I was born in the Netherlands and I lived there until I was 9 years old. Although, I did not speak English when my mom, my sister, and I moved to Glenwood, Arkansas in 2000, I started 2nd grade right away. That was a grand adventure!
Like I said, I am and Art education major and my main interests are sculpture and ceramics. I prefer to work with 3D material because I am a very hands on person. There is just something wonderful about manipulating material into something brand new.
I want to teach art because I believe art helps student to relax and express themselves in a nontraditional way. I love kids and I think teaching is one of the most fulfilling professions anyone can go into. Getting to teach kids about art will be very exciting and rewarding.
My husband and I recently bought our first home and one of our main hobbies is gardening. We plant things like peppers, okra, tomatoes, watermelons, and fruit trees. Almost all the produce we eat, we have grown in our own garden, and we take great pride in that.
Along with gardening, we have started canning many of the foods we grow. Some of our favorite things to can include, pickles, rotel, pepper jelly, plum jelly, deer meat, figs, and sauerkraut.
The reason I chose to write a blog about mason jars is because there are countless ways to use them. They can be used for canning food, storing things, drinking lemonade or sweet tea, decoration, and they can even be used for ART! Through this blog, I will explore various ways to utilize mason jars.
