It’s official =o) And this is my new view!
It’s a lovely one plus den at Spadina and Queens Quay, on a high floor with a full on south view of Lake Ontario from the living room and bedroom. It’s got beautiful finishes, hardwood floors and gets tons of sunshine. It is perfect for me in every way, I really found my dream condo! I’m counting down the days, I can move in May!
For those of you who don’t know me that well, I have wanted to do this for a very long time. I left my last lovely apartment and moved into an apartment that gives me nightmares, just to save up enough money to do this. On top of that I took on multiple extra jobs, and crafting gigs. At the end of it all I can proudly say that less than 40% of the downpayment came from my day job – the rest was all crafts, jewellery, pottery, photography and the Inspira art show last Christmas.
I am very grateful to all the amazing folks who have supported my craft by purchasing hand made goodies from me – it allowed me to earn the money for my first home doing something I love =o)
I am also very grateful to Gabi, my fabulous real estate agent. She got to know me, and what I wanted, and when the perfect unit came on for sale she knew it right away and booked me in. She even brought the offer with her. And she was totally right – it’s my dream condo in every way. If anyone is ever looking for an incredible agent who specializes in downtown Toronto let me know – I couldn’t imagine a more dedicated, hardworking, knowledgable and experienced agent.
Of course, when I meet someone awesome I immediately start thinking of what kind of crafty thing I can make for them =o)
Gabi is a very classy woman, and she loves pink. This bracelet is made with cubic Rose Swarovski crystals, encased in sterling silver cubic bead caps.
Brushed sterling silver squares accent the spaces between crystals, and the clasp is also square and sterling to finish off the piece.
I can’t imagine a more amazing Valentines day!
Beautiful view Shireen. I can ‘see’ you sitting there enjoying the sunrise/sunset. And I love the piece you made for Gabi. It’s perfect. Congrats on the new home. :)
Well done! Great view… ! Congratulations.
Congratulations Shireen! I’m happy for you! It looks fantastic and comfortable home! You made again so beautiful jewellery! I love it – the colours and also the squary shapes!
I am a woman with much life experience. Good, Bad and otherwise. I was born in the 50’s and I have met many, many people in my life. I met Shireen in 2007. We began our friendship, how lucky am I. To have someone like Shireen in my life is amazing. I have deemed myself her biggest Fan. This young woman is incredible. She is talented, creative, driven, focused, and a little crazy(I think I like that part the best) She will stop at nothing to get that perfect shot. I think this one of the Lake View is your best one yet. Bravo Shireen!!!
Go Forth and Conquer
