Hi and Welcome,
My name is Karoline and this is my little blog about my adventures in Edmonton, the Capital City of Alberta Canada. I am a self proclaimed design, DIY, craft and turn junk into something fabulous enthusiast. I love the goodwill, garage sales (sales in general) and thrift stores and probably will need an intervention at some point but for now I am enjoying the thrill and excitement of finding something somebody didn't want and turning it into something I like or maybe even if I am really lucky into something awesome other people like as well.
My #1 job and obsession is my little girl though. Being a mom has definitively opened up a whole new world for me. Being a first time mom has been challenging and very rewarding at the same time and now that my daughter is a little older - she just turned two - I am finding more and more time to tend to my creative passions which have been neglected for a while.
I have moved to Canada about six year ago. I moved here from Germany and met my husband in Edmonton. We are raising our daughter bi-lingual. I speak German to her and my husband English. I still feel like I am a newcomer and I am trying to stay open to new experiences and things to do in Edmonton. The city has a lot to offer and even though we do have a six-month-long winter with a lot of snow and minus temperatures we also have West Edmonton Mall and other indoor activity options for parents during those winter months.
I work part-time as a receptionist at a retirement community. I love my job. It gives me a great balance to my hectic day as a mom of a two-year-old. I am hoping to return to work full time but I haven't figured out what I want to do yet.
So here you go this is it in a nutshell.
