Shay-Nuh. That’s me. A 49 year old who is a closet writer and would like to be famous someday for writing books. To make money I work nights as an RN. I would much rather win the lottery. I like to draw and read, plan kids’ parties, make scrapbooks, paper stuff and jewellery and sit at the beach, listening to the waves. I like history, genealogy, photography, cooking and hiking. I regularly ride my bike to work- slowly!! We have 3 dogs. I am a Pink Hatter and Sea Cadet volunteer. My hubby and I found a couple new hobbies: geocaching and re-finishing furniture. I spend far too much time on the computer!! I’m organized and neat. And don’t like talking about myself.
I have one 20 year old daughter who graduated from High School with Honours in June of 2012 but went back for an extra year!! 12B! At high school, she was a Prefect, the Yearbook Editor, a JuMP Mentor, in the choir and the Art Club. Now she is now in her 3rd year of University!! It is weird not having her around. She is a great girl who is growing into a wonderful, confident young woman. I am so proud of her. She is involved in Sea Cadets and Girl Guides. She likes to sing and dance, make jewellery, write songs and take selfies!!!

I like journals- smash/junk -and anything that can be put in them-especially travel themed and vintage things- vintage ephemera, old maps, travel stubs, old documents, vintage postcards. I like decorated envelopes, anything with dragonflies or unicorns on it. I am just starting to do ATC so we shall see how that turns out. I make jewellery, key chains and purse charms with little silver charms! I love pretty scrapbook papers- mostly vintage style, not so much flowers. I make cards so I like stickers or anything that I can add to them. I am a 'less is more' person for most things!
