Introducing Rachel

Rachel is an Auckland blogger who has succumbed to the chams of some other lovely Auckland bloggers and decided to fly down and join us. Just reading her answers out me in a good mood. Do pop over to her blog and say hi! heartandcrafty.blogspot.co.nz


My name is Rachel Osborne

Where do you live? In an old Air Force officers house in Hobsonville, Auckland

What are 5 words that describe your blog? Messy, creative, honest, political and... umm... it's basically my verbal diarrhea but written down!

Why did you decide to come to this get together? I met a lovely person named Simone, and she got all excited about me having a blog, and then I got all excited to meet another blogger.... and, well, here we are!

What do you most hope to take away from the weekend? New friendships, better skills

What is your biggest hurdle to coming? My youngest child is 5 months old and an absolute sweetheart, but right now, if I leave her with Daddy she howls! So I'm feeling a little anxious about leaving her for the weekend, and contemplating trying to sneak her into my carry-on...

Do you know any of the other bloggers who are coming? Simone, who got me into this mess, from Greatfun4kids, and Sam and Leonie and Cat...

Would you describe yourself as an introvert or an extrovert? I was an extrovert until I had kids, but now I just want to go off by myself and hide in my bedroom, so I guess that makes me an introvert now!

If you were to participate in a reality TV show or competition TV show – what would it be? And why? NZs got Talent, because I can sing and I love singing and I want to sing. Loudly.

Have you been to Christchurch before? (unless you live here of course!) Yes, once... when I was 10!


  1. Look forward to meeting another Auckland blogger...see you soon :)

  2. I love the hide in my room comment :o)

  3. Please sing for us!! Can't wait to meet you!!

  4. haha just saw these comments, I'm SO not going to sing for anyone. Unless the music is really loud.... :P Can't wait to meet you all!
