Hello, my name is Darlene Hardeman. I have enjoyed making dolls, ornaments & other crafts for many years. My passion for creating began while attending the Art Institute of Atlanta and has evolved into sharing it with others at local arts & crafts shows. I recently retired from teaching various grades K-3 in Jacksonville, Florida. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Don,for 37 years and we have two sons Justin and Brian. Brian recently married a sweet girl, Chelsie, and they are expecting our first grandson, Eli William, in January 2017.
