Hello from Bendigo Australia...

Hey guys and gals,

Thought I should pop in here and introduce myself and say hi. I'm Christine and by day I'm a Design Consultant for a major Australian Blind Company and a Digital Designer by night and weekends. I love blogging, designing digital goodies, scrapbooking in paper, digital and hybrid mediums, love mixed media art and love social media.


I have 4 adult children 2 girls and 2 boys ranging from 21 - 26. I also have my beautiful grand daughter Aria who is my eldest son Lance's and his partner Tiahana's little 4 month old bubba boo and is the apple of my eye.

My scrapbooking history is fairly extensive so here's a quick run down...

  • Started paper scrapping many years ago as a way of creating precious memories of my kids
  • Stared digital scrapbooking back in 2005/2006 and started designing in 2006
  • Taught paper scrapbooking classes within my local community, had my own paper scrapbooking store, had my own photography business and wrote up tutorials for online paper and digital stores
  • Have been on various Creative Teams, managed a couple and helped with other admin areas as well
  • Took a break from both scrapping and designing due to my 28 year marriage falling a part rather suddenly 4 years ago
  • Started designing again earlier this year and have absolutely loved getting back to what I love


Can't wait to get to know as many of you as possible and have heaps of fun here :)

Thanks everyone for your warm welcome. Life is busy at the moment as I've been away from home living in a motel and out of a suitcase with work for the past 6 weeks. I get to go home tomorrow in full so looking forward to it.

Goodness you have a ton of creative juices to have done all that - well, it will be fun to see your LOs of little Aria (first granddaughter! she probably inspires you with all kinds of ideas of new things to make)  and I am glad you got back into designing because when you get to enjoy what you do you are a lot happier. So glad you got to jump in and just have fun!
