This little space has grown so much since its humble beginning in March 2011.
This was originally a means to an end. The end being to make My Bestie Amelia laugh, and write about my little family as they grew.
To have a record of this seemingly surreal life.
And then, somewhere between 6-12 months later, DRaT became something more. For me. For you.
A place of sanctuary for the Opposite of Super Mums amongst us.
A place to document how imperfect I was. My children are. My marriage is.
But how much this life means to me.
And then, somewhere around 12-18 months along the way, it became less important to write about this life and more important to live it.
And that’s what I’ve been doing.
I changed. The space changed. My family changed.
We’ve gone from a disheveled house full of babies and toddlers with zombie parents to a disheveled house full of preschoolers, a hand made work at home mum, a hard working and involved dad – parents who value each other as much as their children.
I’ve gone from being an advocate for self-awareness and mental health self-monitoring, to someone who is now working towards mental health recovery.
And now, it’s time for DRaT to change. To evolve. To become something more than a mummy blog.
This space will, as of tonight, become an online store for my crochet creations.
This blog will remain here. Mrs P and I aren’t going anywhere – but when you hit www.daisyrooandtwo.com you’ll hit the shop first, and head to the blog – if that’s your fancy – second.
I’ll no longer be taking doll orders through Facebook and email – in fact, I’m so busy I’ll be closing custom orders until further notice.
I’ve currently got enough custom work to keep me hooking through until September.
I’ll let everyone know here on the blog, on FB, Twitter and Instagram when custom ordering will reopen – and let you know all the how’s and what’s that you’ll need to know.
I’ll be stocking the store with all manner of crochet creation, and there will be doll stockings (oh the ideas I have burning to be brought to life) – and you’ll have plenty of notice of these.
I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your support over the past two years, for your orders, and for every person who told me that I could turn this into a real life day job:
I love you. And I hate you. But mostly, I’ll be forever grateful for your belief in me.
Over and out.
