I’ve applied to join Group 8 of the Sisterhoold of Blogging Stampers, so am working on getting the image and links onto my sidebar. It’s not as easy as it is with blogger, but I think I have the idea now….just need to put it into practice.
So, please bear with my while I fiddle with the sidebar and add all the links to my Sisters in Group 8.
**EDITED TO ADD**
I’ve finally managed to add the sidebar image, and also add all my new sisters to the blogroll, as well as drop round to all of their blogs to leave a comment.
Thanks for all the lovely comments that I’m getting from all my new sisters too.
Some of the sisters I think I know, but for anyone who hasn’t read by blog before, here goes:-
I’m 46, am married to Guy, and we have two kids Rob (19.5) and Lydia (10 in January). We live in rural Kent on what used to be an Apple/top fruit farm, but we sold off quite a bit of the land, and are just left with about 6 acres of paddock and garden. Usually, one of my friends keeps her ponies in the paddock, but a careless driver ploughed through the hedge and they are currently staying elsewhere til it’s fixed.
My real name is Kym, but I like to be called Kay by my friends.
I’ve cut, stuck and coloured all of my life, but have been stamping/scrapbooking for 11 years – I’m hooked! Especially, on COPIC Markers. Why? They are the best colouring medium by far, they blend so easily, an individual colour can be layered to give a darker tone, and they are so easy to use. Beware though, once you start down that road, there’s no turning back, with hundreds of yummy colours to collect. That’s quite a problem for me actually, ‘cos I’m borderline OCD!!!
What else can I tell you………..mmmm, I was the founding member of UK STampers. By day I’m a Bank Manager, and by night I run my own online papercraft shop, Stamp Galaxy.
I used to be quite an artistic stamper, but have now found cute………in particular I love Sugar Nellie and Magnolia. I was very excited that we’ve finally got Stampin’ Up in the UK, and my friend Stampingcaz feeds my addiction in this area.
My other love is comedy, and am a huge Jon Richardson/Russell Howard fan, as well as loving anything that contains David Mitchell (Mitchell & Webb), Mark Olver or Michael McIntyre. David Tennant (Dr Who) is right at the top of my eye candy list.
Other random stuff:
Love purple in any shape or form.
I recently bought a rowing machine, and will be joining a Rowing Club in 2008.
I used to be a riding instructor, but because I have Lupus, I can’t do that anymore.
Flowers, ribbon and bling are always good, and you can never have enough ink pads or stamps.
I love (but can’t eat as I’m watching my weight) Marks & Spencer Blackcurrant Sundaes, Sugar Mice, pancakes or anything chocolate based.
Favourite pieces of technology are my Fuji Finepix camera (new for Xmas) and my Sony Video Walkman (new for my birthday recently).
