Well hello there. I'm Monica, and I've finally decided to start a blog. I'll be posting my DIY creations, paintings and prints, antique and estate sale finds, recipes, and other cool things. Maybe even a few tidbits about my life.
A bit about me: When I was about 5 years old, my old friend and I used to draw pictures on lined paper and sell them at the park for $0.50 each. It was the Etsy of my time, and an early testament to my entrepreneurial sprit and my need to just...create. I've always been creative; constantly working on my next project.
10 years ago, I started a home business called The Designer Cookie, where I specialized in cookies, cupcakes, wedding cakes and other goodies. 3 years ago, I decided to quit my Marketing gig and open a retail bakery in Toronto. It was a challenging and rewarding experience, where I learned many things not only about business, but about people, and life.
In one week, my little pink bakery will be closing. I am sad, but ready to move on. This blog, however, is not about my bakery. It's about my need to move forward, to push on, and to keep...creating.
I hope you enjoy what I have to share.
