about me

My name is Terri and I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I’m a designer with formal training in interior design. That training has filtered through all the creative endeavors of my life. My interests include design, printmaking, textile printing, sewing, quilting, baking, cooking, photography, yoga, reading, blogging, mosaic tile work, travel and practically anything artistic. I am happy when totally immersed in a creative project, and happiest when I bring a project to completion. I love learning new techniques and creating things. There are never enough hours in the day!

This blog is my online journal, keeping track of what I’m doing, where I’m travelling, sometimes what I’m eating. I hope to inspire you with my creativity and travel. Please feel free to leave a comment and make my day! If you have any questions, just email me at timetobeinspired at gmail dot com.

  15. I think your blog is great! And being a fellow “unfocused creator” I love seeing all you do. Give yourself a pat on the back for actually finishing things. I have many unfinished, even some un-started, projects. Definitely not enough hours in the day! I think that is why I love photography so much. Fast, easy, not a lot of set-up, no clean-up, can’t burn yourself, no toxic fumes, not cluttery, very flexible, not tedious, and except for the camera and what-not, cheap. Cheers!!

    1. Thanks – but don’t kid yourself if you don’t think I haven’t got tons of unfinished and unstarted projects as well. I agree that photography is simple compared to other activities, and it’s great recording all the other stuff too!

  19. Nice meeting you through the ether Terri! I appreciate your statement: “My creative interests are so diverse that I feel unfocused.” I have the same thing going on with my photographic art, I love to film so many things that sparks creativity! My niche is equine photography and you can see my portfolio at glennweisselphotography.com. You will also notice the variety of photos under Fine Art. It just keeps growing! 😉
