New Kid On The Block

Yes thats right! Your eyes have not deceived you and the title is correct, there's a new kid on the block and it's New Zealand! Hand-made is coming to the land of the long white cloud in July, which means we also have a new team member! When discussing who we wanted to approach to be the 'face' of NZ there was only one lady that came to mind, 'the lady that blogs'.

Welcome Angela!!!

A thirty something mother of two and wife to one, Angela first discovered a passion for quality handmade
five years ago. It began with a search for clothing to fit her tall, young daughter.  The discovery of quality workmanship and unique design was a match made in heaven, compelling Angela to move away from mass produced items and searching for handmade alternatives became the norm.

From purchaser to promoter

 It was a natural progression for Angela to use her blogging platform as a voice for creatives and celebrating Australian and New Zealand handmade is something she is now well known and respected for.  This is a badge that 'the lady that blogs' wears proudly in the form of her eclectic collection of handmade brooches and Angela is widely recognised with a mention as one of Kidspot's top 50 Australian Bloggers, 2012.

Since returning to her homeland of New Zealand in December, Angela can still be found talking all things handmade, but now it's no longer from her personal blog.
Instead, she is fighting the ongoing battle of the lady stache, upholding her war on Crocs and promoting handmade on both sides of the ditch via Give & Take Handmade. 'G & T', as it is affectionately known, is a gift swap initiative with big ambitions, wrapped up in washi tape and a whole lot of fun!

Being given the opportunity to join the Hand-Made team has Angela excited!

"To be a part of making quality handmade 'world famous in New Zealand', and to have NZ handmade recognised on the world stage, is an honour indeed".
