Hi, my name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia which is located on the East Coast of Canada with my wonderful husband Miles our cat Squeaker. We have one 24 year old son Kyle who is in the Royal Canadian Navy and has recently left the nest and we are still adjusting to being empty nesters. I have worked full time outside of the home in the Finance and Investment industry with the same employer since I graduated from University some time ago LOL! I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some form for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating dimensional projects from paper with particular emphasis on 3D art or altered art. If I had to pick one particular style that I am drawn to, it would be shabby elegant vintage. Winters here in Nova Scotia tend to be long and cold so I spend a lot of time in my happy place aka my craft room; however in the Summer, we love spending time at our cottage on the lake enjoying all that nature has to offer.
