Canadian living in Perth, Western Australia. I adore the beauty of a creative imagination, live to make memories, respect our planet, affectionately worship food and have a thing for travel, yoga, chocolate, wine and crafty designs….oh and I love dead people! Seriously.
Introduction
I share my love struck life passions, our travels, my yoga journey with a twist of my handmade felt & button designs on my blog – www.threaddiaries.com

    Blogger, Researcher, Designer, 2010 - present
    I originally started the Thread Diaries blog as it gave me an outlet to share my dear friend’s transplant story and to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis and Organ Donations. To boot, sharing our creative journey of felt & button designs together also served as a beautiful distraction from the frightening reality of her disease . My site has since taken a different direction. Ms. Jaime received her double lung transplant – yeah!, Double C (my partner) & I moved to Perth, Western Australia from Ontario, Canada and I found myself still wanting to share my life. I’ve introduced more of my love struck life passions, our travels, my yoga journey and yummy eats with a twist of my boutique handmade felt & button designs. Family History Researcher - I Love Dead People (a subsidiary of Thread Diaries.com) I love dead people. Really I do. Those of us who have been bitten by the family history bug know just how much fun it can be to discover the family members who came before us. Have you ever wondered about your ancestors? Who they were? What their names were? Where they lived? The occupations they held? Without our ancestor’s courage and determination we would not be where we are today. I love to share my passion for family history with others and help people discover their family tree.
