Welcome to GDS Sharon. Great name lol.
Isn't it funny how we always like things that don't happen where we live lol. am in australia and it is sunny here most of the time too and I like rain but even more I love snow which we never get.
You have found the right place to learn and play with your digital supplies. There is heaps of inspiration in the gallery and you could also try joining in some of the challenges.
If you have any questions just ask too as we have many lovely helpful people here.
