About Me

Hi My name is Denise, I live in Ottawa, Canada, I speak English and French, I a mother to three boys and I work full time in the not-for-profit sector. I have two cats, Jasper and Roo.
I like to travel and explore different cultures; music, dance art, food and drinks (wine & scotch). I love cats, the mountains, trees, flowers and the ocean. I have a real preference for the colour blue. I dislike purple. And even though I grumble in February about the winter, I marvel at the change of the seasons here in CANADA. I am an avid paper crafter, scrapbooking, ATCs and card making. I collect designer papers and postcards.

Favorite Crafts

I am an avid paper crafter, scrapbooking and card making. I like to read Paper Crafter and Make Special Cards magazine. I really like these because I like to reproduce great designs. I like to celebrate my family, friends and colleagues with personalized cards. You can see my cards on instagram @613cardcrafter 613 is the area code for Ottawa, Ontario. Itโ€™s the Capital of Canada. I am happy t send a card for whatever reason, but especially to lift people's spirits and recognize my gratitude of friends and family in my life. I have started creating and collecting of ATCs. I am fascinated with all the art, expressions and sentiments you can pack into a 2.5x3.5 space. I am exploring collage and watercolours. I used to do a lot of sewing, but that is a past-time that I will pick up again later. But I still have a stash of fabric that waits silently for me to return.

Favorite Music

I listen to indie music. I like the Killers, Sting, Pink, I listen to a lot of Canadian artist. Canadian Groups; Billy Talent, Blue Rodeo, Great Big Sea, Sam Roberts, Half Moon Run, Tragically Hip, Coeur de pirate, Arkells, Metric.

Closing Words

Spring 2020 - Working on a SWAP and receiving handmade pieces of art has been so comforting to me in these long weeks of social distancing. It makes me happy to be sharing with other crafty people.Take care, be well, and stay strong everyone.

Comment: I love your handmade Maud Lewis card. I saw a Maud Lewis exhibit at McMichael Art Gallery recently. I watched the movie Maudie before going to the exhibit. Her work is uplifting. Despite her very difficult life she seemed to see the world through a beautiful filter. Your handmade postcard was a delight to receive. Thanks D. :)
Response: I picked up a small calendar of her art at the Halifax museum where they have her actual cottage right in the museum. Glad you liked it. Take care.
