About

Why smidgebox? Those who know my husband would say that he is the man of a thousand nicknames. Smidgebox is just one of the many he has called me since we met 18 years ago. Somehow, this one stuck in my head!

I started Smidgebox Designs for many reasons, but mainly to fulfill my creative needs + to enable me to stay home to look after my growing family.
I live on the west coast of Canada in beautiful Victoria, where I am lucky to be surrounded by some of the most stunning landscapes in the world. Climb a mountain, roam the beach, hike though a forest, and play in the lush green grass, all in one glorious day.
We spent a year living in France from July 2015, and it changed the way I look at the world. Traveling throughout Europe ignited a fresh spark in me, and further opened my eyes to the beauty of the world…

In May 2017, I will be launching a new creative venture, SHORE + wander. I will combine my passion for photography and hand-lettering, and I can hardly wait to share it with the world.
In the meantime, you can also visit my current little hand-lettering shop,

My mom taught me to sew as a child, and it has been an on-off love affair ever since. My first child was born 12 years ago, and it renewed my interest in the craft. I am totally head-over-heels for today's fabrics and textiles, and love coming up with new ways to showcase the amazing prints + designs. I will currently be offering only custom sewing work, including my popular heirloom custom Smidgey Blankets and my Smidgey Blocks.
I am trained as an architectural draftsperson, and love all aspects of design. Be it photography, hand-lettering, furniture design, paper collage, stationery, painting...I really love it all.
