The girl behind the scenes..

Pretty sure thats me on the right. Sir Digby Chicken Ceasar (left) is my editor and taste tester.

I am always curious about the people behind the blogs I read, so I figured you might be curious enough about me to want to know more. It’s almost as good as peeking into the cabinet under my bathroom sink, but not quite.

1. Where are you from?
I was born in Western Australia and lived all over the country until 2002 when I moved to the Washington DC area. I have been living here ever since.

2. What made you decide to start Strewth?
I originally started writing on Strewth to keep my family back home up to date on my life. Once I met Brian and we bought a house, it evolved into more of a DIY blog…but I still only believe that my family reads along 😉

3. What do you do?
I am the General Manager at a locally owned Pet Store in Virginia. I get to play with cute puppies on the daily and assist my clients in finding the perfect food, treats, toys and anything else their four-legged (and some 2-legged) friends need.

4. Where do you get your craftiness from?
100% from my mum 🙂 From the time I was really little I remember my mum being ridiculously crafty – in fact one of my favourite memories was receiving a shoe box full of clothes for my barbie doll, that she had sewn, for Christmas. My mum got me hooked on longstitch as a young girl, then cross stitch..and eventually she bought me my own sewing machine. I’m not a pro by any means (in fact, what’s the opposite of pro?) but I do enjoy any time I spend with my crafty side.
