If you haven't stepped into the glittery whirlpool of HND before, my name is Renae. You can call me Nae, as thats what all my friends call me. I am a 30 something, married, crazy cat lady who loves to surround herself in all things creative. I have been scrapbooking for the past 15 years and that is where my heart happily rests. I love working with paper and decorating.. It really is my life passion.
I live on the beautifully sunny Gold Coast in Australia with my above mentioned husband, Josh and our two beautiful kitties, Mini and Pipa. We have been trying for a little baby of our own for 2 years now and have been unsuccessful.. You will see on here from time to time updates on my infertility story, I hope you don't mind. It is as much a part of me as my creativity.
As for work, my life is layer upon layer of creativity. My "day job" is a casual sales assistant at our local Spotlight store here. Being part of the Craft Department at Spotlight leaves you covered in glitter but it is one of the most enjoyable jobs I have ever had. I just love it so much.
My other "jobs" are more ones I have just adopted over time.. They pay, but not enough to keep the house going lol. I am a youtuber, I create videos about my scrapbooking projects and designs and also more real life videos when I feel the need to vlog. I am also a Jamberry consultant. When Jamberry first reached Australia, I like many other women had great success but not over the past year that business has thinned some what. I still love the products and use them every single day.. You will always see images of my pretty fingers in my videos or my Instagram.
This little boy below, well he is just my world. 2 years ago my sister fell pregnant with an unplanned child. That little boy has become my everything and now that she is a single mum, my husband and I have taken on the "second parent" role in his life... He is the subject of a lot of my layouts and creations. You will definitely see his chubby little cheeks around here from time to time.
I hope you will all come along with me and follow me on not only this blog but also my Instagram and my Youtube channel. You can find all the links to the right in the side bar right under my picture. I love hearing from you all so please don't be afraid to comment! I just want to thank you all so much for taking the time to come and check out my sparkly little piece of the interwebs.
