About Me

I love Steampunk, calligraphy and vintage but also bright and shocking colours, gelli printing, ATC's, mini journals, card making, mosaics - just generally crafting in any medium makes me happy. I also have a bit of a dark side, so spooky things, skulls etc are great.

I'm an avid motorcyclist and have ridden in the Himalayas and the Andes, and all around New Zealand. My partner and I have a launch, which we virtually live on over the Summer, snorkeling, fishing and visiting the various islands around the Auckland region. I have 3 grown up children and a grandson who is the apple of my eye.

I work in IT so doing creative things and finding adventure really helps me escape from this often tiresome industry.

Looking forward to sending and receiving some cool creative items.

Favorite Movies

Horror, suspense, action.

Comment: HI! It's always fun to get a swap from someone far away-you near the water and me in the middle of the prairie! I like your mini-pocket letter-especially the colors and I do like mermaid images.too. Looks like you have fun creating backgrounds,too! I'm slowly learning to be better at that. I am taking a card making class on Tues Nights at my local scrap booking store and learning many new techniques. Nice to "meet" you! Thanks for sharing! Thanks also for the extra mermaid images-washi tape and other pretty things you sent along!
Response: Glad you liked it - look forward to seeing you on another swap :)
