My love of creating beautiful mementos for the special people in my life has evolved into this new venture.
Over the years, my background in journalism, public relations, event planning and marketing has always been enhanced by my creative abilities. I was always the one pulled into the boardroom to sew the last minute adjustments to costumes, or to go find the perfect items for media kits or to craft the wonderful gift baskets we would be giving away on air. And I loved doing all of it. I was also always creating in my craft studio at home. I started stamping and scrapbooking before they were even a “thing.” There were no stores, no specialized products — just me, cutting and pasting.
And then I would explore on trips to the U.S. …oh the difference back then between there and here when it came to crafts! And any diehard crafty person will understand now when I say I actually worked here for a company that had me going to Provo, Utah, home of Provo Crafts, which at the time was this amazing craft store that just stopped me in my tracks. We had nothing like it here at home. And it had me trying to figure out how I could get everything I wanted home.
I’ve had a gift basket business, exhibited at and held craft shows in my home, sent custom-designed media kits across Canada and the U.S., planned parties for Beyonce and P. Diddy and even planned weddings. And I’ve loved every minute of it. Now I want to share what I’m doing, what I’m creating, beyond my craft studio.
See something you like, let me know.

Let me help you add my distinctive flair to your everyday life and special occasions.
