I live in Utah. I have been married for almost 15 years and have an AAS Degree in Business Education. I worked for about 7 years as a legal assistant but currently I enjoy being a stay at home Mom. When I left the work force after having my third child, I sometimes struggled finding a place of escapement for those days when being a Mother drives you to the brink of insanity (You know what days I’m talking about, right?!)
This is how I Heart Crafty Things started. Finding a hobby became a necessity for me…I soon realized that after our weekly trips to the library, I loved making crafts with my kids that corresponded to the books we read. Designing crafts to make with my children became my hobby and the fact that it involved spending quality time with my children, made it absolutely perfect! Over the years I’ve also enjoyed sharing fun educational activities and printables that I have used at home with my children. I am not a certified teacher and don’t profess to know anything about early childhood education, but I love teaching my children and I love sharing our activities and ideas with you.
Along with our love of book inspired crafts, I also have a serious addiction to crafting with paper plates and cupcake liners. Someone also recently nicknamed me “The Bird Lady” (think, the crazy cat lady, except with birds) because of my ever growing collection of bird crafts, especially owls. Oh how I love owls!
I am super duper excited that you are here and I hope you heart crafty things as much as I do! If you are new, I would suggest browsing through all of the categories in my menu bar. If you can’t find what you’re looking for shoot me an email and I can help you find it, or I can help you create it. 😉
I am terrified, TERRIFIED of spiders. They are seriously out to get me, I swear it! When I was two I put a black widow in my mouth and attempted to eat it. By some miracle, my Mom got it out of my mouth before it bit me.
Shoes??? Meh…I prefer a closet full of EARRINGS!
The color yellow, cardigan/sweater weather, field trips with my kids and being in nature make me very, very happy! I could eat pizza every day of my life and not get sick of it and I LOVE the smell of paper!
Phew! That was a mouthful.
