Happy 2015 !!!

Happy New Year !!  What a year this is going to be .... I can just feel it !!

2014 brought so many exciting times and ALOT of change for our family ...... We truly try to live every day and remember that every adventure is part of our journey.  I will turn 40 in 2015 and I am not sure how I feel about that quite yet .... so I'll get back to you closer to the date ( April ;))

December 30th marked the final day of a 9 year chapter of my life professionally.  I closed the doors to my scrapbooking store on Vancouver Island.  This was a very tough decision for me but one that I know was best for my family.  I've been ready to move forward and try new things and since moving to Calgary and I quickly realized that having a retail store so far away was not how I wanted it to continue ......  

...... having said that, it does NOT mean that I am stepping out of this industry. I absolutely LOVE creating and can't imagine not working with the incredible people I've met over the years ...... Closing the store just means I am heading in a new direction - one that I will let you in on as I make moves forward in the coming weeks and months !!!

I will also keep you up to date on all I have going on with my family and a few other little projects I am working on too ..... I am excited about this year and look forward to keeping in touch with you all here and through facebook, Instagram and Pinterest too !!!

In the meantime, I have lots of inspiration to share with you ..... pieces i've created in the past few months as well as projects I have in the works and will share soon .....

Some of you may have seen this layout recently ..... it is one that I created for Bella Blvd. a few weeks back and shared on their blog ..... Hope it will get you started on all your holiday photos from this Christmas :))

Thanks for stopping by .... Talk soon.


  1. Such a sweet page, your children are beautiful too!

  2. Thanks so much Laura !! Happy New Year ❤️XO

  3. Although I am quite disappointed that your store has closed, it does look like it is time for new beginnings for you and your family, based on what you have shared on your blog. My husband and I moved to Vancouver Island (Sooke) from Calgary in 2006, and we keep our RV up near Qualicum Beach. I will miss being able to pop into your store when I go up island. On the other hand, it will be nice to see what photos you have to share in and around Calgary, as well as whatever crafting projects you are working on. I feel a sense of excitement for you and your family, and wish you all the best in the new year!!
