receptionist and studying for my Masters of Business (Professional Accounting) which I have FINALLY FINISHED!. I don't have as much time as I thought I did.... I love it though and I have a lot of work and I do enjoy working with clients and teaching them how to work with the software they have chosen.

I also love to spend my spare time playing trumpet in the Moreton Bay Symphony Orchestra. I have always done some sort of music as I started learning piano when I was 4. I enjoy being able to share and learn all about music. It's wonderful to spend time with an amazing group of people share the same passion as me.

A year and a half ago I started my fitness journey. I was tired of spending all day at a desk and knew that something had to change! I still spend all day mainly at a desk because I'm an accountant but I try to get to the gym at least twice a week and I play softball on the weekends. I have also fallen in love with obstacle courses but can't afford to do them as often as I would like to. I'm currently doing a lot of strength training and working towards getting my power lifts really good which is Squat, Bench and Deadlift. You can see my journey with those on my instagram account naughtslife_fitness. Though I will update here when I remember to.
