i'm lace!

I'm a dreamer. I'm a risk-taker. If I don't have a cup of coffee in my hand it's probably because I am asleep. I have never met a bag of chips I didn't like. I'm a big-hearted extrovert and I live for making you laugh, but I also love nothing more than curling up on my couch for a Netflix marathon and going to bed at 8:30 on a Saturday night. I don't laugh, I cackle, and sometimes I talk so fast that I forget to come up for air. 

But most of all I am a maker, and I wake up every day with the sole purpose of creating beautiful things. Some days it's metal and stone and fire, and other days it's fragrant blooms and fresh foliage - but no matter what, it is always in the pursuit of pretty and it's always meant to make you smile. 

If you need me you can find me at the bench in my brick & mortar in Victoria's historic Chinatown district. But if I'm not there, I am probably hiding away at my favourite local coffee spots, exploring in the woods or on the beach, or sweating buckets in a spin class. 

I'm a recent transplant to Vancouver Island after spending my whole life in Calgary, Alberta. While there are days that I miss my family and the mountains, this beautiful town by the sea is definitely where I belong.
