Owner And Creator

Charlotte Laila | Founder & Creator

Hello, My name is Charlotte and I created Habitat Schoolhouse earlier this year. I'm Mama to a two-year-old firecracker and have a little bun cooking in the oven due in November 2018. I've been blogging for a number of years and after having my daughter was inspired to share my teaching degree and passion for art with my readers, thus Habitat Schoolhouse was born. I'm an artist and avid yogi. I live in Vancouver BC with my husband, daughter and hound dog pup named Hank. I collect 1950's furniture and cookware and eat guacamole like its going outta style. 


Hope Connelly | Client care & Communications

My name is Hope Connelly and I am 28 years old,  I am a stay at home momma of three beautiful girls, Madison, Ryleigh and Nova. I was born and raised in a small, farm town in the Fraser Valley, which is were I am still residing. I prefer coffee over wine, drives over walks, pools over beaches and dogs over cats. Most of my days are spent drinking copious amounts of coffee while taking care of the girls and being a (somewhat decent) wife to my husband Joe. When the kids are gone I enjoy going out for a bite to eat with the hubs and checking out the local shops or just enjoying the quiet house by snuggling and watching our shows together. 


Sheesel Holden | Spanish Language Translator

My name is Sheesel and I’m the creator of the blog Hickory + Ash. I’m a wife & stay at home mom of two living in sunny California. I have a Type A personality therefore enjoy planning each and every day. I love black coffee + the sweet company of family and friends.

Getting married & having a family has been the best thing to have ever happened to me. It has given life a whole new meaning and has taught me more than I ever thought possible.
