Kate (Kateypie) here with a Sunday Spotlight for you. This week I’m focusing on a new member who is also a fellow New Zealander!
What is your main job/career?
I am an administrator for 5 crèches part time
Are you married/kids/pets?
I have been married for 12 years to a wonderful man and I have two lovely boys who are 8 and 6 years old.
Where do you call home?
Where ever my family is… is where my home is. But New Zealand is my home even though I was born in Bermuda.
What are your three favorite foods?
Sushi – I tell you I can not get enough of it.
Roast Beef – hmmm just the smell of it cooking does it for me.
Indian Food – because it is different.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Chocolate all the way. I don’t tend to go for anything else if there is chocolate there.
Do you prefer salty or sweet snacks?
What is your favorite beverage?
V is my favorite at the moment but it isn’t good for me with all the caffeine.
What is your least favorite food?
Broccoli is my least favorite and can’t understand why anyone would like it ha ha ha.
PC or Mac?
How long have you been digi-scrapping/How did you get into it?
I found out about digital scraping in 2004 and tried a couple of pages but was scared they looked silly so gave up for a while until I found that I couldn’t afford to do the paper scrapbooking. Now I am hooked and I really try to change my style but find I tend to go with the clean lines… but would love to be a little more eclectic with my layouts… I will one day
What program do you use to digi-scrap with?
I digi-scrap with Photoshop 7 and I must admit I got CS2 (think that is how you show it) but got annoyed because it couldn’t find anything so installed photoshop7 again… slack really but I will have to install it again and get up with the play.
What are your hobbies besides digi-scrapping?
I don’t know if you can call it a hobby but weight loss is a hobby at the moment with kickboxing and walking and trying my hardest to like exercise…
What is the most challenging part of scrapbooking for you?
Making my own designs is the hardest. I so want to do more and design things of my own but it is a little overwhelming and not sure where to start.
What would you like to learn to do (or do better) not related to scrapbooking?
Would like to learn how to be a Lifestyle coach but haven’t got the money to leave my job to be able to study.
What are your favorite books/authors?
Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella.
It is the funniest book I have ever read.
What are your favorite movies?
Under the Tuscan Sun is my most favorite movie and I could watch it again and again. I really would love to go to Tuscany or Venice and soak up the culture.
What is your favorite quote?
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started”
What is one of your goals for 2008?
To spend more time with my family and cherish every moment of this time before they grow up. To enjoy this life with my husband as well because we have one life to live and we need to live it.
And here are some of my favourite layouts from Scrappinkiwi. As you can see, she has come a long way in all areas of her life and I think that is something to be admired.. also, the love she has for her family is evident in each layout.
Look at that! And she’s still going!
Love these layouts!
Hope everyone’s had a great weekend!
