About Mary
Canadian by birth, living in the USA by choice... I am a wife, full-time homemaker and mom of three. I enjoy bible studies, cardmaking, reading, photography, simple recipes, music, and organizing. I may not always get my dishes done, cards mailed out on time or use my camera in manual mode but I try - hence it being my endeavor! You will find a little bit of all that interests me on my APE blog {hey - I like gorillas!}:
