Once Upon a Time….





   Once upon a time in a far away land, okay, not that far. Rather, in a land called, Lynden, Ontario… & then in a land called Leduc, Alberta, there lived a under-tall, but rather 'cute' girl….Hee,hee.. We will call her 'Sarah' for the sake of her 'privacy'.Hmm… Sarah's family consisted of a proper British Mum, a crazy & loving Ukrainian Dad, and younger TWIN brothers that got into everything…ALL THE TIME.

Now, Sarah loved her family dearly, especially her Dad because wherever they lived ….. MAGIC followed!le mason packaging2

It didn't didn't matter if the house was BIG or SMALL……. Sarah ALWAYS knew that the house was full of LOVE, LAUGHTER, FREINDSHIP…….. and the odd animal!!!


Yup, when it was stormy, Sarah's Dad would bring the animals inside to tuck her in!  How cool is that!!!butterfly 1

Her dad also taught her to ALWAYS         {

  5. Very Cool Susan. I love the new house stamp and my daughter Marilee loves the butterfly. I believe in Magic too because I see it each and every day, in Marilee's eyes and her smile, in the sun rises or settings, in rainbows, in my son's laugh... it's everywhere! Congrats again on this exciting adventure!

  6. Love the new stamps!!! I so believe!! There is wonderful things that take place everyday. We need to look at the little things and don't try to seek big things that may not happen everyday.

  7. Even though there was a peek at Washi stamps, the papers are all new to me. This girl came from London, Ontario to Edmonton, Alberta almost six years ago. She would love to see more of your stuff, like in her mailbox. That would be magic. ;)

  8. Magic is all around us, like Marylou said... in my son's eyes, in the rainbows, the clouds, the birds etc... my parents also taught me that... and still do (helps that my Dad is a professional magician! :o) I love your stamps and your paper line... very unique! Thanks for the opportunity to party with you!

  9. Congratulatons on making your dreams come true. That alone is your magic which you share with the rest of us. I love your "Cluck Cluck Motel" pic. I grew up with all sorts of animals, but none allowed inside. I love your house stamp and it's new to me. Magic surrounds our lives in what we do and see and it's enhanced by the little ones in our lives who remind us not to forget the magic that is around us. Thanks for sharing with us

  10. Congratulations and best wishes on creating all your own magic! :)
