Candace Osmond

Interior Design Specialist & Crafter

Candace is a huge crafter and loves to share her tips and projects with others.

She’s a proud Canadian, born and raised, and currently resides on the rocky east coast with her husband, two kids, one slobbery bulldog, and two adorable guinea pigs. When her fingers aren’t flying over the keyboard, you can find her roaming the beautiful beaches of Newfoundland or reading a book at her lake house.


Candace is an Award-Winning Interior Designer with a Certificate in Color Theory. When she’s not writing or reading, you can find her holed away in her craft room painting figurines, canvases, and merchandise for her bookish Etsy shoppe. 

Through her years as an Interior Designer, Candace also worked as a Soft Goods Specialist, designing and making everything from window treatments to throw pillows and even bedding. 


Candace studied Design at SCAAT, Advanced Writing & Editing Essentials at MHC, and Small Business Essentials at CNA. She also received her Color Theory Certificate through Pittsburgh Paints and is a Certified Soft Goods Specialist. 

She’s a proud member of ALLi (Alliance of Independent Authors, WANL (Writer’s Alliance of Newfoundland & Labrador), and is the co-founder of LENL (Literary Arts of Newfoundland & Labrador).
