Barb has been crafting since she was a young girl. Her mother was an avid crafter, often selling her unique beanbag frogs (long before Beanie Babies) at local craft fairs. As a writer, Barb has taken her practical experience and shared it with her readers through various craft projects. She also spent four years as a Preschool Reading Leader at her local library. There she engaged the kids in stories and corresponding crafts. In addition to articles focusing on specific craft projects, Barb also has completed several how-to articles, which feature directions for various napkin-folding techniques.
