About Me


Hi, my name is Denise, I'm 43 years of age and I live in Hobart, Tasmania - my friends call me Dolly.  I have become a Copic colouring enthusiast.  I was introduced to scrapbooking and card making over 10 years ago and have found a new passion in Copic Colouring.

After a difficult time in my life I struggled with anxiety and depression.  A gal pal introduced me to Copic colouring one night over coffee and I fell in love immediately, I thought I'd found something I could be good at and it was soooooo relaxing.  My very first image was Tilda from the Magnolia range.  I have kept this image in a safe place as something to look back on (not very good I might add lol).  Within a few months I had purchased over 100 pens and it was colouring that helped me on my road to recovery and lessen my anxiety.    I have since purchased just about every colour in the Copic Ciao and Sketch range.  Expensive hobby but well worth it :)

  My cards are considered CAS (Clean and Simple) as I focus more on the art of colouring.  I have so many images to make into a card or paper craft project it's crazy - I just love to colour.

I initially started this blog as a back-up to keep all the photos of the colouring that I do.   I've been colouring for a little on 3 years now and my hobby and colouring is now starting to take-off in terms of recognition and being selected to colour for digital stamp companies.  I love the craft community and seeing everyone's inspiration.  My favourite facebook pages/web sites for inspiration are:  Kit and Clowder, Saturated Canary, Slinky Tart and Ppinkydolls.  There are so many others but these are my absolute favourites.

I work full time and enjoy my job but sometimes it just gets in the way of wanting to be crafty ha ha.  Mind you, I need my job to fund my Copic addiction.  
Please also visit and like my page on facebook "Dolly'z Cardz".

My loves are my two gorgeous sons aged 9 & 11, my family, friends, my fur babies (2 birmans), and my longing to visit Paris one day.  My plan is to be standing at the Eiffel Tower on my 50th birthday.  I love a good belly aching laugh and cherish my girlfriends to the moon and back.

My weakness is lemon cheesecake and chocolate milkshakes, not necessarily at the same time however.  I love jewellery, artistic tattoos, make-up and expensive fragrance.  I guess you could also say I have a handbag fetish.  Oh, and storage containers for craft, I may have a little problem there too.  
Thank you for stopping by my blog :)
