Hi! I am Veronica. I am a 39 year old stay-at-home-mom, married for 16 years to Leon, a lawyer. I have a daughter, Shannon (04-19-1997) and a son, Reece (04-12-2001). Yip, they celebrate their birthdays a week apart! FYI- my husband's birthday is April 16th and mine is April 1st! Expensive month-LOL! We live in Pretoria in sunny South Africa. I've always been passionate about art. I have drawn and painted eversince I can remember. My other passions include photography (obviously!), antiques, and anything French. I have been paper scrapbooking for 5 years and am still hooked, though I must admit, since I started with Digital in March 2007, I now tend to scrap far less with paper. I started designing around the middle of 2007 and am a self-confessed addict! I love that each day I learn something new and I have found the perfect outlet for my creativity! I am thrilled to be part of the GDS Design Team!
