I am a crafter, mother, wife, cousin, friend, sister, daughter, and work-a-holic. I currently work for Fiskars Americas in Wisconsin as their Content & Education Manager. I started with them part time as one of the founding four lead Fiskateers - yes, those Fiskateers - and have since crossed over to work for the company. I was a teacher for 10 years in the Chicagoland area and moved to WI to work full time in the crafting world. I have 2 boys and a hubby as well as a cat named Daphne and I blog, facebook, and tweet about life and crafting. I travel the country teaching people about the power of crafting and gardening and the joy of it as well. I truly feel blessed to have my hobby as my profession and work hard at what I do. I am a Master Gardener and avid home cook to top it all off. Most of all I am Crafter. Gardener. Foodie. Mother. Blogger.
