This month our featured designer is Vicki Robinson Designs.  I'm particularly delighted to highlight Vicki's fabulous designs as she is a friend and we go back quite a long way, and apart from that, she is just a great designer!!  I particularly love her brushes and overlays.   Over time Vicki's designs have evolved and I now consider her to be a front runner in the art journaling genre.

GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT VICKI

I've been retired from the business world for about 10 years and - at least through the end of July - I live way out in the country, in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California. We've recently purchased a new home outside of Sacramento in order to be closer to my son and his wife, who have been promising to make me a grandma soon! It will be very hard to leave country living for (almost) city life again, but I'm looking forward to enjoying our time closer to family. I took up designing in 2010, with the encouragement and support of Just Art's fearless leader, Robyn and also Sandy Collins Phillips back in the days of the Digital Design Den. Many of the JA members are old friends from that time and know that I never considered myself artistic at all until the design bug bite me. I TRIED to retire from designing at the end of 2016, but by the end of a Winter filled with art endeavors, I was ready to come back!

GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT DIANE.

I grew up in Emporia Kansas and have always maintained my mid-western roots. After graduating from High School I married my first husband and we moved to Arkansas City Kansas (on the Oklahoma border) - I worked and attended college and he taught Junior High Science.  

We moved to Laramie Wyoming and I continued to work and he planned to attend graduate school but those plans were never meant to be completed. He died in a single car accident at 27. My home and my job were in Cheyenne and I put finishing college on hold for a few years; I married again and had a daughter, Rochelle.  That married ended in divorce and Rochelle and I were content to be a family of two.  Rochelle was very ill as a newborn and throughout her childhood she was in and out of hospitals. Her care and my job filled my universe.

They say you find love when you are not looking for it, and this was the case for me. I met Jim (at the Cheyenne Club!) and it was love at first sight. We have been married now for almost 33 years. Our son, Matthew, completed our family in 1986.

My job brought us from Cheyenne to Omaha, Nebraska in 1988. We miss the plains of Wyoming very much but are grateful for the career advancement that came to me.  Jim was a professional photographer (now retired) and that allowed him to move with more ease than many two income families would experience.

I worked (and traveled for work) and returned to collage, graduating from UNO and then with a graduate degree in Information management from Emporia State (life comes full circle, returning to my home town for grad school.)

Tell us a little about yourself.
Where have you lived? I've lived in the UK, well born and bred there but moved to Oz in 1969 so this is now my home place and nationality and I'd not have it any other way.

Where do you live now?
I live in a North East suburb of Adelaide in South Australia. It's called Modbury and it's about 10 mins out of the city as the crow flies but by car in traffic about 30 mins, wish I was a crow

Who is in your family?
Hubby, me and one grown up son

Do you have any pets?
Sure do, currently we have 2 cats, numerous fish and a budgie called Sparkie (for those who don't know a budgie is a budgerigar which is a very small version of a parrot)

Do you play a sport?
Huh what's that??? lol...oh no but I do walk daily

What is your favourite book?
I have too many to name but I read pretty much anything but I'm not into science fiction or Mills and Boon. Fav authors would be Di Morrissy, Fiona McIntosh, Graham Masterton, James Pattinson, Ken Follett, Philippa Gregory, Jeffery Archer and Jack Higgins to name a few..see told you I read anything lol

How did you start in digital scrapbooking?
I was actually doing Iris folding and Teabag folding and was crusing the Net for ideas and patterns for card making and stumbled across a site that gave away free software and that was it I was hooked.
