About Me

Thanks for taking the time to find out more about me -
I was born in New Zealand and moved to Australia in 1983.
My wonderful husband Laurie and I have 3 kids Jarred (27) Tamika (24) and Riley (21)
We love to travel and have been fortunate enough to see a lot of Australia and a few places overseas.
During the day I am a Medical Receptionist and when I am not teaching classes or in my craft room I love the beach and interior design.
I became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in 2012. Three weeks before I joined I had never even heard of Stampin' Up! My Mum called round one day and said she was going to a 'card making workshop'  and did I want to go? I was not keen and told her I thought I would give it a miss. She stayed for a cuppa and by the time she left she was picking me up at 7.30pm
(still not sure how that happened)
I went to the workshop and loved it! made a card, placed an order and booked a workshop.
I was hooked! I joined 3 weeks later
Thanks Mum 😄

  1. What a great story of how you became a demonstrator! (I'm a hobby demo in the USA and came across your blog when I saw your dragonfly card on Pinterest.)

  2. Hi Marianne,I am so very grateful to my Mum for introducing me to Stampin Up. I can not imagine my life without it. It really is the best isn't it.
    Thanks for your lovely comments. Have a great day.
