Name Photo Collage

Looking for a personal and heartfelt gift idea?  What about a photo collage of letters (from someplace special to you) to make up the recipients name – like these name photo collages for my girls.

I / my girls received the sweetest gift the other week; a friend – and fantastic photographer – gifted my girls with photographs of signs that he had taken from all over town.  Places in our city that we’ve seen or visited so that each letter […]

Hey strangers!

Where have you been?!  It’s been so long since I’ve touched base with you – are you ignoring me?

Kidding – and with my apologies – I’ve been working hard, but certain life problems and projects have interrupted my work flow.

Take these stained glass windows I helped a friend with  back in May – they have been sitting on my photo reel waiting […]

Patio Living

Summer living isn’t just about beaches and barbecues – some of my favourite times are spent right here at home (staycation anyone?) on/in my favourite room of the house – the patio!

My patio.

This outdoor room has always been my favourite place to spend time.  Caesar’s […]
