About Me

Updated January 2022

I joined Stampin' Up! in July 2011 and attended my first Stampin' Up! Convention in 2012 in Canberra, Australia and the company announced their next incentive trip would be to the Head Office in Utah, USA. Since joining I have earned four Incentive Trips and was also selected for the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team in 2017. 

2013 - Salt Lake City, Utah USA (visiting Head Office!)
2014 - Western Caribbean Cruise on Allure of the Seas
2015 - Hawaii Grand Vacation
2016 - Mediterranean Cruise on Norwegian Epic

All of that seems like a life-time ago, however I am still extremely proud of those achievements. I have had the opportunity to travel the globe and have met the most incredible people and created some truly beautiful friendships. 

A bit more about me:
I am married to my best-friend, Daniel and we have two amazing children, Emily (19) and James (17).

For 13 years Daniel and I had a busy air conditioning business servicing Sydney and lived in the Hawkesbury area, north west of Sydney. In November 2015 we sold our business and our home and moved to the gorgeous seaside town of Kiama (located 2hrs south of Sydney), where we purchased an adorable yellow cottage - complete with a white picket fence. We have since sold this beautiful house and purchased acreage to give Daniel more lawn to mow!

The Farm:
I thought we were done with moving, however in 2019 we fell in love with a 50 acre property just out of town. The problem being it was only a paddock with no power or water - just lots of grass! We currently have plans to build our dream home and have all our worldly possessions in a large shed. The shed also includes a separate craftroom just for me. So after years of it all being boxed away, it's now out and ready to be used...although much of it is now retired! 

Stamping By The Sea Retreat:
When we moved from Sydney in February 2016, I decided to 'cool the jets' so to speak on my Stampin' Up! business and focus on my new home and family. But I really missed everyone so I now host one major event each year and put all my love and energy into it. I have to admit it really is an amazing three day event held during August at East Beach Big 4 Holiday Park, Kiama. Unfortunately due to the pandemic it has not been held for the past two years, but I have my fingers and toes crossed for this year. If you would like to now more about the retreat please click here

Thanks for stopping by my blog home and wishing you a lovely, crafty day.
