A Cloudy Day at the Movies with the girls

We love to do things as a family, but our schedule is quite busy. What this means is sometimes, it does not permit us to do things as a “complete” family.

How My Kids Helped Brand Me

I have been doing freelance graphic design for many years. Even while working at Canada’s largest community newspaper, I was designing marketing campaigns for many of my own clients.
