About Me

My name is Darcy. My husband, James, and I have been married for 8 years. We have two monkey children: Peyton, who is 6 years old, and Ella, who is 4 years old. A little over two years ago we up and moved from California to Iowa just to try out something new. It really is amazing here and it's quite an adventure.

I am a night owl. In my dream world I would go to bed at 2 am and get up at 11 am.

I am addicted to lip balm. I have Burt's Bees lip balm stashed away in almost every room of my house, and in my car, and in my purse.

I don't like to exercise, but I try to do it anyway. There could be no lazier person walking on a treadmill than me. I only walk fast enough so that I don't feel guilty about not working out.

If I don't have coffee in the morning I am not happy.

I love to take pictures. I am my children's personal paparazzi.

Sometimes the love I feel for my children makes me feel like I could just explode with happiness. Sometimes my children drive me crazy.

I make and sell craft kits for kids. I love creating fun things for kids and their parents to do together.

I am terrified of bees and wasps.

I love the thunderstorms in Iowa.

I love my family.

"My grandson and I started working on the Saturn kit the day after it came. It is so wonderful to have everything in the kit!! When I taught school, I was always the one to have to get all the supplies together and it was sooo time consuming. I don't know how long you've been putting kits together, but you have every detail covered!! I will be a repeat shopper!"

What the people are saying:

"Great projects - my kids are having tons of fun making these! Fast shipping and great customer service. Thanks!"

"SOOO Cute! I can't wait to use it with my kids. Will definitely be buying more soon!"

"Got my kits today, and I love them. Great packaging, and these will be crafts that we will be able to use as gifts and decorations, as opposed to doing them and throwing them away. The packaging of each kit is particularly neat--made my child really excited about doing a craft! Thanks for doing all the hard work!!"
