Welcome to The Art in Martha, a creative living blog! This is a place to spark your creativity and find inspiration. You will find a little bit of everything here: DIY, crafts, sewing, Silhouette CAMEO projects, stuff for the kids, tutorials, and even some parenting tips from a creative perspective.
I am married to my patient and ever-so-understanding husband Brad. We have two children and I stay at home with them during the day. I work part time as a military musician in the evenings and recently, I picked up an two additional jobs, one as a family literacy facilitator and the second as a childminder for a baby/toddler reading & rhyming program. I obtained a Bachelor of Music and a Bachelor of Education long before having children and worked as a band teacher in my mid twenties.
Catching the Blog Bug
A year ago, the Silhouette America Blog put out a call for the 2014-15 design team. Since I love to craft with my Silhouette CAMEO I decided to submit an application and to my great delight, I was selected among a group of 14 other design team members. Although this endeavour has come to an end, the impact of this opportunity has been overwhelmingly positive in my life. It reignited my creativity and has consequently brought fulfilment to my life and has made me a happier person. Now I’ve caught the creative bug and I just have to share it with you all!
Take a look around and come back often. Thanks for stopping by today!
