Janine Emerson

Byron Bay


My name is Janine and I am a Leo with an Aries rising. Which means I am super creative and love all things flamboyant although things need to keep changing in order for me to remain interested. My Moon in Virgo does help to ground me a little and makes me borderline OCD with the cleaning and tidying. Apart from my interest in astrology I love the wonderful world of herbal medicine and I have a BHSc in Western Herbal Medicine. So do not turn up with an illness around me as I will endeavour to fix you with some rather gross-tasting but effective herbs.

i also love all things craft. Crochet, sewing, painting, glueing, stitching, drawing, you get my drift. And then there is anything vintage, bohemium, gypsy, morroccan, ah, sensory overload, wonderful eye candy!
i have my own cake design and decorating business Feather & Lace Creative Cakes based in the Byron Bay region. This allows my love of baked goods and craft collide into a delicious edible artwork.

i trawl the op-shops for doilies and embroidered cloth so I can then up-cycle them into cute vintage-inspried accessories and clothes for women and girls. i am working on a website for this project but for now i am uploading photos onto Flickr. Search Feather and Lace Creative.

i am the mother of one quirky, mischievous, funny, small girl-person. it is a demanding full time job but i do get to play in parks, blow bubbles, paint crazy artworks, sing silly songs and experience unconditional love.
