The Lil Pip blog is an opportunity for Jane to have a creative outlet for everything she makes and creates for herself and her family.

From Jane:

"I've always found it difficult to write about me. Not that I don't mind talking about myself but rather, I don't know what you would like to read! So here is the basics but please feel free to ask a question and I'll add it here!

My name is Jane and I live in the inner west of Melbourne. I can now claim I'm in my 'mid-30s' and I'm pretty happy about that (ask me how happy in a few years as I move from 'mid' to 'approaching 40s'?!?). I've been married for 9 years to my wonderful, generous Canadian husband and I have two beautiful children - Master O who is 8 and Miss A who is 6 (and features in a lot of Lil Pip's promotional photos). 

I've been sewing since high school when I had the most amazing home ec teacher, Mrs Timms. She was a grandmotherly figure, who took me under her wing and taught me so much. She was patient and kind but also pushed me to do so much more than I ever thought I could.

I bought my first sewing machine a couple of months after I was married but it wasn't until after I had my daughter that I pulled it out again (and quickly realised I needed to upgrade). After so many friends asked if they could buy my creations, Lil Pip was born in August 2010.

I work part time in marketing (comes in rather handy) so my business works around my 'real' job, my family and my life. I now concentrate mainly in selling at markets around my area and am proud to be part of a committee that organises the Maribyrnong Makers Market (and you will find me blogging there too!). 

So that's me - if you would like to know more, ask away!"
