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 host an Artist Trading card Club as well as a Flower making Club at my home where  we get together regularly.  We swap cards, share ideas and inspire each other.  We make flowers out of paper and foamiran then create cards or tags to put them on.

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