This is a family catering affair right here in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia. This business avenue was explored after the addition of children to our family, as an escape from the hectic life of shift work. It has proven to be a successful venture with many happy customers. My mom and sister are my right hand men (ok, I guess one would have to be the left, but who can choose!). Our dishes are as appealing to the eye they are to the taste, and we pride ourselves on styling your buffet or hor d’oeuvres table to suit your occasion and venue.

Fun Things About Me

  1. I’m 32, but recently when someone asked how old I was and I answered they said ‘oh wow, really I thought you were older! I just mean you’re so mature” does that mean I’m old for my age, or ugly for my age? Hummm…
  2. I’m co-owner of a full service restaurant and music venue, The Union Street. See it here.
  3. I have an education in Interior Decorating, and Animal Science- totally related eh?
  4. I grew up on a large hog farm, plus we had some horses, cattle, rabbits…
  5. Flipping a house is #1 on my bucket list.
  6. I’ve taught myself everything crafty I know, with the exception of knitting (Thanks Aunt Shirley).
  7. I’m a wanna-be exerciser but can’t seem to make it a daily thing.
  8. When being crafty I like to make one of something and move on. I hate making things over and over. Learn it and leave it.  That’s why selling my projects doesn’t work.
  9. If I could have any job (without having to go back to school) I would be a home-ec teacher.
  10. Navy blue is my favourite color.
  11. I love antique, thrift, flea-market and Frenchy shopping.

I LOVE the feeling of wowing people with something I have made or whipped up in the kitchen. I look forward to sharing my love and passion of crafts with you! I hope you’ll become a Fynes Follower!
