Launched in 2014 as a place to share children’s craft ideas, parenting wins/fails and connect with like minded people, this blog has become a place for positivity, creativity and support.

What Are We About?

Maybe you’re looking for crafts, activities and bakes to do with your children. Perhaps some recommendations on great days out across the UK? Or maybe you’re looking for some budget friendly family life advice.

If you love getting creative, adventuring and living your best life with your family, you’ll feel right at home here.

With 3 years of blogging experience under my belt, I’ve worked with some great brands, met some wonderful people and gained confidence both online and ‘in real life’. Mental health plays a huge part in my life and blogging has given me the opportunity to creatively express myself as well as sharing my story with supportive, caring people.

How did this all come about?

Lukeosaurus And Me was born when I found myself in a very lonely place as a new mum. I’d just come out of a 5 year long relationship and had a 6 month old baby. I lost all of my friends as a result of the break up and had no one left to talk to. I was in the depths of PND and desperately needed a place to share my experiences of motherhood. I have never felt so alone.

The creation of Lukeosaurus And Me was absolutely life changing.

Hi!

I’m Rachael, but most people call me Ray.

This is me and my son, Luke.

I’m 25 and I live in Hampshire, UK. I’m the mother of 4 year old Luke. I like to call him my little Lukeosaurus. I’m sure you’d guessed that already though.

Blogging became a huge part of my life when I found myself looking after a 6 month old baby. I wanted to share all the Christmas crafts we were making together and talk about my early experiences of motherhood. After all, everything was new to me and I had no one to talk to about it all!

Blogging was new to me too, but it soon became an obsession. I loved writing about our days, chatting about my opinions, sharing my shopping bargains and even tentatively discussing mental health and loneliness.

Now I enjoy hearing the wonderful comments from people just like me. People who have been in my shoes. People who love getting crafty with their kids. People who want to save money but still live life to the fullest.

Enough about me, what about you?

I want to help you to live your best life! If you think we’d get on, come by and say hi on Twitter. Or pop along to the Lukeosaurus And Me Facebook page and join in with the fun.
