About Juno


Main Points

I am Irish, living about 10 miles from Dublin city centre. I have the privilege to be mother to 3 extraordinary children, and the very great honour to be one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

My online friends call me Juno.

With a background  in Graphic Design and Desktop Publishing, when I wanted to put together a unique and special gift album for my parents’ Golden Wedding Anniversary, I discovered  Digital Scrapbooking and fell upon it with zest. Self-taught in Photoshop, I am constantly learning new aspects to digital design.





I share my home with a little gray feline with an Empress Complex. This is NOT her, but may as well be – she sits just like this in the bathroom sink waiting to be provided with a drink. Disconcerting to unsuspecting guests, as you can imagine…Couldn’t believe it when I came across this picture of another cat who obviously enjoys running water, too!

    Juno, I am so excited to find your site. I am studing to become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. I live in Florida so nice to find a Witness in my Digital scrapbooking search. I look forward to talking with you again. Thanks Jackie

    Hi Juno,

    my name is Tina…I found you about a comment at digifree 🙂 You’ve asked about a problem with the comments from digifree. I also use worpress and I’ve the same problem. Did you found a solution for this? I deaktivated my anti-spam plugin but that seems not to be the problem 😦 Could you please let me know if you have a solution?

    Greetings from Germany

      Hi Tina,
      Unfortunately, I never received a reply from Digifree or from the Forum.

      Hi Glennie.
      How are you getting on with your design plans?

    Hi Juno
    We also had a cat who sat in the bath when I was bathing the children…many moons ago. They now have children of their own!

    Dear Juno,
    I am soooooo surprised and happy to see, you are my sister!
    I know I found your blog sometimes on craft cave, but never read your “About Juno”.
    Today I saw the pictures about Jesus and thought “wow, I know these pictures!”

    Now I am so very happy to find you, because we have something in common: I love cats, vintage designs and – I am also ill with M.E. !
    Because of this illness I can not work and started as a scrap-designer a few weeks ago. But it is hard, because I have no background in graphic design or so on. I have to learn everything by myself 🙂

    Dear Juno, if you like to have more contact and talk a bit about scrapbooking and M.E. (in Germany we use the name CFS), so you could write me an email.

    Best wishes!

    • December 6, 2010 12:52 am

      So clever to recognize the pictures! I will email you again soon, dear Minoush.

    Hey Sister Juno

    I just read your About Juno and i’m very glad that you are a Witness too. I got on to the website just to check what is said about Nisan 14, that’s how i for your website. By the way i’m in South Africa, enjoy the memorial service and all you brothers and sisters around the world. See you in the New World.

      It is so lovely to meet sisters this way! Thanks for dropping by. Looking forward to meeting you.

    I absolutely LOVE your charming style. You project true art rather than a quick cute little something. Your thought and time is reflected in your work. Keep up the good work. Thank you.

    • December 6, 2010 12:40 am

      What a beautiful compliment. Thank you, Kindred Spirit. I really appreciate your kind words.

    I have been a Jehovah’s Witness for 28 years, I have lived on the Isle of Wight for 24 years I originally came from Leicester. I had a very bad road accident which makes it very painful to walk hence that is one of the reasons I got into scrapbooking and cardmaking. It makes it much easier to do when I can get ideas and free scraps from generous people like you.

    • May 18, 2011 8:31 am

      Hello my dear sister! I’m so sorry to hear about your accident and glad I can help a little with some craft-distraction. Feel free to download and print any of the cards at Cards by Carol if you would like to share some encouragement with others as well. (Acts 20:35) Stay strong and joyful in Jehovah’s holy spirit. We are so close to the end of the last days, soon you’ll be dancing!

    Hi carol

    I have just opening for the first time your scrapbooking website and I have seen with surprise your proposition for study the Bible. I’m a sister from the North of France and I am very happy to see you take all opportunities to preach the good new .

    Many people practise scrapbooking and many will see your message.

    Congratulations for your faith. I am happy to see than everywhere my sisters and brothers do their best to follow the Jesus’ example.

    Thanks also for your freebies.

    Sorry for my english ….. I’am not fluent in English

    With my brotherly love


    • July 29, 2011 10:51 am

      Hi Patricia
      I’m delighted to hear from you! And your English is very good – I’m learning a little Spanish at the moment and would be delighted to be able to communicate as well as you in another language.

        July 29, 2011 7:22 pm

        My dear sister

        Thanks for your compliment but I have still much progress to do to speak english fluently but I don’t give up because I think that maybe a day Jehovah will use me to testify in English in our terrotary. You also don’t give up learning Spanish.

        Today we have our first day of convention. We are 8000 sisters and brothers . The program was very encouraging and well suited to the times we live. Have you had your convention ? I thought of you and my daughter because a part of program listing the things that no longer exist in the Kingdom of God and the disease is among them. Soon you will not have to suffer from ME, no pain , no morning where you can’t get up.

        Courage my sister . My brotherly love is with you and Jehovah will bless you .

      • July 29, 2011 9:22 pm

        I think English must be a very difficult language to learn. Well done for your high goals, Patricia. The most wonderful thing to use a new language for is to teach the good news and to help others to have a close relationship with our loving God, Jehovah. I too hope to learn enough Spanish to be able to do this. Although I may rely also on clever things like Google translation bots as well! When I’ve fully worked out how to use them, I’ll email you and share what I’ve learned 🙂
        I hope to attend part of the convention this weekend and part of it next weekend. Everyone is saying how encouraging it is to be there so I’m looking forward to it immensely. I’ll email you again when I’ve recovered!

    Thank you for replying you must be so busy, my dear friend and Sister of 25 years fell asleep in death recently, I was able to make a lovely bereavement card using one of the papers & an embellishment from one of your free kits it turned out really well. I think the flower was a Magnolia I use this flower frequently on cards to my family. Warm Christian love to you as ever Diane

    • April 2, 2012 4:34 pm

      Dear Diane, I was so sorry to hear of your friend’s death, and again I apologise for not contacting you before now. I’m delighted you were able to use some of my designs. Looking forward to talking more after the Memorial – I’ll be able to email you at more length then.

  15. April 5, 2012 2:43 pm

    Hi Carol, my mom introduced your blog to me and I was very surprised but also happy to see there ARE sisters who like to scrapbook too. LOL I don’t scrap digitally that much, (my mum does, you should really check out my blog where you can see the kalender she made for me,) but I scrap with ‘real’ papers and love doing so but love being one of Jehovah’s witnesses more! Hope many will attend tonights Memorial and wish you all the best and Jehovah’s blessings!

    • July 10, 2012 3:09 pm

      Hi Wendy. Thanks for adding a link your blog, it’s lovely! The Memorial is past and now our Convention is next weekend! Where is the time going? It’s so good to hear how happy you are serving Jehovah, “the happy God”. 1 Timothy 1:11

  16. May 28, 2012 2:33 am

    Hi, Juno, I love your website, it’s so nice to find a fellow Witness crafter who really lives up to the scripture, “You received free, give free”. I have been a baptized Witness for 3 years, but I was studying for YEARS before that. signed up as a follower, Much Christian love, Sister Ann Stutchbury, Southampton-Woolston Congregation.

    • July 10, 2012 2:52 pm

      Hello, my sister! I’m glad you found me 🙂

  17. May 27, 2014 8:05 pm

    Hi Juno,

    I am so thrilled to find your website and that you are promoting Jehovah and his word. You are a fellow sister in two of the things I love most, Jehovah’s organization and scrapbooking. I have always wanted to travel to Ireland and hopefully my husband and I will be able to start traveling abroad soon. We live in Texas and would love to see more of the world. If not now, in Paradise. Hope to have the opportunity to meet you some day.


    • June 24, 2014 7:22 pm

      Hi sister Peggy ❤ How lovely to meet you here. Maybe we'll get to meet and then scrapbook about it 🙂

    Dear Carol

    Just before finding you, I was just thinking whether I should be perusing the scriptures rather than looking for digi-kits, as I’ve been scrappin’ on and off for quite sometime now. So, finding out that you and several of your followers are Witnesses flabbergasted me! I honestly think Jehovah was behind it, as never have I seen any digi-scrapping sites like yours before.

    This Sunday it will be 11 weeks since I plucked up courage and walked into Paignton’s Kingdom Hall, their welcome overwhelmed me. I really look forward to their meetings and feel so much better within myself. I chat to
    Jehovah all the time now, so much so other people probably think I’ve gone
    off me trolley!

    It’s my 8th Bible study today with my good friend Jemimah, but I may not be going as I’ve had a tummy bug for several days. So, probably have a
    good bible study session at home… with Jehovah! Just like I did on Sunday

    Certainly be following your blogsite (as well as of course.)
    Much love and Jehovah’s blessing to you and yours
    Sally xx

    • July 1, 2014 2:47 pm

      Hi Sally, hello and welcome dear sister!
      I’m delighted to hear that you are really enjoying your study. There’s nothing quite like it, is there? Knowledge and understanding of the scriptures, a closer relationship with Jehovah, our wonderful Creator, and the spiritual peace and joy that it brings. No wonder Jesus said, “HAPPY are those conscious of their spiritual need.” Matthew 5:3.
      Paignton – is that in the UK? I’m thinking yes. Something about your phrase, “off me trolley” has an English and not American ring to it 🙂
      Sorry to hear you’re not too well at the moment. You could always consider a short Bible Study over the phone, or using the Internet? (If you feel up to it!)
      That’s what I do when studying with my students, I use Skype and Gmail Chat/Hangout. I was working towards my goal of being a regular pioneer when I became ill, so now I use the resources I have here at home to share my love for Jehovah, and to pass on the priceless knowledge that others so kindly shared with me.
      Get well soon! And please pass on my love to my sister Jemimah ❤

    fyi Paignton is in Devon, England. kind regards Sister Ann Stutchbury, Woolston congregation Southampton, England

      Hi Ann, my sister. Thanks for that! Lovely to hear from you.

  20. July 14, 2014 4:27 pm

    Hi Carol, I hope you are doing well.

    • July 15, 2014 8:25 pm
