About Me

Once upon a time I was an art teacher.

Then I was a stay at home mom.

I missed making.  I missed inspiring little people to make their own “stuff.”

Now by some weird twist of fate I get to be both a stay at home mom and an art teacher!


I started blogging as a way to connect with other families that have chosen this crazy homeschool lifestyle.  (You guys are good people; the most encouraging, helpful bunch out there!)

Along the way I’ve realized what I really love doing is sharing my gift of creativity with other families. Making things comes easy to me.  I need to make things in order to feel happy.

I enjoy making all kinds of stuff; cooking, sewing, blogging, painting, you name it.  I don’t do any of it because I’m particularly talented at it but because it feeds me.  Making art isn’t about being “good” at it!

Free, it’s all free…

Whether you’re a homeschooler, a classroom teacher, or a mom that just loves seeing her kids create I want to be that resource that helps you along the way! In my quest for materials and resources for my own kids I’ve discovered that I’d like to share my own talent and be a creative resource for all of you!  I love creating printable resources that can help anyone teach their kiddos basics about art. 

Everything I make I share for free.  There’s no catch.  It’s free for you to use in your home or classroom.  To get access to all of my printables in PDF from all you have to do is subscribe to my weekly newsletter.  You get one email a week (no more) letting you know what we’ve been up to and what new printables I’ve added to my library!
