About me

Hello and welcome to my Blog! I started blogging mainly because I wanted to keep track of all the projects and hand crafted gifts that I have made over the years. Hopefully by sharing my work I can inspire other craft addicts like myself.

Anyways, I live in Edmonton, AB, Canada! I was born in Portugal and immigrated here with my parents when I was two. I have a 10 year daughter, a 13 year son, and a very supportive and loving hubby! When I'm not wearing the mom, wife, cook, cleaning lady, taxi driver, crafter hat... I'm probably wearing my nurse hat. I have been an Oncology Nurse for the last 18 years and truly love it! Nursing is wonderful and it pays the bills but it doesn't satisfy my creative hunger!

Other than being addicted to paper crafting I also love cake decorating, painting, photography and so much more. Anything crafty I'm all over it! I'm always looking for stuff to create... hubby says I like to make work :)

I would describe myself as practical, sensible, careful, loyal, creative, modest and usually positive... always looking for beauty and good in everything.

I do when possible use affiliate links in my blog posts to indicate the products I have used for my project. This helps you shop and in turn gives me a small commission if you purchase directly from clicking on my links. This is what helps keep my blog running, because as you all know crafting is a very expensive hobby! So thank you all in advance for your support!

Please feel free leave me your comments. I would love to hear from you. Also please give credit where credit is due. If you are inspired by any of my creations please link back to this blog! My hope is to inspire you... as many of you have inspired me!



Thanks for stopping by and come back soon,
Ilda
