Profile for itsmythingdesigns
My name is Wanitta. I am 49, have two kids (21 and 23) and have been married to the same great guy for 24 years!
Originally a West Coast girl I moved to Alberta just before we were married but we now have plans to move back to Vancouver Island next year.
Over the years I have engaged in many community activities such as a volunteer craft instructor at a nursing home, sang in a community choir, volunteer costume designer and maker for a local children's musical theater group all the while being a stay at home mom and "living" at the kids' schools doing various volunteer work.
I was born in Vancouver but moved to the Island shortly before my 10th birthday. We lived in many places on the Northern Island where I became immersed in the First Nation's culture. This is how I came to love beading, needle crafts, jewelry making and many other art forms. For more info please visit my website at itsmythingdesigns.com and read ‘Jewelry ~ Not Just About the Bling’. Since then I have enjoyed designing and creating with various materials.
Both of our kids have inherited my creative genes and I am very proud of them for their accomplishments so far. My son is a web designer and runs his own company, Airglo Media, employing two other guys. As well, he is employed with GE and designs interactive interfaces for them. My daughter has been painting since she was 11 and has had her water colors and acrylic works featured in 2 local galleries and one Edmonton gallery and is now attending university for graphic design - specializing in photography.
I suffered a bilateral pulmonary embolism four years ago after ankle surgery but that hasn't slowed me down. I love life, adventure, family, photography and creating. As I say "It's my thing and I love it!".
