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!

I'm so excited!
A little over a week ago, I applied to the website, "Aussie Cards For Sale" to become a designer, and sell my handmade cards through them ... and I've been accepted! How absolutely fabulous! I love making cards, but all I have been doing is making them, entering them in online challenges, and stashing them away ... now I have somewhere for them to be listed, appreciated, and given with love! How cool! (And special thanks to Alicia, who runs Aussie Cards For Sale, and Dawn, that wonderful woman who taught me all about Copic markers, and introduced me to the joy of stamping and cardmaking to begin with!)
