What a privilege to receive this award! It was given to me by the lovely Cathy Clark. Thank you so much Cathy.
Part of receiving the award is to share with you ten blogs that inspire, and also ten things about me. So I'll start with a little about me...
I have been married for 15 years.
I have four gorgeous children, play school through to high school age.
I am an artist (when I have the time!!!) and have sold my work in exhibitions locally and through a gallery on the coast.
I love anything creative and have dabbled in different crafts, but I'm loving stamping and card making the most, and I love being part of the Stampin' Up family.
I love to cook if it is creating a masterpiece, but the evening meal can be mundane when I'm trying to put something on the table every night!
I am allergic to peanuts.
I studied Landscape Architecture at the University of Canberra, which is also where my hubby studied Graphic Design!
I have always wanted to visit Italy and the surrounding countries (because of Art and Architecture etc), but ever since my brother and his wife traveled around the world I have added some more stops to the list including the Iguassu Falls in South America.
I love beautiful landscapes, from vast and overwhelming (mountains, plains, stormy skies etc) to 'up close' with nature (the form of a tree or the way sunlight falls on dry grass).
I love to stand on a hill top or mountain top, but I am afraid of heights and don't like to stand on the edge of a lookout.
Now, ten people I would like to pass this award on to...
