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

WOW, 200+ Comments!!!

You all know what that means, don't you??? Time to add another item, so I now have 3 give-aways to be won!!! I've also decided that the winners can choose which give-away they'd like to win. Woo Hoo!!! I'm loving this event even more this year than I did last year. Oh, and I forgot to say that I only have to visit wagon numbers #512 to #611 and I will have seen them all. I haven't added my name for every give-away; I didn't want to be too greedy!!! Mind you, some of my visits have been short, but each and every one of them has been oh so very sweet. I've enjoyed my visits so much that all I can say, in the words of someone famous, "I'll be back!!!"

Until next time......

Chris in Oz
