My name is Jo-Anna and I’m originally from Ontario, Canada.  In 2004 I felt like I needed a life change so I packed up and headed to Edinburgh, Scotland to run a Bed and Breakfast.  Little did I know that a short 2 months later I would meet my future husband, a kiwi who was also doing his OE working just down the street from my hotel.

11 years and 3 countries later, we are now settled in Wellington, New Zealand in his home town.  We have two gorgeous sons and a third child on the way.  I used to work in the corporate world but after having my children I decided to stay home and do something more soul satisfying 🙂  I am the owner and creative designer behind Jo-Anna’s Attic, Handmade Decor and Accessories for Children.

I write about my passion for creating beautiful children’s products like heirloom baby blankets, children’s room decor and accessories and generally and how Jo-Anna’s Attic came to be.  I’ll share some recipes and life experiences and hopefully I’ll encourage you to see the joys of a simple life raising children and creating a beautiful home.  You can read a little bit more about the products that got me started in this blog post.

Thank you for visiting and please feel free to leave me a comment!
