It is wonderful to be able to share our country life through Instagram, this website and the Blog Journal, Pinterest, newspaper and magazine articles.
If you would like to discuss an opportunity or collaboration, the best way is to message me via the contact page or via my email, email@example.com
The two free ebooks Greener Alternatives and Food Gardening Ideas were made possible by the Fairy Wren Cottage instagram community contributing their ideas.
Greener Alternatives was made in response to the catastrophic bushfires occurring in 2019, it was a positive way of coming together, sharing our knowledge in the hope of everyone collectively making greener choices in their home and garden and having a positive impact on the environment.
Food Gardening Ideas was made in 2022 as a response to the increasing food prices, many readers feeling despair and many readers wanting to share their knowledge in the hope that it may help someone be able to feed themselves and their loved ones.
My daughter Liliana and I collated the contributions, edited the ebooks. Liliana did all the tech work and I did the layout and photos.
The power of a community working together is greater than the sum of its parts. Even though we don't know each other personally, we still want to help each other.
I began an Interview Series in October 2022, let me explain a little more about it.
I've created this series to highlight women who are starting out. They have crafted something out of nothing, following those whispers and are moving forward with bringing their dreams to life. I believe in the power of sharing our stories, supporting and lifting each other up.
There is enough for everyone to be successful, in what ever way feels right for them.
It's humbling to be trusted with sharing each woman's story, you can read them in the Interview section of my Blog Journal HERE
My fine art prints and postcards are available at the Fairy Wren Cottage Etsy Shop.
A selection of my images are now available at Shutterstock, a leading global provider of high-quality licensed images, videos, and music.
You may have seen an article about the Fairy Wren Cottage garden in the At Home Magazine
(dailytelegraph.com.au/athome/ ). The photos were taken by me and the article was in several Australian newspapers.
Combined, I've also written and photographed over 30 articles for
Grass Roots Magazine and Australasian Poultry Magazine.
And for the girl who has always loved books and libraries, it's a proud and somewhat surreal feeling to have my ebooks and the community contributed ebooks published on
Trove, the National Libraries of Australia website. www.trove.nla.gov.au
