My kids have been taking art lessons at Laura Daub’s sweet little studio in Britannia Beach, and I have to say, I have loved it. What’s more, they have loved it, and I couldn’t be happier about this whole experience.

I’m not sure if many people know this about me, but I’m a huge paper/design/typography nerd. I don’t know how quite to define this area that makes my heart beat a little faster but perhaps I can describe it this way:

I am a paper snob.

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.
