About Me

Welcome to my blog about my creative pursuits. I’ve been designing with you in mind since 1999 and have taken my crafting online since 2016.  I offer designs, techniques and inspiration for your own handmade creations with a view to beautiful designs made in minimal time.

Consider me your one stop online shop for all things Stampin’ Up!  My 24-7 shop is full of on-trend and high quality products from current Stampin’ Up! catalogues.

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Central Alberta I get to be creative every day! I blog regularly and have online and in-person creative classes to keep you crafting, even when your life gets busy!

During my career, I worked in a high-paced environment in business and accounting. I have served the public in education, municipal government, as well as private industry.  However I am really a “creative accountant” since I have a passion for all things handmade: beautiful cards, calligraphy, jewelry and other art.  Join me as I share this passion with you!
