Ahh March

I have edited this so please see below :)

And so the first day of Autumn is here, however no-one told the weather and good old Sydney town is in for another stinker..... so lets put the air conditioners on again, grab an ice cold drink and enjoy learning about one of the true Ladies of the scrapbooking business...

Hint # 1 Her style is elegant
Hint # 2 She LOVES white cardstock
Hint # 3 Her pages are timeless
One of Sally's fantastic new projects!

Introducing the wonderful Sally Wilson:
I am the creative Director of Delish Designs, wife to Anthony, sister to 4 others and sometime a big dreamer. I’m creative, quick witted and loyal and this is sounding like a star sign!!! Will it just do to say, I’m just an ordinary girl, enjoying being creative & improving my talents, loving the sanctuary of my own home and occupants and I’m experiencing the similar struggles, wishes and hopes as the rest of us good folk. 

What inspired you to start Delish Designs?
My Grandmother, Mim. Mim was our Family Historian who scrapped and documented not just her life and her posterity, but also her ancestors. When mim passed away I received her life’s work and thus a budding interest in archival products began.

How long have you been scrapbooking?
Delish has been in business for 5 years, however when I have the opportunity to scrap I do.

When you scrapbook, what do you start with first?
Always start with a blank canvas, white cardstock.. Then the story to document.

Can you describe your style? Clean and elegant

Your favourite tools? Martha Stewart Craft knife, sew easy clear trim-ruler and mat, Herma repositionable glue Chaetae Grey Tsukineko ink 

What do you wish that you knew when you were first starting out?
There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a TIME, all things in succession. “Success depends on a chain reaction”. You take an action which leads to a further action, which leads to another action and finally you get a result that you may never have dreamed was possible. There is one catch, the process often takes a long TIME to work, it’s the little things that matter

The biggest challenge you face? Choc-peanut butter ice-cream or hazelnut sorbet.

Do you create every day?  Absolutely, may not be scrapbooking but I’m definitely creative everyday, we all are…

Describe your perfect creative area? Clean, with quite background noise

Does that resemble where you actually create? Yes

Do you prefer to create in a group or by yourself? Love myself time, but do enjoy the occasion scrapfest with family and or friends

What makes you feel wonderful? Many, many things, but top of the list would be a 43 year old boy and his two dogs.

Why is the past important? It reveals who you can become, what you can overcome and how you can influence the present

Can you finish this sentence: I like to daydream about ....”all the good stuff and then some”

As I said at the beginning, one of the nicest ladies in the industry..... now for Australian residents there will be a prize for leaving a comment on this blog post. Photos and updates still to come..... As promised here are the photos, sorry for the delay my computer and Sally's are obviously not talking ;0)
