I'm a WAHM with lots of different interests. I've been on Squidoo since 2007 and love writing on here. When I'm not squidooing I can be found writing on other sites like Wizzley or Zujava.

I also spend time on Zazzle and have a number of different Zazzle stores. I also spend a bit of time trying to keep up with my many blogs and I'm a sporadic user of twitter.

If you want to check out what I'm up to online I do have a Lou16 page on Facebook that I'd love you to follow.

I have a few online stores as well including my own Chocolate Store, which is handy as I'm a chocoholic!

My other stores are - Lou's 80s Movie Store, Lou's Bath Gift Baskets, Lou's Unique iPhone Cases and The Heart Shaped Birthstone Jewelry Store.

Unique Christmas Tree Ornaments

I like to have some unusual Christmas Tree baubles on my tree to make it more unique. A few years ago I found an All Black Father Christmas to hang on the tree - it looks awesome - bear in mind my hubby's...

  • CookbooksPlus Dec 15, 2010 @ 11:11 pm
    I'm new to squidoo, so BarbRad (Barb's Books) referred me to your lenses as examples of excellence. I have a whole list of topics I plan to create lenses about, but I've yet to begin. I'm studying up first...want to give it some more time before I jump in. May be a couple more weeks, but when I do, I'll be sure to let you know. Anyway, I loved your lenses. Thanks for doing them!
  • lou16 Dec 18, 2010 @ 6:56 am
    I look forward to see what you come up with.

    I have really enjoyed your lenses with Squidoo tips, thank you! A small question- How do I get the picture from AllPosters into the introduction module? I tried with html, but it didn't accept it. Not so good with these things....
  • lou16 Dec 06, 2010 @ 5:13 pm
    I've sent you an email - hopefully it makes sense!
