Today, I am so excited to introduce you to Anissa from GrowMama. I discovered her blog about a year ago via Pinterest and her famous pillow case bag tutorial.
She's a writer, blogger, homeschooler and compulsive crafter. So grab a cup of coffee (or tea), get cozy in your favorite armchair and enjoy meeting Anissa and learning a bit about her travels and crafty endeavors.
|Kia Ora! My name is Anissa Ljanta. I blog over at GrowMama.blogspot.com and I live in a tiny house overlooking the wild west coast of New Zealand. Creating and making have always been part of my life. My nana was a seamstress and my mama made our clothes when we were kids. I have been using a sewing machine since I was about 5.|
I travelled and lived away from NZ for 16 years and when I didn’t have access to a sewing machine, I sewed by hand. It’s a thing for me!
|I think the project I am most proud of is the pillowcase bag design I came up with years ago. I use mine all the time, I see people using them out on the street and the post I wrote about them went seriously viral on Pinterest. It was very exciting but I am a huge fan of encouraging people to learn how to sew and make things, and the pillowcase bag is such a great simple project for learners and experienced folk alike.
I love the life I have crafted. I have wonderful work I do based from home, we homeschool and live in what has to be one of the most stunning places in the world. My crafting and work table has the best view of the whole house. I look out over our garden, the bush and out over the Pacific Ocean and a big chunk of sky. I feel blessed.
