Tell us about your family

We are wife & hubby, 2 boys aged 6 & 8, a dog called Max, and 2 fish named Cookie and Billie.

How long have you been designing?

Since about 2006. I was a totally-addicted paper scrapper before that.

What program(s) do you use?

Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom).

What part of designing comes easiest to you (themes, colors, papers, elements?)?

Hmmm, colours and/or themes I think.

What part of designing is most challenging to you?

What inspires you?  

Life, radio, music, my boys, tv...

If you’re running low on design mojo, where do you go to kickstart your creativity?  

Thankfully, I’ve never really had that issue. But if I did, I would go sit in the garden and enjoy nature for a while... some inspiration is sure to come along sooner or later!

What has been the greatest compliment you have received about your designs?

Being accepted as a Designer at Sweet Shoppe Designs. It’s the greatest honour & the most amazing place to work!

What project are you working on now (or next)?

Next: probably a kit about kids and their little accidents... my Henry has had some doozies lately & has the scraped knees to prove it!

How much time do you allocate to designing in a typical week?

School hours – Monday to Friday 9am – 2:30pm. Of course I still have to fit in chores & errands during that time, but mostly that’s my routine. I try to save afternoons and weekends for family time, gardening & other adventures.

What is the latest you’ve ever stayed up to finish a design or scrap?

I’m a total sook... I hate staying up late! Probably about 2am once when I was cutting it down to the wire with a new release.

What’s your favorite snack to have handy while you design?

I don’t really snack while I design. I always have a big bottle of water to drink though. I take a half hour lunch break every day and make sure I leave my office to eat! Stretches my legs & refreshes my brain. What book are you reading right now? Desert God, Wilbur Smith. What magazines do you subscribe to (scrap & non-scrap related)? Scrapbooking Memories (Australian Scrap mag) and Your Vege Patch (gardening mag). Slippers or barefoot? Barefoot mostly, slippers in winter. What is your guilty pleasure? Milo on creamy buttermilk icecream... yuuuummmm Name five of your favorite CDs? Pink, Neil Diamond, Andrea Bocelli, Live & Kenny Rogers (yes, I’m all over the place!). Where is the farthest you have been from home? I have travelled to Canada (I was born there), Malaysia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea (I worked there), Singapore. If you could have one super power, what would it be? To stop time. If you were given one wish that was sure to come true, what would you wish for? To live happily ever after. If you could change one thing about this world, what would it be? War. It upsets me and disturbs me – I hate seeing people and countries fight. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you make your home? Right where I am now! I love it! Which would you pick…more money or more time? Of course the answer should be time, but I wouldn’t mind a bit more money too!! What personality traits do you hope to pass on to your children? Patience, tolerance and fairness. What personality traits do you hope you do not pass on to your children? My tendance to bury my head in the sand when something gets too hard. What would your best friend say about you? That I’m loyal and caring, and just a little bit crazy sometimes!
