About

Healing, Creating, and Loving

I’m so glad you’re here. Truly. I love good company.

My name is Krista, (aka Phryne, Poppit, George, FaFa, or Luna), and I am a Canadian born and bred lass who lived in America for 20 years before heading to Europe and finally ending up where I was meant to be: on a goat farm in rural Queensland, Australia with my Aussie hubby, Bear.

We live on 40 acres in rural Southern Queensland, and every day is a bit madcap as we juggle jobs and gardens and orchards and our bustling menagerie of 35 goats, 10 geese, 4 dogs, 3 turkeys, 1 lamb named Kebab, and innumerable chickens and ducks. We get up early and go to bed early and are always tired and covered in scratches and bruises and sometimes look at each other and think, “What are we doing??!!” But we wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s our crazy dream and even when things go wonky, and they always do, we still love it.

There’s something wonderful about waking up before the sun and watching it set the fields aglow with light, getting teary with joy as fat raindrops fall after a long drought, watching spindly trees and withered up seeds turn into productive orchards and thriving gardens that provide food for us every day.

When I’m not chasing goats, collecting eggs, mending fences, or hauling hay, I earn my paycheck as an author and freelance writer, artist, and photographer, and paralegal for a law firm. I write books, articles for magazines and newspapers and work from home or anywhere I have internet access. That flexibility makes this wild life of ours possible, and I’m thankful for it.

I love good food, great books, and traveling whenever possible, but I’m especially passionate about healing, whether it’s our bodies, our minds, or our spirits. I went through some pretty rough experiences for many years, things that left me chronically ill, struggling with depression, PTSD, and deep fear. Coming out the other side of all that darkness made me cherish everything that heals, whether it’s making a beeline for a counselor, heading outside to hike or garden, hiding away for a bit to journal, sleep, and be alone with our thoughts, or connecting with safe people who truly care about our wholeness.

I hope that if my shop inspires you, you will visit me at my blog - www.ramblingtart.com - and find an equally inspiring spot that is safe, a place of support and understanding, where we can inspire and encourage each other as we all wobble along in this crazy, beautiful life.
