I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t making something, out of something else. I love creating, and recycling and learning new things. My current passion is to learn more about Art Journalling and Mixed Media.
Both of my parents were extremely creative. My father in the fields of photography and woodwork and general handyman tasks. I always thought my dad could do anything. Of course it was more from necessity, but I didn’t concern myself with that at the time. My mother had skills as a knitter, sewer, dressmaker and also crochet. She was adept at turning all sorts of bits and pieces into all sorts of other, more useful at the time, bits and pieces. And so my environment was one of making use of whatever was to hand.
I enjoy paper crafts, sewing and quilting, bookmaking and journalling. I run home based classes teaching card making, and mini albums. I am a retired Stampin’ UP! Demonstrator, which was my joy for five years. I still craft with some of the friends I made during this period.
I live in the wonderful suburbs of Melbourne Australia, with my husband of 46 years and our two cats (the girls), Fluffystuff and Blackcat. We emigrated here from United Kingdom in 1982 and I wouldn’t change where I live for anywhere else in the World.
I am mum to two wonderful sons and Nanna to three grandsons.
