Our big wooly egg

Posted by andrea tomkins in: - Ottawa for kids|Easy ways to make kids happy|Publishing/writing/career stuff

My intention was to create a big wooly Easter egg; an AVIAN PINATA of Fine Nesting Materials for our feathered friends. Sadly, it didn’t turn out looking very Eastery or even very egg-shaped. No matter, because the birds have been at it already. See!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (17) and Sarah (15). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
