About Me

Let me tell you a little bit about me and mine.

Not an especially flattering photo, but this is me with my knitting needles getting ready to take some photos of how to knit.

The photo was taken by my youngest child - not really a child anymore - he took it as an eighteen-year-old about seven years ago!

Weird isn't it that I hid this photo from the family because it makes me look a bit blah, but I am prepared to put it on one of my websites for the whole world to see!  But this is a photo of at least one of the real Deb Masons (that's me by the way - Deb Mason.) No there is not more than one, I just have a rather complex life.

On one hand, I am the mother of three adult children and the proud grandmother of a two beautiful grand-daughters. But by day, I am the Finance Manager for a large government organisation in Adelaide (Australia).

I love the old crafts. I knit, sew, do various forms of embroidery and I spin my own yarn (when I get time). I also have a pottery wheel and used to have a kiln in my backyard, and a mig welder for doing steel work in the shed (until I came across a couple of other people who could put them to better use).

But I am also a closet geek - I am addicted to my laptop!

Oh, and I used to ride a motorbike (sold it a couple of years ago to move interstate) and I still drive a ute. Not your typical grandmother I guess if there even is such a thing anymore!

This site is a central part of my plans for the future - I finally know what I want to do when I grow up!

Although I have at least another 15 years before I reach retirement age, I really want to be an at home Grandma with an online business and this website is just the beginning of my online empire.

My Girls

And here is my incentive - aren't they beautiful!

To achieve my goal the first step is to make this site a valuable resource for people like you, and you can help!

If you have any suggestions about how I can improve the site please drop me a line through my contact page. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
