Firstly we would like to introduce ourselves. The creator of most of the artwork you will see here is from Virginia. The patterns and designs are all 100% original and have been developed over a number of years using different techniques that have been picked up from various locations and cultures throughout the world. This has become a passion which started as a hobby and since developed into a dream come true to share with the world.
Virginia originally comes from a city in France called Orleans, where she started creating macrame patterns from an early age (a talent she has also passed onto both of our niece`s) and hasn`t looked back. The results speak for themselves, wonderful crafts that showcase cultural backgrounds and a talented lady who keeps the skills alive.
The website and gardening sections have been created by me, Tristen. I felt that with Virginia`s art and a bit of healthy living ideas, we could create something special for everyone while having fun at the same time.
Gardening has only in the last couple of years been of interest to us and having successfully grown our first herbs and vegetables, it has been quite addictive, so we have decided to share some of this information with you. Its nothing too detailed but it can help getting started. Having grown up in sunny Queensland, Australia, the satisfaction I get from working outside really does shine through.
Many thanks again for taking a look at ww.smallgreendot.com and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.
