I am married to a very very busy business man who is rarely home, and we have two children, a son, Mitchell, aged 11 and a daughter, Kate, aged 9. She loves to do crafty stuff too!! Mitchell's main passion would have to be cricket! - Go Aussies!!!
I love cricket too!!! We did an overseas trip in our last June / July holidays of which was included a visit to Lords to watch the second Ashes test. Very sad for the Aussies, but we are making up for it now in Australia!!!
My hubby is a very keen fisherman (and so is Mitchell); he spends a lot of his free time on his boat when not working.
I think I'm stuck in the 70's!! I love a lot of the music from that era. Maybe its because of the memories that the songs provoke!!
I like Amy Grant, Cliff Richard, Abba, Bruce Springsteen ...
At the moment I'm reading some 'My Story' books ... stories about famous people from history (eg Mary Queen of Scots, Anne Boleyn). Since our trip to England a lot of these stories fascinate me.
I also have quite a few books to assist with ideas for raising positive, well balanced children ...
There's also a bunch of books that I have that give ideas and inspiration relating to Artist Journals and Mixed Media. I am soo enjoying looking at other peoples' work ... I just have to get my studio to a point where there's enough space to be able to work in it, instead of bringing everything out to the dining room table ... and then having to pack it away ... and then getting it out again ... and then putting it away again ... I think you get the idea ...???!!!
Oh, and my Bible is a pretty important book to me too!
Hmmm ... favourite movies ... would you believe the most recent movie that I've seen several times ... no, more than several times, would have to be' How to Train Your Dragon' ... yes, you can tell I have children!!! I think I need to get out more!!! ;-)
Well, I really enjoyed 'Dave', 'Apollo 13', 'Sleepless in Seattle', 'Field of Dreams', 'Back to the Future', 'Finding Forrester', 'Pretty Woman', 'Nottinghill', 'Twister' - notice these have all been around for a while!!!
I don't actually watch a heap of TV, but I do like to watch the cricket when the Aussies are playing ... if I'm not working ... or getting dinner ready ... or dealing with kids ... or .....
I enjoy watching 'MasterChef Australia' with my kids ... and also 'Shaun the Sheep'!!!
When hubby is home we do watch a bit together ... really enjoy watch NCIS with him.
When he's not home I like to see 'Better Homes & Gardens', 'Who Do You Think You Are'; they've been showing some really oldies ... F-Troop (been recording these) - used to watch this when I was younger ...
Am getting into Artist Journalling / Mixed Media - very excited about this!!! I have VERY recently made my first ever ATC - so much fun!! I love using up little bits and pieces!! Scrapbooking; Card Making; Patchwork & quilting, although haven't done much in a loooooonnng time!!! I love to look at scrappy quilts ... again using up little bits and pieces!!!
Would love to do a journal which includes fabric pages as well, using really interesting fabrics and fibres. I have HEAPS of interesting fibres ('wools') that I have been collecting for a while and would love to include them in journals. I've also been collecting old books that the library has been getting rid of with the idea of using them to make into a journal or using the pages in other journals.
As embellishments and fabrics, I love dragon flies, butterflies, frogs ... (we actually have some REAL tadpoles in a big pot outside and have had our own baby froglets in our garden)!
Also love ivory-ish textured fabrics and embellishments ...
I love lots of colours ... probably a lot of brights ... have been bringing in red into the decorating of our home ..
