About

I live in Ontario Canada with my amazing husband and two crazy delightful wonderful kids where I am always creating something! Lately, when I'm not sewing small puppets or dreaming up adventures for my children and I, I'm creating new gluten free recipes to feed my son. We love cloud gazing and picnics under blanket forts and making great big beautiful messes. :) A good day for me is one where I can walk in the woods, have my bare feet in the grass, paint on my fingers and talk with good friends by fire light.

I love to meet others who love to create – and especially those who long to make beautiful space for their children to be creative, have adventures, make some mess and noise and learn to make beautiful things themselves.

If you don’t mind fairytales, there is a strange little movie that starred Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan called Joe Vs. The Volcano. It’s often on cable tv on Saturday afternoons when they need something to fill air time. At least, that’s where I first discovered it! It’s a little bit ridiculous, romantic, spiritual, lighthearted and deep at the same time. It is in truth about a man who sets off to find his soul, and discovers something far greater. It involves a shipwreck, volcano, orange soda and some very tenacious luggage. Anyway, there is a quote in the movie that has always stuck with me…

“My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.”

If you ask me who I am, I will tell you it’s hard – but I want to be one of the ones who stays awake. My life is about trying to see the beauty in God's world, understand my identity as His child and learn to love, to create and to stay wide awake.
