fb displayYupp that’s me, just trying to enjoy life. Getting uncomfortably close to a “milestone” birthday but as they say, it’s better than the alternative. I have two grown daughters, who are the light of my life, and a Boxer mix dog who delights in making me laugh.

I live in northern Nova Scotia, Canada and have both a full time day job and a parttime evenings-and-weekends job so my crafting time is at a premium and I guard it jealously! Like exercise and getting out in nature, I just don’t feel right if I don’t find some time each week to express my creative thoughts.

I have been scrapbooking for about 6 years now, dabble in cardmaking (especially when I only have time for a ‘quick fix’) and have just recently discovered the joys of mixed media and all that messy, inky goodness!

About 12 years ago, I went through an unpleasant year of changes. It was scary, and difficult, and pushed me so far out of my comfort zone I thought I’d never feel like myself again. And, in a way, I’m not my old self anymore at all, so this blog is about me, my life..after.
