About Me
I'm Christina, a "jack of all trades" and a master of education. Or so my degree says, but really I'm still learning every day. I learn most from my connection with the natural world and have been blessed with the opportunity to spend each day immersed in it as a nature educator. Art, nature and service are the roots from which I have built my work and from God, family and friends, my life. My days are filled with teaching, creating, volunteering, laughing with family and good friends, and of course, 3 black cats.

About This Blog
I created 3 Black Cats as a way to collect and share my love of cooking, nature, teaching, arts and crafts, photography, and service. Before it, I had an array of clippings, recipe cards, notebooks, and boxes of pure randomness. Then Pinterest came along. And while most of the randomness became more organized, my projects, materials and skills began to grow. I have been inspired by so many other writers, who have generously shared their passions and allowed me to expand mine, that I wanted to pay it forward.


Shoppe For Hope
Shoppe For Hope was created from my good friend's gentle nudging to share my art. I love to create art and gifts for my friends and family and thanks to her support, I have set up this shop. It is still a work in progress and I welcome any suggestions to help me continue to move forward.

Originally created to raise money for the Four Diamonds Fund, through The Hope Express, Shop for Hope continues to grow and will soon include additional items for sale in support of other organizations close to my heart.


Soil In My Soul
 Soil In My Soil was inspired by the unique group of PA Master Naturalist (no affiliation with blog) trainees, with whom I had the pleasure of spending spring 2013 with at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. This diverse group came together to deepen our knowledge of the natural world and brought with us a wide variety of experiences and skills that allowed each of us to see the nature we knew, in new and exciting ways. We left this initial training, parting ways to implement our grand plans to serve our neighborhoods and their natural spaces through conservation, stewardship, education, citizen science and program support. Here you will find a wealth of information and opportunities, for all those who also have soil in their souls, to learn, teach and serve.
