Hello! My Name is Janelle, I'm 22 years old and live in Launceston, Tasmania. I'm a lover of sewing and pretty vintage things and spend most of my time working on my small vintage-inspired clothing label, A Mint Daydream. When I'm not busy making dresses, I'm studying for a bachelor of Interior Design, crocheting cute granny square blankets, or excitedly planning my wedding for next November! I started this blog as a bit of a creative outlet for myself and to be able to share bits and pieces of my life, as well as having somewhere to share some of my creative projects and all things 'A Mint Daydream'.

Want to get to know me more? Here are 25 facts about me:
