About Me

My photo
Hi I live in a rural town of Hort growers but only 35 mins from Auckland. I have a passion for Interior Design, and grow a few hundred or so of Topiary Buxus. My husband is Mike and we have been married 35 years with two sons, Shane 22 and Ryan 19 who race a midget and Sprintcar. They have both been NZ Champions and we are extremely proud of them. We have Humphrey the cat and my dear wee Bella a Affenpincher (monkey dog). I will now be forever poor in cash as my awsome girlfriend introduced me to scrapbooking and now we are crazy with it. My wish list grows by the day lol. We have stay-overs and each one sets different challenges for LOs. Life is very very busy and all I hope for in time is to have more for this addictive passion. A great outlet for my greative internal build-up of ideas. My motto is LIVE LOVE LAUGH & SCRAP
