Zodiac sign: Capricorn
Lives: in beautiful Cooranbong, NSW
Known for: A serious obsession with RED, not measuring anything, lots of layers in my work and loving a good chat and a laugh
Do anything creative - stamp, scrapbook, sew. Head up the Watagan mountins with my hubby and kiddies, swim the the ocean and drink red wine.
Loves to create: anything and everything. Layouts, cards, and mini albums rate pretty high.
Favourite Darkroom Door product: The stamps - nothing like the crispness of stamping with RED rubber.
Have you ever been in a darkroom? Um, my bedroom is dark at night?? Does that count??
Let’s say you’ve been invited to come into our darkroom for a day. What would you bring with you? My fave inks, a couple of blocks of chocolate and a sense of humour.
Are you afraid of the dark? Not anymore :) I was petrified as a kid.
