Re-Introducing Trace & Lou - Co-owners & Founders of SGC

 Trace

Lou


And lastly introducing…. Lou and Trace! Two friends that meet years ago with 3 hours drive distance between them hatch a plan!!! Let’s do a NZ run challenge blog… DT check, sponsors check… lights, camera, action…
 Lou runs a busy household of 4 children, husband and little lifestyle block.  Pink obsessed and always up for a card or a layout, Lou is constantly trying to find more time to craft, although with a 6, 5, and 2 year old plus a six month old baby things can often be pretty tight on time. Lou is the brains and strict task master of Southern Girls, making sure the girls have their projects in on time, giving out DT badges, writing up posts and doing the occasional facelift on the blog.
Trace works full time, married and has two girls who keeps her extremely busy - Cameron (12) who swims 6.30am doing squad training 7 days a week and comps… and Bailee (9 going on 16 with attitude to boot) who has skating and swimming. Trace manages to squeeze in an hour here and there, but mainly in the weekend in when she gets to play in her craft room, she handles the sponsor side of southern girls, from arranging the ladies into groups so the sponsors are evenly showcased to getting the prizes out to our winners.
