Maddylane's Portfolio ~ My Story
Here is a slide show of many of the Canadian products that I have designed over the years. You can read my bio below,
but I wanted to share with you my story visually of some of the creations and accomplishments that I have achieved over
the spanned of my creative career. You probably have seen some of these products over the years and even have had
some of them in your homes. I wanted to tell you in my own words a bit about myself. I was born in Montreal, the middle
of a large French Canadian family. I grew up bilingual with roots in Ottawa and in the west island of Montreal. My mother
was very creative, we where always making something, from our clothes to decorative items for the pure fun of it.
I studied fashion merchandising and design. While studying fashion I modeled and fell in love with photography instead. I
Started my first company at 20 designing ladies loungewear. I then went on to design ladies fashions, fashion
accessories, children’s wear and a children's book. This was all when designing was done buy hand.
Then computers came in and changed the industry.
 It was at this time that somehow I made the design switch to home
decorative creations, Christmas decorations and home scented products. I went back to designing children' s wear for a
few years. Then after my second child was born, my priorities changed and I went back to my first love which was design
and making things for the pure joy of it. I started writing articles and taking photos of my creations and sent them to the
Montreal Gazette. I feel truly lucky to have had my MIY articles @Home decor with Maddy published for a six year period.
Then the newspaper industry changed because of the internet and I had to regroup and redirect my career direction to
include the internet and this is how the miycreations website came to be. I made this website myself. I could use the help
of someone who is more knowlegable in this area, because there is so much to learn everyday about the internet
business, it keeps changing. All the Miy articles, photographs and products are all my creations
I keep working at it all because i'm passionate about it all and because .. I believe!
