My Blog about Choice-Based Art
I am in my 12th year as an elementary art teacher, and I love my job, but I am quitting at the end of this year to pursue a masters in Art Therapy.
I have been married since 2005 and my husband works at his father's bicycle shop and has a degree in Painting and Drawing. We have one daughter, born in 2006, and she also loves art. She is in a dual language program at my school where she is learning Spanish.
I lived in Germany as a child (in Schwetzingen, which is near Heidelberg) and would love to meet a German pen-pal around my age (I was born in 1981) with similar interests. I would appreciate any messages in German, actually. I can still read and comprehend without a problem, but I am out of practice speaking and writing.

I spin, knit, crochet, and dye yarn. I have done some yarn bombing, and I would love to do more. I love street art of any kind. Sometimes I like to make mini-zines. I joined postcrossing a few years ago and I love hunting for postcards.
