I made this video 2 days before full lockdown to Level 4.
It's now almost 6 weeks later.
A lot has happened in the past 6 weeks.
This is what I have experienced:
I have been able to help several families with their grocery shopping. I've been baking and cooking lots of new meals as several months ago I gave up eating meat, wheat, dairy and junk food. My new lifestyle is going really well and my health problems have subsided. (Winning)
Aided with "Female" tea created by Heke Homemade Herbals
Huge amount of creative energy, so I've created lots of new "Functional Art" pieces.
I got the glory box lid upholstered beautifully.

I created 2 very stunning up cycled kitchen chairs using my dear friend Bee Sparkles fabric. Her business is called My Heart Sings NZ she makes these
Map Cushions I sell a small selection of these beautiful map cushions.
End results are absolutely stunning pieces of functional art.

Since joining the NZMP page a few weeks ago on April 21st 2020

BUY NZ MADE. I've gone from 20 visits a day to 1700 on the first day.
An extra 1000 followers on my Facebook Page Vickies Funky Cushions
I've been in the news on TVNZ
I've created a few tutorials on YouTube 1st Tutorial & 2nd Tutorial

So this is my first blog.
Kiwiana inspired "New Zealand Made Cushion Covers" and "Shoulder Bags" is what I'm all about. I LOVE creating functional art by up cycling retro furniture into one of designs.
