I am neither writer nor photographer, so not the obvious choice for a blogger but I'm a mama with a need for a creative outlet. I have two lovelys, Bee (8) and Lou (6). I have recently gone back to full time teaching, enthusiastically teaching 3rd grade after having been home with my kiddos and happily teaching preschool. I am striving to find a balance between home and school thus this poor blog is neglected. I have a neglected etsy shop, I sew, craft, bake, and garden (or used to anyway) all to keep my sanity. I am a talented polly pocket dresser, bouncy ball behind the couch rescuer, and art apron tie-er. I run, bike, and climb trees. I'm a wanna be soap maker and some day marathon runner and chicken owner.
