Leslie's substantive and authoritative articles cover topics like leading craft activities with children, craft ideas, and crafts made from a variety of mediums like clay, art papers, fabrics, beads and paint. To write her how-to articles and informational articles, she draws from years of experience teaching children the arts at the city rec center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where she was an instructor. She studied art in college, so she is familiar with a wide range of mediums and materials. In addition, she has a family of her own, so craft projects are a daily part of her life. She has been writing about topics in crafting since 2009.
