Short bio: Hi. I'm Lilith. I was born in Leuven, Belgium on 26th January 1979. As a child I grew up in South Africa and my parents moved back to Europe when I was a teenager and settled in the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg. I now live in the South of Belgium in the Ardennes. I am a mother to four marvellous but mischievous boys (Damien, NoƩ (9), Robin (6) and Elouan (3)) and have been married to the most wonderful man for 11 years. I'm a foreign language teacher. I teach Dutch and English to French speaking students and I LOVE it. Besides my passion for languages and teaching, there is also music, photography and on the top of my list SCRAPBOOKING. I started just after getting married as I wanted to make a wedding album. I really got hooked when my two eldest boys were born in 2003 and I haven't stopped since. It helps me unwind from my hectic days being a mum and teaching teenagers. Scrapbooking has made me realise that I can be creative and I love documenting my family's life. It has made me become more confident and willing to have a go.

Favorite thing to scrap: I love scrapping photos of my boys. They make me happy and inspire me.

Favorite American Crafts product: Patterned Paper. I am a paper addict.

5 fun facts:

1. My feet and hands are ALWAYS freezing cold even in summer.

2. I love tea and drink it all day long. My all time favourite is Rooiboos tea which is a plant from South Africa where I grew up as a child. It brings back fond memories.

3. As a child I wanted to be an opera singer and I still do.I love to sing.

4. I have an extremely high pain threshold. I never get any anesthesia when I go to the dentist as I don't feel a thing. That probably explains why I didn't think childbirth was too bad.

5. I hope one day I'll be able to combine my passion for teaching with my love for scrapbooking.
