Hello from me...

Hi everyone! I'm a little bit late in introducing myself, I currently have a sickling home from school so I'm not getting much time to blog or craft! 

A little bit about me.. 

So this is me ^^^
My photo is a couple of years old, and I can't seem to find any newer ones, but I like this one so we'll go with it, lol. You should see my passport photo.. woah!! Not good.

Anyhoo.. My name is Sandie and I live in a Southern Ireland mad house with my husband, kiddos, the dog, the cat and a tank full of Mollies. I left my job as a web designer in 2004 and became a SAHM. When my daughter was born in 2005 I wanted to learn how to scrapbook so a good friend from the States sent me a whole bunch of stuff to get started with. From there it progressed to mini albums and eventually I bought my first image stamp in 2008 – the rest, as they say, is history! I am totally addicted to papercrafts and I could spend hours in my craftroom cutting, scoring and hot gluing flowers to anything that doesn't move :P 

 My preferred colouring mediums are copic markers and distress inks but I also dabble with pencils, chalks & watercolours. I am very much a flowers and pearls gal and I am also a patterned paper fanatic (ahem...hoarder!) I love love love to alter things, especially boxes and jars - you can make the cutest little giftbox from the box off of your moisturiser, lol. Nothing gets thrown out, unless my hubby gets to it first!! 

To celebrate the launch of A Creative Romance I am giving away a little candy to one random person who links up HERE on my blog.

Don't forget to check back on MAY 1st for the launch of the blog!!!!
