Designing
I love to create ... I love the feeling of be able to give color and form to the ideas...

Creating Stationary
Decorative paper seems to pile up at my house, so I try to come up with ways to use it. Recently I’ve been using it to make handmade cards and envelopes.

Vector Art
It can be resized without worry!

Reading
I love books. The real ones, not the digital ones. I like how they look and how feel.

Doggies
In special my lovely labrador... He is really intelligent and kindly.

Dance
Is my passion…
