Welcome to A Pocketful of Me.

Hello, my name is Melanie.
I'm a writer. A crafter. A dreamer.
I live with my husband and our two amazing kids in an eighty year old 'tin and timber' home in Brisbane, Australia. We have two dogs, two cats and a few goldfish.
We are laid back. Relaxed. Our pets are allowed inside. Yes, even on the furniture.

We believe that simple things are what make life worth living.
Sunshine. Fresh air. Good food. Family and friends.

Life doesn't need to be fancy-shmancy.

This philosophy is at the heart of my blog. I want to share with you a pocketful of ideas you can do to make every day special. You might find simple and thrifty projects for around the home; fuss-free entertaining ideas; thoughtful homemade gifts or tips for simple everyday living.

I also blog to remind myself to live simply and in the moment. 
To pare back down to the basics and embrace what I have. To do more for myself and for others.

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about me. I hope we become friends, and that you'll visit here often.
