    It's that time of year once again to say THANK YOU! As I wrap up the holiday season I can definitely say that this was the BEST season yet! Evergreen is my third full collection and I was so happy that you gave it a chance! I know that many of you have your favourites from True North and Traveller's Series but I am always happy to see people try my new designs.  This year I had countless visitors at my One of a Kind booth that  have followed along and supported me for many years and I wanted to let you know, I see/ hear you and THANK YOU!! If you were one of the FANTASTIC people that came through my One...

    A place to call home

    It's been about three weeks since I stepped in to my new space and I have been slowly opening up to the city. While I do like change, I have to embrace it at my own pace and on my own time.  Now before I continue, I normally share my knitting journey and write about different projects that are going on along with some fun creative side projects that I think of, mostly because I think it is important to 'Know Your Maker' and to see the work/ passion that goes into each project. Starting this blog and sharing my knitting journey has been a great release for me in an area that I never felt strong in (writing). I...

    Road Trip! N+K Adventures

I think I have bored just about every person around me with my sob story of how I don't want to leave, but my time is up and there's nowhere to look but WEST (Calgary to be exact) I couldn't bare the thought of putting Harold on to an air plane so Nick and I decided that the best way to make the final move was a 3 day road trip across the trans Canada highway, N+K Adventures here we go! We both are not new to road tripping but it's our first time heading west and with a pet (Harold). If you want to...

    "The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new" ~SOCRATES   January, a month that for most is used for resolutions and goal setting.  While I don't make resolutions, I do set goals and I also use this month to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. This year I took the time to REALLY soak in the down time because I new I needed to prepare as this year will be full of changes and new adventures. If you follow me on instagram you will know that, yes N+K Adventures is making it official! He asked and I said yes :) While I am totally stoked and excited for...

    My Simple Smile

    Home Stretch! It's Christmas day and I finally feel like I am on top of all my projects. During the fall winter season, I have very little time to respond to emails and conversations on Etsy but that doesn't mean that I don't read each and every one of them. I often get bogged down with show set up, inventory , deliveries...ect.  that when I see photos of your knits, or when you show me your well loved knits from many years ago, or when I read your little notes and messages, it motivates me to keep creating, keep knitting and keep making. I am reminded this holiday season why I started SimpleSmiles so many years ago. There is so much negative in this world, I...
