My name is Alice Merlics-Walsh and Merlixa is a quasi umbrella name for all my attempts at starting a creative business over the last decade. Whenever I had a new idea, I named it Merlixa. My various interests (fashion writing, styling, millinery) came and went but Merlixa has always been a keeper. So while I have come to terms that a creative entrepreneur I am not (yet), I have also come to a realization that I creativity and constant learning is my preferred way of life.

On this blog, I indulge my passion for learning and creativity, making mistakes, and getting better at things. I blog about sustainable living, making our own clothes and accessories, food, homesteading, and finding simplicity.

I am a wife and mother of a little boy and a little girl. I live in West Wicklow, Ireland, which I think is the most beautiful place in the world.

Thank you for dropping by 🙂
