About Me

Hi! I’m Nicole, a graphic designer from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Dutchie Love is a lifestyle blog that showcases my everyday life, recipes, travel, style, interior design and other passions.

Throughout my childhood I was constantly filling sketchbooks with doodles, turning my mother’s recycling into crafts (hello egg carton jewelry holders and decoupaged cereal boxes), endlessly rearranging the furniture in my bedroom and drawing grandiose floor plans for my future mansion. Creativity is in my blood and I’ve always got a few new projects on the go.

I fell in love with communication arts in high school and graduated from MacEwan University with a diploma in Graphic Design & Illustration. While I was there I met the love of my life, Nathan, who happens to be a photographer and we tied the knot in August of 2012 after six and a half years of dating. We both come from Dutch family backgrounds, hence the name Dutchie Love. We recently moved into a new house and we can’t wait to transform it into our home!

In my spare time you can usually find me reading (I read 100 books one year thanks to the Goodreads challenge), enjoying the company of family and friends, working on a new creative idea or snuggled up with my love watching our favorite shows. Thanks for visiting!

  1. Hi Nicole,

    I just saw your wedding photos and I’ve been looking for a venue with a barn and outdoor ceremony. (I’m near Calgary and our wedding is planned for Sept 2015) Where was your venue located??

    Warm regards,

  2. Hey! I stumbled upon your blog when I keyed in #yegblog in instagram and I’m glad I did! My husband comes from a dutch background too and I’ve learned to love all – well, most…things dutch! (Although he is still very Canadian, being in the newer generation already). Glad to be here!

  3. I rec’d the Love the Shit poster from my daughters for Valentines Day. It is amazing. I wanted to make you aware of the Edmonton Calligraphic Society and the upcoming international calligraphers we are hosting for workshops. Please contact me at jeaninealexander@hotmail.com or check out our website.
