About Me

Hi! I'm Laurel, a 35 y/o living in Calgary, AB Canada. I'm married and mother of one, my son was born Sept 15, 2019 so I'm still figuring out this whole being a mom thing!

I'm an avid gardener, love reading (mostly fantasy and sci-fi), all kinds of crafts and woodworking. We have two dogs and a ton of houseplants!

I consider myself a creative person, enjoying spending time in nature and drinking coffee or tea.

Random Facts About Me

  • My husband and I incorporated Doctor Who items into our wedding. Our front door is a TARDIS
  • I participate in the PopSugar reading challenge every year as I'm hoping to broaden my reading genres.
  • I have 1,500sq feet of raised beds total, as well as a green house, and grow primarily vegetables. I love to grow unusual varieties.
  • My favourite colour is teal followed by pink
  • I've built four Little Free Libraries; one for our old house, one for our new house, one for a playground and one for my mom's house.
  • I'm learning to crochet
  • My favourite foods are watermelon, dim sum and chocolate
  • I'm allergic to hazelnuts
  • I read on average 65 books a year, add me on GoodReads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/23489726-laurel-malialis)
  • I love board games

Favourite Crafts

I love working with paper to make cards, bookmarks, interactive toys, etc. I like to combine graphic design with papercraft to make unique items.

I also like making items from garden objects like gourds, dried flowers, seeds, grasses, pinecones, etc.

I have a small space setup in our garage for woodworking, I have designed and built four little free libraries, all my raised beds, flower planters, a table, dog treat box, some routed signs for our home and garden, a huge squash arch... haha I tend to make practical wood items more than decorative but I do hope to learn more about woodworking. I've taken a few classes but still consider myself a novice.

Wishlist Items

Honestly I'd love anything you send me, but if you want specific ideas:

  • I love things I can put in my little free library to share with the community. Stuff like books, bookmarks (handmade or bought are great), reading buddies (stuffed animals kids read to), stickers. Or decor for my library such as window clings, outdoor lights, hanging ornaments, etc.
  • Teas or coffee
  • Stationary and items for paper crafting
  • Craft supplies (yarn, stamps, washi tape, stickers, etc)
  • Puzzles, games, do-dads

Comment: Thank you, Laurel, for messaging me about the late send. I really hope your baby boy is better. I understand the big concern for parents during these times (as opposed to regular parental worries). I'll look up the book you mentioned. Have a beautiful weekend and may today be better than yesterday.

Comment: Hi, Laurel. Thank you very much for the banana bread recipe. It is a great addition to my collection. It's a nice story about your friend, and yes, home baked goods are a special way of sending love. (I also like banana bread with chocolate chips in it.) Richard

Comment: I have rode horses once or twice when I was very little; my dad is a teacher and would take his students on “retreats” in the Shenandoah mountain area of Virginia. Thank you for this beautiful PC! I like it a lot :) Happy Swapping.
