Welcome to my online home! This is a place for me to document my makings. On here, you will find mostly knitting, sewing and other crafty related items.
I live north of Toronto, Canada in the town of Richmond Hill. I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Radley. We are the lucky parents of 3 beautiful children – Ryan, Vanessa and Aaron. I was an Operations Manager for 15 years before I became a stay at home mom.
Transitioning from a 9-5, to a 24 hour, full time mom was not easy. When life got busier and changing diapers became second nature, crafting became my solitude. I did a bit of sewing making garments, toys, bags and quilts for my family. The bulk of everything I made was for them, and seeing their faces brighten at the sight of something new and handmade encourages me to keep going.
I picked up knitting in 2014 and fell in love. It satisfies my need to create wherever I am with minimal tools. It’s relaxing, meditative, therapeutic and addicting. It’s my passion. It’s where I’ve met many like minded souls, and I hope to continue to do so, through this blog.
