I am actually a dairy farmer in real life but have this little business as a ever growing sideline! I live near Te Puke which is near Tauranga and have spent alot of time in Whakatane area. I am also a part time phlebotomist.
I love to teach people and introducing new people to this craft and have been scrapbooking for 15 years now. Card making came along much later and Im addicted to both.
I am a nationally recognised name in the New Zealand Scrapbooking scene and have been published in magazines both here and in the US.
I have a long suffering Hubby of 29 years and our two children 22 and 19 are my main subjects for scrapbooking. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 540 cows. I’m a new convert to card making and have learnt a lot of it online ..in fact the first stamping techniques I learnt was from that little Stampin’techniques booklet SU used to send with every order! So it just goes to show that anyone and everyone can do this as a craft and as a business.
I joined Stampin’ Up! to continue my teaching and as the demise of the adult education classes in New Zealand hit, I thought it was doubly important to get out there and teach. I love the coordination of products that Stampin’ Up! brings to my crafting whether it be in cards, altered art or scrapbooking.
My aim is to provide a fun and stress free class.

Hi there, just found your blog through a link from Caroleanne’s site. How great to see someone from the southern hemisphere. I have been searching blogs the last couple of weeks and they are all American or English. Good on you! Ill be back!
Hi, I love your christmas crackers and would like to have a go myself. I was wondering if a template was available?
I love your site I pinned on Pinterest. Do you have a tutorial for the dress card? I can’t figure out how to fold it right! Also I have a 25 scallop circle punch can that be used??? Thank you hope to hear from you!!!
Dear Delys, I want to buy the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits die and wondered if you know of any company in Australia or New Zealand that sells these. If I get them direct from America they will cost me nearly one hundred dollars, including postage, and this is just too much…
Contact a local Stampin Up Demonstrator in Australia..You can find one using the demonstrator Locator here http://www3.stampinup.com/home/en-au/demonstrator-finder
Thank you so much for replying and I have contacted a couple of local people from the location you gave me, and am waiting on a reply as we speak.
