About Me

Life is short, enjoy the precious moments and remember to capture the memories.

I try to enjoy the ordinary moments that make everyday life extraordinary. I love living in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It's a great city, full of friendly people and loads of things to do.

I love to take photos, in fact I take my camera almost everywhere with me. I take quite a few with my Iphone 4S too...

I am In the midst of the craziness of planning my Wedding here in Ottawa on Friday, August 17th, 2012.. Our Ceremony is set for the Rockcliffe Park Pavillion and our Reception will be held at a lovely restaurant in the Byward Market called the Side Door Contemporary Kitchen and Bar. It should be an amazing event, we're pretty excitted and once it passes, I'm really looking forward to creating with the photos!

I enjoy visiting with friends, going to concerts, sipping coffee and just wandering around the city with my camera. I love listening to music, reading, scrapbooking and playing with my niece & nephew who always make me smile!

My favorite colour is blue. I like pinks and purples too though. I have no food allergies. I enjoy tea and coffee. I love the smell of Vanilla. I like to cook and bake but I'm mostly a beginner in these fields.

I love making muffins for work and cookies for all seasons for my niece and nephew. I am working on Becky Higgin's Project Life this year and am amazed with all the cute things I can use with it.

Things I like - Turtles, butterflies, dragonflies, the beach, the ocean, travel, photography, Winnie-the-Pooh, Hello Kitty, Stickers, Bento Boxes, Sushi, Love, Quotes & Magnets... To name just a few things that make me happy.

Please remember that mail coming from Canada does usually take a little bit longer then some other locations. Please have patience, drop me a note if you have any questions.

Favorite Music

I like just about every kind of music except most Rap... I love a lot of Canadian bands including: Sarah McLachlan, The Tragically Hip, Jann Arden, Blue Rodeo, Jim Cuddy, and Faber Drive to name a few... I really like U2, Melissa Etheridge, ColdPlay, Peter Gabriel, Dave Matthews Band, Paul Oakenfold, DJ Tiesto, Cascada, Live, The Fray, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, and Tim McGraw...

Favorite Books

The Witching Hour by Anne Rice, One by Richard Bach, The Boy Next Door by Meg Cabot, With love from Greg and Lauren by Greg, Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silversteini, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Favorite Movies

When Harry Met Sally, Rounders, Grosse Pointe Blank, High Fidelity, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Run Lola Run, How to Lose A Guy In 10 Days, Finding Nemo, Boys on the Side, Human Traffic, Rent, Chronicles of Narnia, Fever Pitch, The Usual Suspects, Point of No Return, The Professional.

Favorite Crafts

I'm always open to trying new crafts but my favorite ones tend to revolve around memory keeping and my photography. I never really consider myself artistic, just someone who loves to write, paint, take photos & scrapbook.

Favorite Quotes

Live ~ Love ~ Laugh - this is my Mantra.

Just as the caterpillar thought the world was ending it became a butterfly.

Comment: What a neat package of things you sent me-thanks so much! I haven't tried ATCs yet but am looking into them. Do a lot of cards right now. I just joined swap-bot last month and what fun I'm having!
Response: I'm more of a scrapbooker so I hope what I sent will work for cards or atc's, I've only done a few atcs and a handful of cards. I tried to send things I would enjoy too... so glad you liked them!
