Welcome to Talking Trash & Wasting Time, a place for you to be creative, express yourself, find your next D.I.Y and maybe even try new projects you would not have thought of yourself.
I am proud to have created some tutorials since 2012 which surprisingly became semi viral and influenced a lot of people to recreate their own version via their blog or Youtube.
Below are a few of these posts, so if you have not seen some of them yet, then please check them out.

Who am I you may ask? well I will try to keep this short
My name is Brooke & I live in the suburbs in Sydney Australia.
I am a mother of a teen princess, literally she thinks shes a princess and a pre-teen who is the complete opposite, so you can imagine the fun times in my house. My husband and I are childhood sweethearts as everyone likes to remind me, um do I need to be reminded I have been with this man forever and getting old? haha Seriously I am a lucky lady but we won't let him know that, so shhhh :D
My background is in retail and design. I studied fashion many moons ago after I left school but never pursued it as I got stuck in the exciting life of retail management, got married, had children etc etc normal story
After my youngest daughter was born I decided to take some time off work and look after my family. Eventually this lead to me starting a successful alternative jewellery design business with my sister and basically working my butt off and not sleeping ever!
