Welcome to my blog, dedicated to sharing some of the cards I have made when I manage to get some ‘me time’ to relax.

To start with, a bit about me. I am from Perth, Western Australia and I have lived here my whole life. My day job combines being mum to two little boys, and being a Control Systems Engineer at a major mining company here in Perth.

I started making cards in June 2017 as a way of extending the creative side of my brain since my work is more on the technical side. I wanted to try and learn something new and paper craft seemed like it would be productive, creative, relaxing and something I could do in the evenings once the kids were asleep. It has turned into something that I really enjoy doing, and I also enjoy crafting with the kids – a particular win win when it’s a rainy day here in Perth!

In July 2017 I signed up as an Independent Stampin’ Up Demonstrator. Initially I had no intention of ever selling anything, I just wanted to buy a stack of product and being able to do that at a discounted rate seemed smart. Fast forward six months and the hobby has turned into quite the obsession!

I find it relaxing to zone out, browse Pinterest and YouTube and try a new technique. In order to challenge myself and try some new things I participate in numerous design challenges so you will see numerous blog posts dedicated to these. I have even managed to pick up a few wins along the way.

So grab a cuppa, put your feet up and browse away. Any questions, queries, class requests or product orders you want to make, contact me via here or on any of my social media platforms.
