The Hubs is the natural artist...well, to be more accurate, he is the PAID artist...a Senior Art Director for a local advertising firm, to be exact. And Me?? I'm more of a CRAFTS kind o' girl. In fact, I'm such a crafting mama, that the Hubs designed a crafting studio in the attic of our house just for little ol' me. An inviting, warm space to create...in buttercream yellow! Give me some scrapbook paper, a stash of fabric scraps, and a glue gun and watch out!

When it comes to choosing creative endeavors for our homeschool, I come out of my crafting studio, rub off whatever ARTistic talent I can from my husband, and set to work making a mess of my dining room table in an attempt to teach my children the fine art of FINE ARTS. No crafts welcome! (I am currently using Usborne's Complete Book of Art Ideas for inspiration and filling in with some wonderful Pinterest projects.)
And why, you ask? What's the difference? Crafts...Art? Isn't it the same thing?
