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.
