Today I am excited to introduce my 3 month guest starting in January 2014. You might have already seen Natalie's amazing news? She is one of the new members on Studio Calico! HOW amazing is that. What is funny is that I asked Natalie some time back if she would be a guest for me in 2014 for 3 months and it was almost half way through the year. I thought Natalie would think I was whack for asking so far ahead. But turns out it worked out well for her, WIN/WIN....
My name is Natalie Elphinstone and I live in Melbourne with my ever-supportive husband and two beautiful girls aged 7 and 4.
I work full time as a doctor specialising in Obstetrics and Gynaecology but in my spare time (and every other opportunity in between) I'll be in my scrap-room crafting up a storm as I find it very relaxing. I particularly love it for its memory-keeping abilities and you'll find journaling on my projects without fail. I write about the who, what, when, where but I also write about my thoughts and dreams, the everyday routines and the funny things my kids say.
I'm blessed to have had many opportunities to share my work to a wider audience by being published in magazines both online and in 'the real world', as well as working for multiple design teams. Right now I'm designing for Paper Stories and am a Jenni Bowlin Ambassador. I'm super excited to see what 2014 brings, as amongst other things I'll be teaching (for the first time!) at Escape 2 Create retreat in March. I'm so thankful to Kellie for inviting me to be her Guest Designer as I truly adore her products, and I can't wait to get started.
In the meantime you can catch up with all my adventures on my blog: One Scrappy Doctor (http://onescrappydoctor.blogspot.com)
