About Me

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.

If you need any other info please feel free to email me anytime!

Comment: Thank you for the WONDERFUL package! I absolutely loved everything. You are the first person to ever buy me an apron (I have never purchased one for myself either), and it brought back childhood memories of me and my grandmother. Thank you again!

Comment: Darcy, if I could give ten hearts I would!! Oh my gosh....I was absolutely floored when the HUGE box was delivered. First, the quilted tin itself was beautifully made. I love the colors and patterns you selected, and the quilting you did on the outside as well as inside of the tin. You are so talented! And then...the extras you sent (all the wonderful art supplies and books you sent to my daughters) were above and beyond anything I could have even dreamed. My daughters are thrilled with what they have received so far from the box...and know that there is more to come! Thank you SO much for your generosity and thoughtfulness. After having such a difficult year, this truly is a bright spot for us all!

Thank you SO MUCH! For the package you sent for the christmas stocking swap! I'm not able to rate you, since the coordinator reassigned partners (due to the suspension of my original sender), but i wanted to make sure you knew how awesome the package was.

If i could, i'd give you a 5, and as many hearts as it would let me give you!!!!

You rock.
