Introducing Karen & Sue

Hi I'm Karen. I grew up in a small country town where my Mum thought that naming me Karen would be unusal and no-one else would think of it (ha).

I am a SAHM with three children, Matt 18, Meaghan, nearly 14, and Henry 7. My husband, Geoff, works in IT and is tolerant of all my hobbies (although quite a bit of eye rolling has been known to occur if I talk about my craft too much..). We live in Canberra, Australia, which is a great place to work and bring up the kids, we love it here. I have a degree in Environmental Science but haven't used it for a long time. My passion is reading and crafting (mostly scrapping but also sewing and knitting) and I spend far too much time on the computer. I have to say I am not the world's best housekeeper but really who has time to scrap AND dust??

I am hoping we start travelling more as the kids get older, but will just dream and follow the lives of crafty friends overseas instead, what a wonderful thing the internet is...
I am looking forward to getting to know everyone involved in Southern Girls, it will be lots of fun.

Hi! My name is Sue. I live in Warkworth, a beautiful little town about 50minutes drive north of Auckland, on a very pretty block of land with a big garden, some native bush and overlooking the Mahurangi River. My DH is the gardener and I am the overseer! LOL! We have three grown up children, 2 sons and a daughter, who have left home and are all settled, two nearby and one in Sydney.

I have always been a craft addict and after years of quilt and bear making I came across scrapbooking when a friend talked me into going to a Creative Memories party. So, now, I not only have a cupboard full of waiting fabric, but a room full of patterned paper, flowers, ribbons etc, etc, etc!!! I love it all!

I love doing a variety of styles in my scrapbooking. I love challenges and I love helping and inspiring others. I am very excited about our new Southern Girls Challenge blog and can’t wait to see everyone’s creations!
