I’m Jacque! By day, I’m a high school Theatre Arts teacher and director. By night, I’m a hot-glue-gun-loving crafter, quirky earring collector, antique shopping maniac, cozy-space maker, and a momma to my little boy named Finley.

When I’m not directing a musical or building set pieces using cardboard, I love to draw, paint, digital design, bake, and crochet. Honestly, I’m all about anything crafty or messy (or both). I love to go see musicals, plays, and concerts with my amazing husband of 10 years.

My idea of bliss is to sit on my porch with a cup of coffee and let the sun warm my face in the morning. In complete juxtaposition, I can stay up until way past midnight working on a massive craft project that has come to life and taken over my entire kitchen.

What really lights me up as a writer and teacher is to focus on all the ingredients needed to create happiness and fulfillment as a creative being. I’m obsessed with mindfulness, living with intention, kindness, gratitude, and self-care. I also really love gummy bears & Mister Rogers quotes!

Hope you will stay a while and come back to visit again soon!
