The Flametamer wants to be your friend

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: - Mail art

I had this idea for an ATC background for awhile now. And then I got thinking about a friend for Waterboy… and this is who came of it. :) There are two available if someone wants a trade. Share the post “The Flametamer wants to be your friend” FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestLinkedInE-mailReddit

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 (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. 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.

If you'd like to contact me, please use this form. If you're so inclined, you can read more about me here. Thank you for visiting!
