Who am I?My name is Eileen Chadis Wood.
(Mrs. Stephen A. Wood) We have two sons ages 24 and 21.
I have been working/teaching in the field of crafts on and off for 35 years. I worked/volunteered at the UJCVP summer camp for 6 summers. I am have been teaching a spring after school "Clay and More" craft class at The UJCVP Early Childhood Center for the past 14 years. Teaching in Newport News and for 2 years at their satelight site in Williamsburg VA (For more info and their mission statement see: Info)
Having lived most of my life in Chelsea, MA. I spent 2 1/2 years in Champaign IL. and the last 20+ years in Newport News, VA.
I am a former teacher/administrator in the field of Adult Basic Education and Literacy. With the move to VA, I had tried to "retire". Which in reality meant: I am working for little or nothing, but enjoying it.
My main love is to do community service work at the UJCVP and Rodef Sholom Temple. Where I have been chairing some of their education committees, helping with fund-raising (including the annual JCC 5K Race) plus a past member of the Temple Board. (For all of this, I was presented the UJCVP 1997-98 Community Service Award.)
In 2007-09, I chaired a volunter commitee for the Ferguson Center for the Arts which is a incredible set of concert halls in Newport News VA at Christopher Newport University. . It is for Community Outreach to bring "Arts for All". I orgainize community and neighborhood groups to attend events at the Ferguson Center. It is very rewarding, as many of the groups are schools and senior citizens. The committee helps them get discounted and sometimes free tickets to many cultural events. Many of them would not have been able to attend with out our help. Operas, concerts, plays etc. Kept me very busy.
In addition to all of these web and volunteer projects I am also the owner/artist for:

I has also been featured in many issues of Shalom Boston.com's web site. They have had me write articles on crafts and celebrating Jewish holidays. Check out this interesting site.
Plus my beadie projects have been used on various large craft sites and inspired manufacturing companies including: Making Friends.com and Jewish Educational Toys Hopefully this page will finally explain to all of my friends and relatives across the country, what I am doing with my "spare time" as a stay at home mom!
