About Me

Tonya is the voice behind The Crafty Mummy. She dabbles in lots of different crafts – patchwork, quilting, cross-stitch, scrapbooking, knitting, crochet and sewing. This is the record of projects she has done, and the projects she dreams of getting to!

She is a stay-at-home mum to 2 gorgeous kids and is married to her best friend. They live in regional Queensland, Australia. Once upon a time she was a high school teacher in Brisbane and she has been known to teach a little piano too. But right now her number 1 job is to raise her kids and look after her home and family. She wouldn’t change that for the world!

Little Miss is her 11 year old daughter and Mr Happy is her 9 year old son. Yes, they have real names, but no, you don’t need to know them. Her husband rarely appears on the blog but is sometimes referred to as CraftyDaddy.

She would love to spend her days sewing, her afternoons quilting and her evening with her crochet on the couch, but  in reality she spends much of her time counting money in the school Tuckshop, hanging washing and vacuuming the crumbs that continue to magically appear under the kitchen table. Sounds like it could be a drag but really there is plenty of time to dream up new crafty projects!
