About

Before my life with kids I was a preschool teacher; I continue to have the title as teacher, but now I only have two students and they call me 'Mom'.
It's not a bad gig, because it pays in hugs and inspiration. Unfortunately, I cannot pay for very much in the currency of hugs {sigh}. So, using the inspiration which they also give me, I've open up shop.

My kids names are Max and Izabella. But you would never know it from listening to my husband talk. From him they have been called by forty-two different knick names and counting, most common of which is my shop's namesake: Moe and Bean.

I'm a hobbyist.
I'm a do-it-myselfer.
I'll try anything once.

Over the years I've managed to acquire many hobbies and talents. One of which is not Rollerblading [ouch] . Some hobbies lay dormant, such as needle felting, flower arranging, and jewelry making. While others take over every free moment I can scrounge up, like knitting and sewing. My talents are rather eclectic and I like it that way. I can go out change my oil, identify plant species, and sharpen a chainsaw, then come inside, cut my husbands hair, broil some tofu, and bake a vegan cake.

I'm a science buff, logic game enthusist and an animal lover. I keep an aggressive salt water aquarium, have three dogs and a backyard of chickens. Some things are meant to be kept simple, our life just isn't one of them.
