The punch line to my story:
My degrees are in mathematics and statistics, but my heart has always belonged to the arts. I have worked one of those number crunching desk jobs, taught math at the secondary level and lectured statistics at the college level. But wedged between every “serious” job were as many studio art classes and crafting lessons that I could find. During my years as a stay at home mom and through various struggles and setbacks, I’ve always relied on arts and crafts to be my catharsis.
