I was honoured to work on this travel book for Karen. I was able to live vicariously through her stories and stunning photographs as she traveled South America for a few months. I got to see the people she met, the places she went and the experiences she encountered. To be able to put memories such as these into books for people is truly humbling.

Capture everyday in a book

TweetFirst of all, this is not a sponsored post. I saw the new feature and thought I’d give it a go and I can’t wait to get my book with my random everyday shots. I was not asked, nor paid, nor given anything for free to yap about this. I just tried the new Instagram…

Sharing, chatting and clanging – an interview with a successful entrepreneur

TweetWhile at Blissdom Canada ’10 I had the opportunity to sit and chat with Candace Derickx of Best Tools for Schools. She’s a smart cookie and I’ve admired her since I first “met” her on Twitter. I apologize about the banging, clanging and general state of chaos of the interview site. Candace and I wandered…

The book I was compelled to create

TweetIf you hang around Twitter, you may be aware of Heather‘s story. Her beautiful son, Zackie, slipped out of this world on March 10, 2011. Her blog posts are beautifully written and give us a real sense of who she is and what kind of a boy Zack was. Zack’s daddy, Paul, also wrote a…

TweetDo you have an amazing mom? Want to do something fantastic for her? Want to give her something that in some small way reflects the enormous impact she’s had on your life? Giving her a book, a book made just for her, is about the closest I’ve come – in a tangible form – to…

Lots of deep breaths and a few leaps

Tweet Let’s take a look at where I was this time last year – looking forward to 2010: 2010 is not going to be a year of resolutions for me. (I’ve never been a fan of resolutions anyway, so not having them is really not that much different for me!). This coming year…. which, by…

Woman in Motion!

Tweet*This was posted previously on my now-private personal blog, but wanted to share it here with you. Man in Motion came on the radio while I was driving home with the kids last night, and yes, John Parr spoke to me. Remember the song? From St. Elmo’s Fire? Love it. “Just once in his life…

Tweet*This was posted previously on my now-private personal blog, but wanted to share it here with you. I absolutely love this concept. I just read a blog post by Elizabeth Potts Weinstein of Live Your Truth, and while most of her posts resonate with me, just one just blew me away. I was reading it…

The yo’ books birth story


TweetI had a job up until September 2009. I’d always had a job. Ever since I graduated from Marketing in college. I graduated in April and started in May. I’ve had a full-time job with benefits since 1995, except when I moved to Toronto and had decided to change careers. I always chose when to…

I was born to do this. Literally.

TweetFrom as far back as I can remember my mom always had her camera with her. (And my mom is a big reason why I’m doing this – then and now.) We have pictures of almost everything. Lots of photo albums full of great memories (because we don’t photograph the bad usually, do we?). Lots…
