I grew up in a small town in central Alberta and moved away to go to University right out of high school. I was 17 and as naive and bright eyed as could be. I now live in Edmonton, Alberta with my husband, daughter & our cats. I am thankfully not so naive but still bright eyed and hopeful.
I have been creating & making for as long as I can remember. I’ve dabbled in painting, cross stitching, knitting, beading, crafting and DIYing. These days you will find me playing with paper, scrapbooking and making cards.
In 2009 I quit my “day job” to pursue my creative passions & work for myself. I have been teaching scrapbooking and card making classes at Treasured Memories since then as well as doing scrapbooking work for private clients. I am beyond grateful to Treasured Memories for their unwavering support in me & for giving my work a platform.
This space is where I get to share my life with you. A home for my work & classes, my passions, my ideas as well as my family & our adventures.
I love the mountains, they are my church. I dream of owning land, raising chickens and growing a marvelous garden. I love Disneyland, I would go every. single. year if I could. I love to cook & bake, be outside, plan a party, craft, snuggle, be by myself, make lists, clean, make really big messes and take photos. I love magazines and am addicted to audio books. I love to garden and grow my own food. I love wine and coffee. I love summer but crave the colors of Autumn. I love love.
I want to be inspired. I want to inspire people. I want to make a difference. I want to know I am not alone. I want you to know that you are not alone. I want to be real. I want to create a community, be part of a tribe. I believe in love and kindness and I hope to leave a little light wherever I go.
