Hi! I'm excited that you found me, welcome :) My name's Leigh-Ann and I live in Winnipeg Canada.
I'm a positive-minded girl consumed with loving & sharing discoveries of everyday joy. My blog focus is based on my passion, including Design, Vintage, DIY, Small Business, Pop Culture, Animals, Family, Color Appreciation and I love taking pretty photographs! Want more?

And my longlost Mini Horse, Peanut <3
Learn how I Thrift, Take Photos, Started Design, Paid off 12K of Debt, got my '74 Station Wagon, set-up my Workspace and read about stuff like my Thoughts & Fears of being a Mom someday, my Stubborness, the silly stories I have, my Favorite Food, my kind of Mess... plus, lots of DIY Projects you can make too! I also co-teach a Sewing eCourse for beginners called Home Ec and an online class about starting your own business called Indie Business.
I founded a craft & design company called Freckled Nest in 2006 and now co-own it with the lovely and uber-talented, Kyla Roma!

Freckled Nest has a few departments-- Blog & Shop Design, Teaching & eCourses, Advertising, and Handmade Goods-- plus, we treasure our blogs, community and the opportunity to live a creative, inspired life! We're a small company with big hearts and lots of creativity to share!
