I can’t imagine what my life would be like if I had not discovered stamping and card making in 2007 when a friend introduced me to it. I have always been creative but never considered myself “crafty” and my love of colour led me to become a make up artist. Even though I can create “master pieces” through make up I always envied those that had a natural talent of being able to paint and draw. So once that first stamp was in hand and inked up there was no stopping me! The instant gratification of a stamped image combined with pretty patterned paper opened up a whole new world. I am lucky enough to be blessed with a Chef for a husband and 3 wonderful and very active children, who lovingly dub me the “mamarazzi” because of my obsession with photography and my constant need to try and take a picture of every moment; which of course will be scrapped! This rewarding hobby has also opened up the doors to many wonderful opportunities and friendships and for that I am truly thankful for. I am so honoured and excited to be part of the amazing 2013 Studio Calico Creative Team.
