Hi, My name is Carin Heathcote.  I live in Barrie, Ontario, Canada.  I was born in Durban, South Africa and moved to Canada 20 years ago, when my husband was offered an opportunity to work in Canada.

I am very blessed to have a wonderful husband,  two wonderful grown children and a little grandson, which we adore.  I also have two dogs and five cats (two of which were strays that showed up at my door.)

I have been very fortunate to be a stay at home mom since my children were born. I love being at home to take care of my family and home.

 I have always enjoyed been creative, I also love gardening, cooking, sewing, and decorating my home.

How it all started!

I was introduced to scrapbooking about 15 years ago and have never looked back.  I love everything about the industry and am addicted to everything from card making, scrapbooking, multimedia design, stamping to colouring with copics, pencils and water colour.  I have converted my basement into a Craft Room (my Happy Space).

I have a wonderful group of Scrapbooking friends to share my passion with.  We often go away to crops, retreats and shows.  I also have an Artist Trading card Club at my home every three months where we swap cards and share ideas.

My latest addiction is Heartfelt Creations, which I was introduced to about a year ago when I attended a class taught by Karen Gerber.  Every month I wait in anticipation for the new release. I find it very relaxing making the flowers and creating gorgeous cards with their stunning stamps, dies and paper collections. I have recently started designing Heartfelt Creations cards that are included in release parties at a local scrapbooking shop, Paper Lane  Studios. I am passionate about the Heartfelt creations brand and am eager to use my skills and creativity.

I hope Creations from Carin’s Craft Room inspires you to create beautiful projects.
