 Well, it's finally here...Ottawa at Home's October issue. And to my surprise I made the cover!! it makes all of my anxiety and stress about this day so worth while.

In this business, you really pour your heart and soul into every project. And when you finish a job a piece of you is left behind and to be recognized for what I do daily that usually go unrecognized is such an Honour to me. I worked with the very talented editor and chief of Ottawa at Home magazine Mary Taggart...who I like to call Miss Mary because she is such a kindred spirit. And I can not go without saying that everything looks so beautiful because of the incredibly talented photographer Mark Holleron who shot the photo's for both My Designer st Home shoot and the Home Reno shoot of the cottage I designed.

They were both incredible days and an experience I will not soon forget. Thank you to you both for all your kind words and support.....and most of all for thinking I was worth it

In the early spring I took the "Business of Design" seminar given by a very well known Designer who I am proud to say I know Kimberley Seldon. In this seminar we were to make a "Bucket List" of what we would like to accomplish........this was TOP of my list. Thank you Kimberley for all your advice and encouragement.

Below are some pics from the "Ottawa at Home" features. To see the full articles go to
