My favourite colour is purple. I like most colours, except that I'm not too fond of yellow. I'm a teacher, a student, a wife and a step-mom to four young adult-ish kids. My favourite room is my craft room. I like to play with photography, paper, scrapbooking, book and card making. Thanks for checking out my blog!

Our Urban Garden, 2014

Like watching a baby, every day there is something new. Every day there is growth.

This is our Share Garden. It's purpose is to help us engage with our neighbours. People gather over a garden. We've met many neighbours through this garden. Soon, we'll put out the bags so they can help themselves to the harvest.

My pinkie winkie hydrangea.
