The 'Three Sisters' & the Jameison Valley ...... one of the 'touristy' spots in the Blue Mountains National Park.

Whose 'Creative Corner' I hear you ask???

Hi, I'm Chris Bennett AKA 'Chris in Oz'. I live in the beautiful Blue Mountains west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia (affectionately known as 'Oz' or 'The Land Down-Under'). I'm in my mid-50's, have been married for 30+ years to THE most wonderful man and I'm the PROUDEST MUM of 2 grown children. My DS is into photography and has taken some amazing shots. You can see some of them in 'Simon's Gallery'. My DD is a High School teacher who is committed to educating our youth of today. I was a Teacher/Assistant Principal in the field of Special Education for over 16 years until I retired in June 2004.

I've been involved in art and craft activities for most of my life and I became a 'stampaholic' and 'technique junkie' to 'save my sanity' after an injury in 2003. I began by making cards and slowly, but surely, became addicted to ATCs, hand-made books, altered books, boxes, bottles, tins, jigsaw puzzles and anything else that stands still long enough to be altered. I love texture and colour and I'm gradually stepping outside my comfort zone to experiment and explore other media and styles. Check out 'My Gallery' to see some more of my work.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I also take photos, I don't know how 'good' my photos are, but I just love to take them ...... so every now and then I might just sneak one in ...... I hope you don't mind!!! Well, not too much!!! LOL!!!

One World - One Heart News

'ONLY' 200 blogs left to visit.

I'm still visiting the sites on the list and hope to have visited all participants by early next week. I've been at home with the flu since last Sunday and I think that's the only reason I've been able to get through as many as I have. I've not had the energy to do much else but sit in front of the computer and check out the wonderful talent out the in 'Bloglandia'. I have to share something embarrassing, but quite funny, I was on such a good roll yesterday that I left a comment on my own blog!!! Yes, that's right, my own blog, but wait, the funniest (and most embarrassing part) is that I didn't even realise what I'd done until I had to moderate my own comment!!! LOL!!! I decided at that point in time, that I needed a break.

BTW, there's a great number of blogs that I will be visiting again so that I can have a good look around. I think my 'Google Reader' is going to be working over time in the near future. Well done everybody.

Until next time......

Chris in Oz
