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.
