about me

The mom in ordinarymom.ca is me, Janet Murphy, a freelance designer located outside of Ottawa, Ontario.

I have two kids (aged 7 & 9), one dog and a very busy husband. We recently moved from suburbia to a more rural location and this blog is a place for me to document the journey of making that new place our home. I love to paint a room while my husband is away on business trips and make changes that help with our day to day living as well as fulfilling my personal desire for clean and comfy decor. I like to sew, take photos, design and organize.

Of course sometimes it is ALL just an excuse to get paint on my jeans. :)

Thanks for reading!!
Janet
