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. You can see my cards on instagram @613cardcrafter 613 is the area code for Ottawa, Ontario. It’s the Capital of Canada. I am happy to send a card for whatever reason, but especially to lift people's spirits and recognize my gratitude of friends and family in my life.

Favorite Crafts

I am an avid paper crafter; ATCs, junk journals, collage, scrapbooks and handmade postcards and cards. I started by doing scrapbooks for my boys, trips and family events. I collect designer papers, way to many. I really should use them up before buying more. I collect odd bits of paper to create junk journals. I like to create handmade postcards and send them out. I like to receive any kinds of PC, naked with a note. 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 create cards to celebrate my family, friends and colleagues with personalized cards. I am a bit obsessed with creating and collecting ATCs. I am fascinated with all the art, expressions and sentiments you can pack into a 2.5x3.5 space. I am captivated with the ATCs I receive as they are so different and wonderful.

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, and a lot of artists from the 80s and 90s. I listen to a lot of Canadian artist. Canadian Groups; Billy Talent, Blue Rodeo, Great Big Sea, Sam Roberts, Bahamas, Kathleen Edwards, 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.

Nota: I promise to give prompt ratings to all whom I receive from. Please contact if you have not received a swap. Sometimes mail traveling across the borders takes longer.

Comment: Wow, your weather must be so much better than ours. We had our deck cleared off at least a month ago. You've inspired me to get into my pantry - I lug groceries down there and they stay on the floor in the store bags. One week to go and then we get a break (if we want one, that is - with Xmas coming, we'll probably just prioritize). Thanks for sticking with me on our challenge!
Response: Thanks for the support - BTW you were my 100th rating of 5!

Comment: Your pantry looks great!! My mom's pantry is a wormhold - some of her cans were from 2013 last time she cleaned it out, it's like a game now to see what the oldest thing is now! 😋 Great job this week, and good luck with your watercolours and crafting room organization!! Keep at it!! 😁
Response: Thanks again for the encouragement.

Comment: Oh wow - I'm swooning over your collection!! I also have a terrible habit of buying new art supplies with no idea how to use them, luckily I haven't ventured into copic markers yet - those seem like a very deep rabbit hole to fall down. Great work this week!

Comment: I'm much the same as you - a collector of things I don't even use (pens, paints, etc). Copic pens in a dollar store? Which one? Yup, kinda like a squirrel, haha.

Comment: Thank you for continuing to update us on your progress! Sometimes it is such a daunting task when it comes to stuff in boxes I know. I too would reccomend another set of shelves or paring down the supplies you have....but who even wants to pare things down...we crafters need to keep all the things right?! I tried to when I moved but I don't know how successful that was haha! Good luck with this next week :)
Response: Thanks for the recommendation!

Comment: Can I just say that I felt like I found a kindred spirit when I saw all your various Amazon boxes! I love your bookcase setup and you got a lot done! I also struggle with papers and supplies, so I totally sympathize. Take Care :)
