About

Hi, I’m Christie…welcome to my very own little piece of happiness. A place where I can express part of who I am while also sharing with you my decorating and party ideas.

I live in Thunder Bay, ON and besides a short stint in Lloydminster, AB when I was 5ish, I have always called TBay home.
It is a beautiful place this city I live in, surrounded by lakes and scenery that will surely take your breath away.

I have a great love for wine, cats, creaky floors, and the smell of scotch tape – not necessarily in that order.

This blog is not about million dollar lake house renovations – my home is old and cozy and my decorating budget depends on how much wine I buy.  You won’t find any recipes or perfectly staged food pics either – I could happily survive on chicken noodle soup and salt and vinegar chips.

This blog is about adding glitter and fun to every project and opportunity that comes my way.  Its about being creative and adventurous while enjoying every extraordinary moment this life has to offer.
I have no formal interior design training, there is no fancy event planning on my resume, and my grammar can be mediocre at the best of times – but I know who I am and I sure know how to have a good time!
My goal is to fill my days with as much joy and laughter as possible, and if reading my posts can make one person smile, then I consider this blog successful.

I hope you enjoy reading Glittering Ambition as much as I enjoy writing it and I would love to hear your thoughts on my ideas, as well as hearing some of your own. Let’s have fun with this!
