I am a Book Artist and love making something out of nothing. I love anything handmade.
I am the daughter of a farmer and originally come off a Farm in South Canterbury, in the South Island. I have a brother and a sister who still live in the South and a wonderful Dad and JenJen.
When I left school I came to Wellington and have never left! I have a gorgeous family. Gerry, my partner and 3 beautiful boys. The twins who are 6 and an 8 yr old son who has Down syndrome.
We live in a wonderful seaside village called Paekakariki on the Kapiti coast.
One of my favourite all time things to do is to go second hand shopping all by myself or with some best friends and find treasures that might seem like junk to others!
I love this quote...Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery and Today is a Gift.
I love getting dressed up everyday! even if I am not going anywhere.
I love my Family
..what my son with Down syndrome has taught me. To be kind, considerate. Not judge people and to take people at face value and get to know them first before judging. To make the most of every day like it is your last and to smile all the time(almost). To do and be what I want to to be not worrying about what others think and to hug more!
To cherish and love the people that are the most important to me and surround myself with only those that build me up.
...the sound of rain on our roof
and being creative every day
