Becka - The Mad Gal with a Blog
I'm pushing 40, I am married, I have one kid, I have a photography business that I've not done much with in the past 3 years, I'm a baking assistant learning the ropes of making all kinds of treats, going to Cons and making costumes (basic stuff, I'm pretty easy going) and I like running road races but not so much the actual running part. Oh and I love Doctor Who.

I have all sorts of mad plans for the next little while. Going to be working on improving my photography, finding the love again for it.  I'm going to try and learn calligraphy; my husband is a calligrapher and it's pretty awesome. Unfortunately for me to do this I have to clean my desk, so some of my projects include some serious unf*cking my habitat (using the great app on my phone), so you can expect some before/afters of bigger projects.  I'm also going to be spending my winter perfecting royal icing techniques and sculpting fondant. If you're interested in taking my practice pieces off my hands let me know - I cannot be trusted with sugar cookies *L*

Here are some key players in my world

Kev - The Husband
14 years we've been together, married for 12 of them. He's my rock, my best friend, my true love. We met online, back then it was such an OMG WHUT thing, now it's all No Big Deal.  Our relationship sometimes can freak people out; we rarely have a disagreement, we like almost all of the same things to varying degrees.. oh and we're always together. No really!  In the beginning of our relationship, I was going through the process of immigration to Canada so I couldn't work and then after that I've pretty much worked from home. He's always worked from home. We are seriously around each other almost 24/7 for the past 14 years and we still think each other to be pretty awesome.

Loosh - The Kid
My little minion. He's growing up fast, bright, clever and full of sass.  His biggest things are Pok√©mon, Dragons, Super Smash Brothers' Brawl, Minecraft, being a total goober when I point the camera at him, running and generally just being a sweetheart.   Every day has been a gift for the past 8 years. He shares my passion for nerd TV, attending cons and costuming.

Chrissy - The Partner in Crime
My partner in crime is my friend Chrissy, she's the gal that owns the baking biz. We do pretty much all the nerdy things together, she shares my love and passion for all things in the Whoniverse and we generally get on like peas and carrots.  I've known her for about 5-6 years now, we don't really know when it happened, just how (mom groups!), but we really just clicked last fall when our kids were doing a racing event together. I offered to help her run her booth at the local nerd expo and well - it was like magic!
