Let's Make Some Noise!
So here I am stepping outside my comfort zone lol, anyone who knows me will tell you that I typically do not have a problem doing that. This, however is a wee bit different because I will probably share more of myself than what I am accustomed to.
So, I was born and raised in Belleville,ON.
Like everyone else I was eager to leave and create a world of my own. After highschool I headed west to Calgary with friends. Why? Seemed like a good idea at the time and I was following my friends. That was the last time in my life that I ever followed anyone. Long story short I married my highschool sweetheart and 15 years later we were divorcing and I was starting over again, yes in Belleville,ON
The only difference was that I was starting over as a single parent. This was a time of my life that I thought my whole world had come to an end but little did I know that it was just beginning. Something happens to you when your so busy trying to please others that you somehow get lost and forget who you are! This time, I was determined to find out exactly who I was and where I wanted to go. I think that I have always been an old soul and wanted to give myself the time to get to know me instead of running off into the wild world of the newly separated! Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy my time being single as does anyone who suddenly finds themselves in a new situation but I did I take a step back and gave myself the time to really understand who I was all while trying to raise my son who was only 3 when his dad and I divorced.
Moving forward 7 years and I am now married to my biggest fan, business partner and love of my life. Jason has been my biggest supporter, always cheering me on and keeping my feet planted firmly in one place. Sometimes my creative spirit can get the very best of me lol. Let's just say that he knows me well and helps me to put everything into perspective and has been doing so for 26 years.
Once I graduated from my decorating course through QC Design School in 2007, Special Effects Decorating was born. Today, we are located in our 1850's century home in Brighton,ON. Here we have created a Lifestyle Boutique. We seek to inspire, guide and motivate our clients to find their voice and enjoy the experience.
Our hope is that you will follow along and enjoy the ride while we explore and share our wisdom, ideas, and creative pursuits in food, travel, design and the hiccups that go along with running your own business. As we come to the end of 2019 we are eager and full of hope for the future. New ideas, experiences and lots of exciting plans that we cannot wait to share with you as we go. So for now, from our family to yours, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year! See you in 2020!!
