Have you found your passion in life? Or maybe many? Mine is definitely a combination of creating and teaching art. I went to university to become an art teacher, and I L-O-V-E what I do. After happily teaching a variety of secondary level art classes, I am now an elementary school teacher infusing art into the classroom wherever I can in order to inspire kids to share in my passion for art.
When I began this website it was intended to be a professional artist portfolio, but as I enjoy blogging about art more and more, I realize that I need another creative outlet. I enjoy reading DIY blogs but it mostly just makes me want to write my own! DIY Blogging is kind of like combining my love for teaching and my passion for art all in one go. If you look into the archives of my "Artist's Blog" you may see some early hints of my love for this Teach-Blogging style. Full time teaching apparently makes me want to teach more! Who knew?
I plan to keep posting about art and painting in my other blog, but here I will write about printmaking, card making, jewelry making, photography, repurposing, home decor ideas and anything else creative that inspires me to post. If you have any requests for topics along the way, please comment on a blog post or email me. As I know I have been inspired and taught by many talented people along the way, I will try to always give credit where it is due.
Check back often as I plan to post regularly! Look for features such as Stampin' Saturdays that I will be starting off this blog with tomorrow. If you know anyone else who is interested in this sort of thing, please spread the love and share my blog with them. And most of all, share with ME if you have learned anything from this or made some crafts after reading a post! Nothing will make me more happy than knowing you tried something out and had fun doing it.
