A Perth mother who takes over 100 hours of labour to complete her 100th anniversary decorations will be making them for free to celebrate her milestone.
Lisa Sorensen has already started a business called Lisa’s Masks that has been producing hand painted birthday and anniversary decorations since 2012.
She says the business will be able to offer a wider range of products, like holiday decorating and gifts.
“It’s a lot of work, but I think it’s important that there’s a range of things available for all ages,” she said.
“I just feel like people should be able come together, and we can create something special.”
Ms Sorenen’s creations are now part of a nationwide celebration of Australia’s centenary, which runs from April 30.
She said she is looking forward to seeing the changes made to her house and how people react to her creations.
“For example, I’ve got the new decor and I’m going to have the new decorations for Christmas,” she told News.au.
“We have people come up to my house and say ‘you’re such a nice lady’ and ‘I’ve got to take your decorations’.” For more stories like this, sign up for our newsletter.
Ms Sorrenson says she has a “love of design” and her love of history and heritage informs her decorating work.
“My passion is to bring the history of Australia to life,” she explained.
“And I think that’s something that I do very well.”
