Before I began with bellesheartsncrafts, I lived in England with my 3 older children, my dogs, cats, goats and chickens. I worked at a local high school as an English Language and Literature teacher, my specialism was working with students with social and emotional barriers to learning - an intense and challenging time; to make a difference, I had to be creative in my teaching.
Then it all changed. I met my husband who lived in PA, we got married and I moved over to the US to live. We have a toddling little boy with whom I spend my days.
I decided to trade in my creativity in teaching, for creating with my hands. I have always enjoyed working with wood and with fabrics; inspired and taught by my father - an amazing carpenter, engineer and artist; and by my maternal grandparents with their unquestioning belief in me always.
I absolutely love being able to create truly unique and personal pieces to become a part of someone's story, someone's memories to treasure for a lifetime.
Thank you for taking the time to visit
