My first blog!

This is a photo of the boys in one of the waterholes at Hodgson Downs on the September school holidays.
Well my profile pretty well tells it all already. My husband and I manage a cattle station in the Northern Territory called Hodgson Downs Station. The station is over a million acres. My husband is the manager and I am employed as the Administration Officer.
We have been happily married for 16 years and have 2 great kids. My eldest is Todd who boards with his grandparents in Rockhampton in Qld and is doing year 9. My youngest is doing Year 5 with Katherine School of the Air and I home tutor him.
When I have time my favourite thing is crafts. I try my hand at many, but at the moment my love is scrapbooking and card making and I am in the process at the moment of becoming a Stampin' Up demonstrator.
The idea of this blog is to keep family and friends up to date with what we are up to, but also to put some of my craft projects online for my crafty friends. I hope to keep this site up to date as much as possible and try and upload photos of cards etc as I make them, but also photos of our day to day.
We are in the process of getting a house out there at the moment, so I am living in Katherine and John is living in a cabin at Hodgson. We do a lot of driving between the 2 places. (Just under 3 hours). So that is the gist of it all, I hope I don't bore you to tears. Please don't hesitate to comment or contact me at any time, it will be great to hear from you!
