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 cannot agree more about home gender tests….they told me I was having a boy… so not true 😉 It is a girl 🙂
Yes, I learned that they are not reliable — but impossible to resist! 🙂
haha, no kidding!!! I was asking everyone and even made a poll on my blog (by the way if you want to read it, give me your email (gmail) and I can send you an invite.
It was crazy.. everyone told me I was having a boy (my midwife still thinks it is a boy…)
well, I guess we will find out in ~ 98 days!!!
