About Me

I'm taking a break from swapping for a while, maybe a long while. I haven't received several packages. I'm tired of the postal system. It's just discouraging. I had fun with dotees for a while and that's all for now. Jan I'm still checking for you:)

I live with my husband and my sweet black lab Jojo she's my baby! I am an art teacher, grades Pre-K through 8th grade. I love teaching art, I get to create art all day everyday, I can't imagine doing any other profession!

My students love when we do the unit on paper mache sculptures. They love making these larger than life works of art-they turn out awesome! My students work is posted on Artsonia website- check it out!

Favorite Crafts

This is a hard choice which is my favorite but I just discovered Dotee Dolls which I'm making now-love them!!! They are so addicting!!!

Prosculpt polymer clay babies, mini charms, I love making and collecting ATCs.

I draw all the time in my scketchbook for practice and for the fun of it!

I love to save my memories in scrapbooks!,

I do needle felting and have made several really cool guinea pigs, a few dolls, it's a lot of work but really fun to do! and many more-just about everything!

Being an art teacher I do everything, so my students can experience all areas and mediums of art so they can find what they truly love.

DOTEES I would love to receive or make: pirate, fruits-bannana, cherries, strawberry, lemon, lime. Rapunzel, Chesire Cat, any Snoopy themed dotee!!! any Koala themed dotee!!! M&M themed, Christmas tree, cupcake, icecream, coffee, I'm making a mirror face dotee, & a hardware dotee-will post pics on flickr when done. I have a lot of ideas for more dotees, will list more later.


I love purple-can't get enough purple!!! Pink is second-I guess it's a girly thing-lol.

Love glitter!!! Shinny things. Love minis anything miniature little mini animals, erasers.

I LOVE SNOOPY-love Snoopy!!!! I've been collecting Snoopy stuff for 12 years!

I love black labs, and dog themed items.

I LOVE KOALA BEARS!!!!!! I have a small Koala bear collection.

I like Hello Kitty, I have a small collection.

Love little woodland animals like racoons, foxes, squirrels, chipmunks,deer, hedgehogs,anything cute! Love any fabric with these little creatures!

Love Vintage Christmas children & pet pictures-so cute! Little kids with kitties or puppies, they remind me of childhood around the tree on Christmas morning!

HATE-spiders! snakes, the color yellow or teal, no devil, no witchcraft! No smells-allergic, no candles!

I am a christian so religious things are welcome! My life is wonderful because of my faith!

Favorite Music

A lot of various types it's hard to say any one style. Def Leppard is my favorite rock band! I met them in Allentown PA at the State fair in 1998- it was awesome!

Favorite Television

Love reality shows! DIY shows of course. Comedy -laughter is the best medicine!

Favorite Books

I love Mysterys, and of course crafts books. Love my art magazine collection!

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.
