About me

Location Kehlen, Luxembourg
Introduction I'm an Aussie living in Luxembourg since early '98. Luxembourg has 3 official languages (French, German and Luxembourgish) so my 2 older sons, who were very young when we left Australia, now speak 4 languages fluently (the older one can also speak a little Spanish and Arabic). In other words they put their mum to shame! I did do French at school but as I never expected to use it, I never really gave it my full attention. Funny the twists your life can take. I started making cards in '97 just after my second son was born. I felt a desperate need to express myself artistically - probably surrounded by too many males. I've been collecting stamps and more recently die cuts ever since - often at a rate faster than I can use them. My youngest son Simon was a pleasant surprise in 2004.
Interests Stamping, Cardmaking, Singing, Movie making
Favorite Movies West Side Story, South Pacific, My Fair Lady, all the Shrek movies, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Notting Hill, You have Mail and the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice are things I never tire of watching. I also love science fiction and fantasy. I loved the movie the Green Mile but it took a long time before I was ready to sit down and watch it again.
Favorite Music I love most types of music - although the heavy metal my eldest son listens to is hard to take in anything but small doses. Probably my favourite is songs from Musicals - I love a song that tells a story, not just one with a catchy tune.
Favorite Books Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Artemis Fowl, anything from Isaac Asimov.
