About Elise

Hi! I’m Elise, the girl behind the keyboard at HomeMaiden.


Thanks for visiting my site! 

I love creating and doing. I am constantly dreaming up new recipes, redesigning spaces, building beautiful items to showcase in our home, and finding new and exciting adventures around us. Sharing the things I’ve made and done makes the process even more enjoyable.

Who am I?

I’m a proud resident of Hamilton, Ontario where I’m lucky to be surrounded by many artistic minds. I’m a new homeowner – my fiancé Ryan and I bought a house and got engaged in the same summer! To say we’ve been busy these past few months is an understatement. I work in public relations and in my spare time I love to eat, hike and create.

What will you find here?

In my previous blog I stuck strictly to recipes that I’d created myself. It was a bit limiting and very time consuming to test and finesse each one. This time around I’m branching out and will be sharing not just recipes but DIY projects, home renovations, room designs, wedding plans, lifestyle tips and local gems I think you should visit.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll be back!
