I recently had to create a biography about myself.  Writing your biography isn't exactly easy. But I wrote a short little blip and thought I'd share it with you guys! 
P.S.  I finished up my inventory for The Art of Home and have taken it down to the store.  Go check it out, it looks like this Saturday is going to be a nice one!  They are open Tuesday - Saturday, 10-5.  Once I get some more information, I will share it :)

I attended Canadore College where I studied Ecotourism.  It was this program I would have to say I developed my love for the environment.  I grew up camping and spending a lot of time with my family of five.  Growing up, I loved spending my time outdoors.  After Canadore, I studied another course relating to the environmental field and through that I developed an even deeper love and understanding of the environment.

Everything I create has something to do with the environment. It would have to be my biggest inspiration; the colours and textures are so unique that you can't help but fall in love with what it has to offer.  I am inspired by the love that I have in my life from everyone close to me.

This has been a long time in the works. I've been sewing since I was a little girl. Even before I was able to sew I was designing; stapling elastic to fabric to make Barbie clothes.  My other source of inspiration is my Mom.  I followed her around while she taught sewing lessons.  I thank her for introducing me to a sewing machine at such a young age. 

HASinspiration is about being inspired by the things in your life. I have many things that inspire me to create and more importantly, do something I love.  I love trees, the sunshine and the feeling of grass under my feet.  I love going to the lake and spending a day in the canoe.  I come back completely inspired.

I don’t use patterns.  No two designs are alike so know that when you purchase something, it is 100% unique.

Thanks everyone <3

On a day like today, I'm not quite sure how to feel.

I thought I'd take some time to sit down and blog.  I seem to be having a rather overwhelming amount of success come my way in the past few months. I landed a great job, I moved out, I bought a car and I started doing exactly what I love to do. I have numerous people to thank for that.  There is one specific person I would like to dedicate my success too.  Considering what today is, I thought this seemed appropriate. 

Happy Father's Day, pops.  You are one missed man!! I dedicate all my new found happiness and success to you.  I know you would be proud of me.

So to all my friends, followers and to everyone else, I hope that you have an amazing Father's Day.  Don't take it for granted. For those of you that use music to express how you feel, check out this tune:

Oh, and Dad, thanks for this one:

Big Announcement!!!!

It had never really crossed my mind to expand my business.  I had never thought about selling my stuff in a store.  But, when I received an email from someone wanting to sell my stuff, I couldn't say no.  It was such a compliment.  I am so very excited to annouce:






For those of you who haven't heard of The Art of Home, it is situated in Downtown Galt, just steps up from Cafe 13.  It is a quaint little store, featuring local handmade artisians, with items to decorate your home.  All with a vintage, handmade feel.   I'm almost reluctant to be apart of this store, the items are beautiful and I am going to be spending quite a bit there, I already know!   I'm so excited to announce this to everyone.  I don't have the exact address right now, so stay tuned.  I will let everyone know when it will be available!

On that note, I should probably get to work!! Thank you all so much for your support! This is truly a dream come true for me. Hope you can all get to get check it out.
