I’m Heather Laura Clarke. I’m a writer living in beautiful Nova Scotia, I have a 12-year-old son and a 10-year-old daughter, I married my high school sweetheart, and this is the story of my handmade life.
I have depression and anxiety, and I fight like hell every day to keep them from taking over my life. Creating things helps.
Whether I’m writing novels, decorating a room, busting out my power tools to build furniture, getting muddy in the pottery studio, sewing clothes, or cross-stitching a swear word, I’m all about using my creativity to craft a life I love.
I’ve been writing this blog since 2009, so if you dig deep into the archives, you’ll meet a bright-eyed 25-year-old newlywed who was basically obsessed with having kids, buying a cozy house, and supporting herself full-time with her writing. (Spoiler alert: she got exactly what she wanted.)
I hope and pray that I’m half as cute as she is when I’m pregnant! Though I know I won’t be. I also don’t have a photographer for a husband to help me look that cute … sigh. I’ll just live vicariously through these stunning pics! Thanks for posting these!
You will totally look cute preggo! But I agree, we all need super-talented photographer hubbies to take glamorous pics like this!
