Another Featured Designer Friday is here Sweet Shoppers, and this week we’re bringing you part two of Christine’s 4 in ’15 spotlight which is going to give you a peek at some of her favorite kits, a look at some gardens she dreams of having and MORE! I have been loving the chance to get to know our designers a little better through words and pictures, and I hope you have been enjoying it, too! Don’t forget between now and next Thursday, January 29th, you’ll get Stand By You, Christine’s scrumptious full-sized featured designer kit, FREE when you spend $10 in the shoppe!
Taking selfies is really not my thing – I love looking at other peoples’ but feel weird doing it myself! All these were taken in 2014.

I really love gardening, something I inherited from my parents. As yet, I haven’t had the opportunity to do anything amazing, but I dream about it all the time! A small veggie patch and some pots is all circumstances have allowed for to date, but one day my garden will have features like these…
Top left: A massive market garden, with everything we need to provide for ourselves (including chooks), and some left over to sell at the markets.
Top right: A huge outdoor kitchen incorporated into the garden. A big pizza oven is a must, and enough room for all our family and friends to socialise, cook and eat in comfort.
Bottom left: A ‘chill out’ zone with a water feature. Somewhere to read a book, snooze, be inspired or just meditate.
Bottom right: A large tree with winding stairs up to a secret tree house, for kids and adults alike.
I’m in love with my camera (Canon EOS 7D), but really don’t use it often enough at the moment. The iPhone is far too convenient! But one day, I’m going to take a course and really learn how to use it to it’s full potential…
Top left: Jim and Henry. A zoomed in version of this won first prize at a local country show.
Top right: Henry playing in the rain and mud. That’s a piece of white chocolate in his hand – he ate it, mud & all!!
Bottom left: I love this photo of Joey – he has such intense, stormy eyes.
Bottom right: Whilst not brilliant in quality, this unedited photo of a massive thunder storm that was about to hit, invokes feelings of dread and excitement in me every time I look at it. The sky just looked ‘unreal’ and was billowing and rolling. When it unleashed, it was violent and incredibly intense!
I love scrapping, but of course don’t do it often enough. One of my New Year resolutions is to make more time to record my family’s memories.
Top left: Henry in the pool – he goes a gorgeous shade of bronze in the summer.
Top right: A trip to Taronga Zoo in Sydney. We had the most amazing day and I took heaps of fantastic animal photos!

Bottom right: Snorkelling on the reef during a trip to Fiji. I love the colours in this one. It was created using Bula!, which is still available in my shop.
Don’t forget to check back in with us next Friday and every Friday after that as we put the rest of our incredible designers into the spotlight. Each of them have such quirky personalities that I’m positive each week will bring new surprises and special treats that we can’t wait to share with you!
