My name is Karen, I live on the (sometimes) sunny NSW Central Coast, have a partner who has three great kids, have 4 1/2 dogs (share one with the partner), and am discovering the world of paper crafts and scrapbooking!
Started scrapbooking approx 5 yr ago, and have realised it's an ever evolving craft ... so many new things, techniques etc coming out all the time - it's hard to keep up! For example, recently discovered Copic markers - oh what fun we are having now! As a consequence, my house is always one of organised chaos lol.
I fund my hobbies (or habits, I haven't decided which yet) working as a pet groomer here on the coast, which also caters for my love of animals. I have been showing dogs since I was 8 yr old, and will never be with a canine companion. Next year, hopefully one of the girls will be having puppies - a whole new subject to scrap!

Bookmarks for Christmas
Thanks to Dawn, my Copics teacher, I received the notes for a class which had to be cancelled, on colouring pleats and feathering. I haven't had to use the feathering technique here, but I hope I got the pleats right! The blue based bookmark is my first attempt, which I am using myself. The pink and purple I am adding as stocking stuffers for friends - but I coated the stamped image with dimensionalmagic, and I'm not completely taken with the result, so may have to redo them.
