Hello from Australia....
I have today signed up to SU .....

I am a mum of 6.. (yes 6) .....with only 2 living with me... (oldest 2 off on their own... 2 with ex husband)....I have been scrapbooking and cardmaking for quite a few years... but recently have been focussing more on the cardmaking.. the prospect of sorting photos scares me...lol

It is rolling through spring here and summer is rapidly approaching (at least up my end of the country)....

I have spent the last 6 years at university.. and am finding it extremly had to find a job... well I was a service cashier at a supermarket but have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both my knees ( a remenant of surgery 25 yrs ago).. so an admin job it is for me...30 applications in 2 weeks.. and not a nibble....ohh well cest la vie...

I hope to meet lotsof lovley ladies (opps.. and gents??) on here andgetting may ideas.... 9and no doubt yelling for help) ...

take care all..oxox

Welcome Mariarose! From California. I've visited Australia twice and loved it.
Once in Melbourne and once in Cairns. Both for business, sadly I didn't have more than a few days time to spend enjoying. But did love the wine around Melbourne and Victoria Market was incredible! Welcome!
