I'm Kara, a 40-something woman who enjoys making and doing; practical one might say!
We don't have a TV and so have lots of time in the evenings to have a go at all those things that I've always wanted to have a go at. I created this blog to share my success's and failures with like minded people who also like to experiment and give it a go rather than buy brand new or get someone to do it for you every time!
We are fairly "Planet Ark-y" as a friend of our recently complained - and are constantly looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment, lower our bills and live a simpler life with less consumerism and ultimately - enjoy life!
The blog name comes partly from people often telling me, "Oh, you're so practical" and partly from our family name which has "frog" in it - my husband and my father-in-law both get called Froggy all the time - being a woman I guess that should make me a Frogg-ette, Frogg-ella or Frogg-ina!
I live on a large suburban block in Brisbane (but still don't seem to be able to grow veges despite all that room) although we do have chickens, worms, a cat, bee's, lots and lots of trees and fantastic neighbours!!
If you want to have a look around our back yard - the link is here.
I currently work
Thanks for dropping by!
