Well I have crafted for as long as I can remember. There is not much in the arts & crafts that I haven't had a go at! What makes me happiest by far though is creating with paper & inks and preserving family memories, making handmade cards (I haven't bought a mass produced card for well over a decade) and gifts.
I joined Stampin' Up in May 2016 and have never worked with a suite of products that work together so well before in my life, they are a dream. I am having the most amazing time creating with them and I haven't barely put a dent in my wish list! "Why? oh why? did it take me so long to join Stampin' Up?", can be heard coming from the cupboard that is my craft studio. Let me tell you about that, it's nothing as dramatic as a Harry Potter cupboard under the stairs but a little walk in robe, or rather walk through robe from the main bedroom to our ensuite that we converted to a little craft nook. It's tiny but it's mine and it's a dedicated space, so I consider myself lucky!
I have already made some fabulous new friends and am already looking forward to a couple of Stampin' Up events coming up in the near future. I have never blogged in my life (or kept a diary for that matter) so this should be interesting and quite a learning curve. I'm already pretty impressed with myself having gotten this blog to this point (insert pat on back here!).
I live on the Sunshine Coast, in sunny Queensland, Australia with my very patient hubby of 20 years and two kidlets, daughter 16 & son 14. I work part time at a very busy veterinary surgery. We have two dogs a Beagamute "Tilda" 4 & a tiny JRT "Jenny" 12 and a crazy budgie "Bud". Hubby & kids are all volunteer Surf Lifesavers, we love camping & bushwalking.
Thank you for stopping by my blog, I hope you'll follow along xx
