Hi, I'm Babs - otherwise known as Patchwork Cactus; I'm a blogger, (obviously) a writer, a shutterbug and I love to make stuff.
My almost-hubby, myself and our two kids are attempting to live the slow life in a beach side suburb on the East Coast of Australia - so far we haven't managed to achieve that. I would love have a simplistic, organised and ordered home but....This is the musings of a rickety house full of creativity, spontaneity, piles of laundry and more often than not, chickens running around inside. It turns out I'm much better at spilling glitter on the carpet than keeping it clean and I'm starting to realise that I wouldn't have it any other way.
Here at Patchwork Cactus I like to talk about all my loves, DIY, style, parenting, fashion, food and photography. We are also starting to renovate our Patchwork House and I'm going to share lots of that process in the coming months. Unlike some other crafty blogs, you don't need any special talents to follow my tutorials, I like modern, funky projects and anyone can make the stuff I make.
When I'm not here?
Want to work with me?
Let's take a picture with a two year old and baby, should be fun. p.s these kids are actually 5 and almost three now.
