Hi there! I'm an elementary art teacher. I have a wide group of interests. The fun thing about being an art teacher is that you can always justify trying a new art or craft project! Lately my main interests have been sewing projects - sewing, embroidery and quilting. I also love all things small - ATC's, small paintings - anything little just really tickles me. I also love to doodle and have a million little sketchbooks and am always on the lookout for new fun pens. Fall is my favorite season - I love pumpkins. I've also been into birds lately - owls and crows mostly. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday - I love the cooking and the chance to enjoy family and friends. I like Christmas things that are homemade - I usually try to sew or craft a new ornament for the tree every year.
I'm a big reader - loved the Harry Potter books and the Twilight series but I read "grown-up" books as well! I love to spend an afternoon at the bookstore looking for a new read or just checking out the craft and cookbooks. My husband says we could start our own library with all our books!
I also love baking - cakes, cookies, cupcakes - YUM! If I hadn't been an art teacher I would have loved to be a pastry chef. I did have a business doing wedding cakes with a friend, which was a blast but life, house rennovations and babies got in the way of the cake business. So now we just make awesome birthday cakes for fun. I don't have any food allergies - I love milk chocolate and nuts (every kind), chocolate and caramel but not raisins! I'm pretty happy with any chocolate as long as it doesn't have fruit in it -oh and white chocolate isn't really chocolate is it? ;)
I love the color green, pretty much anything with a nature-theme, things that are simple and modern. I love Denyse Schmidt, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Heather Bailey, Amy Karol and Betz White to name a few. I generally like things in earthtones or bright and colorful, nothing pastel please.
Not for me: Disney stuff, Ameriacana, anything religious, things with kittens or puppies on them, anything science fiction, pastels, things with strong scents, anything with raisins in it.
