Yes Ladies, this amazing scrapper is our jack for the month! I could say heaps about her, but she has said it so well herself, so here is a little about Ngaire :)

About me: Ten things you may not know and may not want to know!! LOLOL:

I would love to be a biker chick, and hope we can buy a Harley when Paul retires. One of the ones with a huge seat with arms.:)
I am a bit of a prude. I am also rather eccentric.
I am terrified of toads, they make me physically ill. Spiders and snakes don’t worry me at all.
My eyes are green with a navy blue rim, and orange flecks.
I am addicted to crossword scratchies and back scratches.
I have my new scrap studio planned in my head… all except the wall colours, ( I am leaning towards a wall of strawberry pink, with red gingham accents..)
I love colour, buttons and ribbons, my favourite paper range is without doubt Basic Grey.
I want another tattoo.
I am very A type, and hate to be wrong. I love an argument, and like EVERYTHING to be in it’s place. I hate disorganisation, clutter and mess.
I have strangely small feet and hands for my height.

My scrap space :
· is in the entrance to our home.
· Is painted a deep yellow/green and has polished wood floors
· Is too small for my needs.
· Has cupboards and draws from Ikea
· Is cluttered and has a huge window to outside.
· Has an antique printers draw for stamp storage.
· Have I mentioned it is too small for my needs??
· Could do with a good clean up.
· Is a part of me.. and a reflection on my taste and my eccentricities.

My Name is Ngaire Bartlam. I live in Brissie Qld , with my darling husband of 15 years Paul, and our girls Georgie and Belle. We have two cats, Rueben and Boo Boo, and a dog, Dougal. A veteran aussie scrapper of 8 ½ years, I have written two books : Lumpy Bumpy and my new book released last year: “Its all about YOU”.
I regularly create for Fiskars, Scrapbook Creations, and Tarisota Collections. A long term tutor for the ISC conventions, I am now a free lance artist and instructor.
I scrap about just about everything.. the good and the bad. The little things and the big, . , My family and friends, and I like to also take the time to create layouts for and about me. My passion is to encourage All women to do the same thing.. as both a record of their family and future generation, and more importantly as a release and as a affirmation of themselves.
