About me:

Papercraft is my passion!

Hi, my name is Ngaire Ashdown, and I live in Adelaide, South Australia. I'm 61 years old and I have enjoyed various paper crafts since 1996. I've been married to John for 43 years. We have 2 adult sons, Daniel and Thomas. We have lived in Adelaide for over 40 years. 

My passion for papercraft started in 1996 when my Mum introduced me to card making, specifically rubber stamping and gold embossing. What magic is this??? 

I was hooked! Thanks, Mum!

Back then, my craft supplies could fit into a shoebox. 

Nowadays, I am very lucky to have my own craft studio that John built for me (he has his own Handyman business called Help & Handy - contact him if you need any handyman-type work done in your home) He is very good!!!

His mobile number: 0428733456

Since then, I have tried my hand at many other paper crafts like scrapbooking, art journaling, mixed media, beyond the page projects, decorated photo frames, mini albums, to name a few.

Over the past three years, I have been a design team member for Uniquely Creative - a fabulous local scrapbooking and cardmaking business right here in Adelaide, South Australia. I am proud and happy to be a part of Tracey's team. Their products are high quality and affordable. There is a link to their website on my BLOG page. 

Some of my other hobbies include: 

trying new recipes, reading (especially autobiographies and biographies), exercising on my treadmill, spending crafty time with friends.

I invite you to join my mailing list so you can keep up to date with all my crafty news! 

Thanks for popping in, feel free to contact me if you have any questions or feedback. I'd love to hear from you,

Have a happy day,


Ngaire xo
