THE NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK

ANYTHING GOES!
Welcome, Everyone, to our new home!  We are just so excited to kick off our new challenge in our new home.  Kathi, the Designers and I look forward to having you join us here on the Block and we hope that you, too, will become residents at 613 Avenue "C"reate!  Hugz, Chana


Our Sponsor This Week is Bugaboo Stamps!
The challenge winner will receive 7 Digital Stamps of  their choice!

We would like to thank Desire Fourie for agreeing to join us as our inaugural Guest Designer.  I am sure that many of you have seen her work and already know about her amazing talent.
                                                                                     
I have been born and bred in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape (South Africa) and currently reside in Johannesburg.
I am a keen Photographer. Avid Gardener. Energetic Hiker. Ad hoc Race Walker/Jogger. Addicted to Spinning. Scrapaholic. Committed Scrapbook & Card Teacher. Founder/Manager Doing Life Online Shoppe www.doinglife.co.za . Bedazzled Beader. Card creator. Mosaic Enthusiast. PA/Secretary/Bookkeeper. Chocoholic.

I started my personal blog http://www.desiref.blogspot.com way back in January 2006. DOING LIFE mainly showcases my passions for photography, CARDmaking, scrapbooking and various other crafts as well as reporting about (scrap) happenings in my day-to-day life.  I have met amazing like minded friends in cyber space, some of whom have become real life friends as well.  I have been teaching scrapbooking and cardmaking on an ongoing basis since 2002.      In the words of Richard Jeffries:  "The hours when the mind is absorbed by beauty are the only hours we live."

    No worries, Ms. Beebeebabs. Inlinkz has a new format, we are trying it, but may go back to the old one if it gets too confusing for followers.
