Thank you for visiting Teacher by trade Mother by nature. My name is Charlene, and I am a 30-something Kiwi Mummy blogger, teacher by trade, and Mother of two. Welcome to my blog, it's so great to have you here.

If you love to organise, declutter and clean your home, we are going to be great friends. If you are looking for fun and creative (and inexpensive) activities and crafts, you have come to the right place. You will also find posts about KonMari, getting #inthepicture, motherhood, blogging, Kids (Toddler) play ideas, Crafts & DIY, Taking Stock, and a few recipes here and there. I also like to share tidbits of my Life, Home & Family.

Grab a cuppa and have a look around...


I love being a Mum and I am truly blessed to have these two beautiful children in my life - Miss B (11) and Master M (2). They inspire me every.single.day.


In May 2014, I created this Facebook page a couple of months after having my second baby. I wanted a place where I could share my interests, things I am passionate about and hopefully inspire others along the way. Fast forward a few months to September 2014, I took the plunge and created an actual blog. It quickly became an opportunity for me to connect with more people, write more, share more and create more! Teacher by trade Mother by nature represents who I am, and what I do.
