Candra Holmes

Port Alberni, BC

I would say I have always been a "Crafty Girl" and discovered paper crafting when my husband and I were given the opportunity to live in Portland, OR for 5 years. We loved our Portland adventure but have happily been back on the west coast of Vancouver Island (BC, Canada) for several years now. We have a very bright, very busy boy and I am glad to say that both my husband and son are very supportive in my creative pursuits and have been known to bring me snacks when I get immersed in a project!
