By chance I stumbled across this wonderful challenge on Instagram the other day and I thought I would give it a shot. I don’t know if I can make it blogging every day of the month, but I’m willing to give it a shot. I may post here, or on my teacher blog (Miss Galvin Learns), depending on the challenge prompts (click the image above for a link to Brave Love Blog for challenge details).
The first challenge prompt: introduce yourself.
I look back through the posts on this blog and I realised that I haven’t really done an introductory post to me – which is silly because I do want you guys to get to know me! (And I want to get to know you!)
So, where to start?
Hi! My name is Stef and I’m a twenty-something year old teacher in Melbourne, Australia.
Aside from being a teacher (and somewhat obsessive learner!) I am also a big fan of crafts. I love to make things with paper – so it’s no surprise that last year I feel in love with my planner, planner decorating and picked up scrapbooking to add to my crafting repertoire this year, too. I’m also having fun learning to hand letter, too.
I’m a firm believer in imperfect-perfect crafts – I don’t take myself too seriously, so I don’t stress out when mistakes/accidents happen. Life is too short to worry about those! (I just tell myself I can live with it!) And while I have been known to do a big craft haul here or there, I like to make do with what I have, too. Waste not, my friends!
Every day of the week I teach a beautiful class of Foundation (5-6 year old) students in their first year of primary school. It’s always crazy, chaotic and fun. A perfect combo. I tend to be busy-busy-busy during the week and then I use my weekends to craft, film Youtube clips, photograph stuff for Instagram and my blogs and generally catch up on TV/films/etc. I love my job!
If you’re looking to find me online, you can find me in many places:
I’d love to connect with – and get to know – more of you, so drop me a line in the comments. I’m happy to answer questions you may have or just say hi!
Happy September 1st, friends!
