There is a competition going around at the moment: Best Australian Blogs 2014 run by the Australian Writers’ Centre.  I entered my blog in the competition and, also, in The People’s Choice AwardIf you love what you read and see on my blog, I would love it if you take a few minutes of your time to vote for The Crafty Expat.

It’s been now almost two years that I took the plunge and started this blog and it’s been an interesting, challenging and exciting journey.  So, to encourage you to vote, I took it to YouTube to ask you in three languages to vote for The Crafty Expat!

First, in English.

Now, in French.

And, finally, here I am in Arabic!

I also just want to say there are many awesome blogs in this competition and some of my favorite ones too and I wish best of luck to everyone who entered.

The competition twitter hashtag is #bestblogs14 and you have until 5pm on Monday 5 May 2014 to vote.

Thanks so much for taking the time and for your support.  Feel free to share this post and get your friends to vote too!

Happy Easter!  Enjoy your long week-end and have the best time with your loved ones!


It’s going to be quiet this week over here as I’m off camping for the first time of my life in a place called Wonnangatta Station in the Alpine National Park with no internet and no phone!  That’s going to be quite an interesting experience.  I can’t wait to reconnect with the nature and most of all, see the night sky full of stars.

What are you up to for this long week-end? 


Au revoir!

Hello lovely! I just voted for you in the people’s choice award! What a great idea to create the Youtube videos in the different languages you speak. I can’t get the sound to work on my computer at the moment though, but as soon as I do, I’ll be back to listen to them! xxx

I now have the sound working on my computer so I popped back to watch these videos. What a lovely voice you have! I feel like I know you even better now after watching your vlogs. And it’s so great to hear you speaking French and Arabic too.
