About Me

I am an elementary art teacher and life-long crafter. I have a very unartistic husband but he's been around for 34 years so I guess I'll keep him. My only child/daughter is a high school art teacher.

Favorite Music

Lean toward mellow music...favorite James Taylor. Also enjoy musicals...Wicked being my current favorite. Really enjoy all music...least favorite would be country.

Favorite Books

I am an avid reader. Some of my favorite authors Jonathan Kellerman, Patricia Cornwell and for laughs Evanovich. Love to read magazines especially artsty/craftsy and cooking.

Favorite Movies

Ones I can watch over and over again... You've Got Mail, Father Goose, Passion Fish, Meet Me in St. Louis...an odd assortment.

Favorite Television

Don't watch a lot of TV but like House,Parenthood, Bones and Glee. Spend more time on Food Network and HGTV.

Favorite Crafts

Love to craft. I enjoy making things for other people. I have tried every craft known and have the boxes in my art studito to prove it. I enjoy sewing and working with polymer clay. My new obsession is working with fused glass. So far I've been working on small jewelry pieces but am scheduled to take a class at a local glass studio. I take classes when I can and was lucky enough to be in classes taught by Donna Kato and Laurie Doctor.

Things I Like

I like earthy colors...sage is probably my favorite. I love handmade items. Since I'm an artist/art educator, my friends seldom hand make me gifts...guess they are intimidated...though I can't see why. I have a hugh Christmas tree that I cover with ornaments...can always find room for more. I like angels and fairies. Like coffees and teas...not too particular about flavors. I make books, so I enjoy all sorts of papers and embellishments.

Dislikes

Not fond of cats, much prefer puppies. Overly religious items. Country and canvas crafts. I prefer simplicity to overdone. Unfortunately I am diabetic, so...even though I'd love to indulge in sugar, my doctor would appreciate it if you didn't temp me. :)

Comment: Thank for the extras! The cookie cutters did arrive slightly damaged though. The heart one was pretty knicked up, I managed to bend the other one into shape. I'm just worried about how my cutters are going to arrive now!!

I see you daughter teaches art too… Perhaps she would like to become involved in my little experiment too.

I just invited you to be a member of Classroom ATC. Have you ever thought it would be fun to have you kids trade art with other students from around the world. I'm an art teacher from Minnesota, USA and I want to do a ATC trade with other art teachers so we can have a professional conversation to see if Swap-bot might assist in Classroom ATC Trades. Join our swap and group if you want to learn more.
