Hi!
Welcome to Blue Specks in My Coffee - a shop where you’ll find cheerful, useful handmade items, things to make you smile, and to bring joy to your life.
Since I was old enough to walk and talk I’ve always loved creating. Over the years I’ve tried and enjoyed everything from embroidery, knitting, quilting, and weaving to painting, woodworking, and more. I enjoy coming up with solutions to everyday needs. I love the way the colors and textures come together in a project to make something new. To look at something and see its potential, to say what can I make from this? -- what can it be? – that is the joy of creativity.

The story behind the name
I know - Blue Specks in My Coffee doesn’t exactly conjure up a vision of a wood art shop. Here’s why I chose the name.
I’ve always supported and encouraged creativity in others, especially in my children…

The story behind the name
I know - Blue Specks in My Coffee doesn’t exactly conjure up a vision of a wood art shop. Here’s why I chose the name.
I’ve always supported and encouraged creativity in others, especially in my children. One day I came home from work and I had a friend drop by. I offered her a cup of coffee and was ready to sit down and relax for a while. I then noticed that there were blue specks in my coffee. I washed out the cup and tried again – with the same result. I asked “Does anyone know anything about this?” and my daughter who was in the 4th grade at the time said straight out, “I was in the middle of making colored candles and decided that I wanted to make some coffee scented candles as well. I guess I got some of the color in your coffee, sorry”
Since that time “blue specks in my coffee” has come to represent for me unfettered, fearless creativity and the joy of trying something new unafraid. I promised myself that one day I would write a book about creativity but in the mean while I decided that it was a pretty fitting name for a business that was a family endeavour of creativity and imagination.
