Welcome to My Bucket of Parts!
My Bucket of Parts started my sophomore year of college when the student newspaper was looking for new columnists.
I volunteered as tribute, and I never looked back.
I had no clue what I was doing, and didn't exactly know how to write a column, but I continued on and did the best I could with humor. I enjoyed it so much, after I graduated, I continued to write online columns under the moniker My Bucket of Parts.
When purchasing web domains became a thing, I snatched mine right up. I started to call it MBoP -- and people think I'm quoting the Hanson song. Um, they're spelled way differently -- like, they use 3 or 3 M's.
Although My Bucket of Parts has taken mostly a written form, I've decided to take on illustration and design. I've been teaching it to middle school students for the past 15 years with award-winning yearbooks, but I think it's MY turn.
Welcome to my bucket! I hope you find some of the parts you were looking for.

I've been a journalism teacher for 15 years, and while it's great fun to teach kids the basics of graphic design. With My Bucket of Parts, I get to practice what I preach, and build my skills with fun printable goods.
