About

Well, hello there! I’m Michelle and welcome to my little digital space. I am just tickled pink you stopped by.

The last 12 months have been pretty dang exciting for me. After working and saving (not the exciting part, I promise!), my man friend and I took ourselves off to the US of A on our second big travel adventure.

We saw so many sights, met some wonderful people and ate some incredible food. We went to Disneyland, I met Ariel (dream come true), and also made it to the Big Apple (second dream come true).

I’ve decided that when I’m rich (because it might happen), I would like to be a full time holiday-er. I found I really am quite good at it. I would be perfectly content baking, eating, crocheting and napping; however until that day comes, I’ll just keep on plugging away with this whole real life thang.

So, in 2016 I decided that my new mantra is to be more tenacious. In everything. There are so many things to do and try and, well, I’d like to give them a red hot go!

I live in Melbourne, Australia with my cat Archie and my Hubby, the latter of whom I met in Scouts when we were the super cool age of 12. After 14 years together, we decided to upgrade our best-friend-ness and get hitched.

After being one serious lucky duck and being gifted with a KitchenAid at our recent wedding shindig, I was super excited about the culinary wonders that awaited me (and still am!).

So I decided to start this here blog to keep a record of my kitchen, crochet and life adventures. Here you’ll find all sorts of ramblings about my goings on (and probably a few photos of my cat). I’m so excited to start down this digital path and if I can put a smile on your dial while I’m at it, then I’ll be one happy clam.

I’m also a bit snap happy, so if you’d like to have a squiz you can find me
right here. Or, you can drop me a line at contact@michellemakesthings.com to say hello, ask a question or share an adventure!
