"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.".

― Eleanor Roosevelt.

Madeline Clark Sanford (Maddie) graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in history. She loves books and history and all kinds of creative things from knitting and sewing to painting! Her favorite type of art is visual journaling, or mixed media art journaling, which mixes well with history and books so it will make a great class.

Maddie originally set out to become a professional dancer, but had to change plans due to a foot injury. That brought her to Appalachian State where she met James Sanford in an honors class on breaking German codes during WWII. She handed James a code after class one day, and when he solved it, he had her phone number! (He says it was a pretty difficult code to break!)

Maddie and James live in Chapel Hill where James is in dental school. James is in the Air Force, so they will go wherever they are sent after he graduates. (Fortunately, Maddie can teach for the Delightful Art Co. from anywhere...maybe they'll meet some of our students in Hawaii and Japan someday!)
