Announcing Reindeer Cupid !
You already know her as *Nicole*. She joined our Christmas-crazy group on the 12th of December 2007, and has been a very faithful, and helpful, contributor to our forum ever since. I'm proud, and honoured, to have her on the Reindeer Team.
Here are a few *facts* about Reindeer Cupid:
Her birthday is the 26th of March, and she is 35 years old. Her hubby, Jack, has his birthday exactly one week later!
Their wedding anniversary is the 15th of January, and they've been married 7 years. She got married in a purple hippy dress, that she still wears.
They have a six-year-old daughter, Angel. She also has a 12-year-old stepson and an eleven-year-old stepdaughter.
She, and Jack, are both Wiccan, but not currently practicing....life and building a home got in the way. They met online in a Yahoo Group called "Wiccan Way". One week after meeting, in person, for the first time, they moved in together, and have been together ever since! She was shy, and he brought out the confidence in her, and she's very grateful for that.
One month before they were married, Jack changed his surname (by Deed Poll) to "Beltane". They chose "Beltane" because it is the bringing together of the god and goddess. They named Angel after several goddesses/deities....Angel Brigid Selene Beltane.
They are going on a cruise around Australia / New Zealand in March 2009.
She now lives in Cailingiri (near New Norcia / Wongan Hills), but she is a born-and-bred Melbournian.
She has one sister, one brother, two stepbrothers, and a stepsister (named Nicole, too!).
She has 2 dogs...Holly, a New Zealand Huntaway, and Zoe, a Shih It Zu. They have one cat named Ikea (kiki).
When she was a child, she wanted to grow up to be a vet. Her favourite childhood toy was a white cat, given to her by her grandmother, and she still has it.
Her favourite job was volunteering in the kitchen of an Aged Hostel where her grandfather lived. Cooking has always been a passion of hers.
She doesn't drive.
She has her ears pierced...3 on one side and 4 on the other. Her nose is pierced, too, and she prefers to wear a stud in it.
She collects PINK and angels....lots of both! Believe it, or not, before the birth of her daughter she hated the colour pink! Now she can't get enough of it! She has a pink Kitchenaid mixer, a pink Kitchenaid blender, a pink Dell laptop, a pink iPod, and the list goes on..... She says in the last 2 years her collection has grown out of control.
She also collects scrapbooking stuff, old stuff, and "too much stuff", she says.....lol
Her favourite way to relax, when all on her own, is to spend the time scrapbooking.
Her favourite dessert is Hot Chocolate Mudcake and Cream. She also loves Brandy Custard. Her least favourite food is strawberries, followed by fish.

Cupid is a very loving reindeer, which is how this animal got its name. A very good running companion for Comet, Cupid has pulled Santa's sleigh for a very long time right beside Comet in Santa's "lineup" of reindeer. Cupid sometimes requires a little extra hug or grooming, but this reindeer is always ready to pull the load on Christmas eve.
"Well my name is Nicole. I've have been married to Jack for almost 8 years. We have a 6 year old Daughter Angel… (very appropriate for christmas don't you think)..
I love to scrapbook and craft and spend lots of time online shopping and searching for more things that I can make.
We have been owner building our own American barn since September 06 and last year was our first christmas here. I decorated the barn in pink christmas ornaments and actually still have the reddy pinky coloured angels still hanging up.
I collect pink kitchen items (my favourite being my Pink Kitchenaid products).. great for making all of those christmas goodies.
I look forward to helping you with your christmas celebrations."
Welcome to the Reindeer Team, Nicole! We are thrilled to have you *in the harness*. *big hugs*
