I am an art teacher at a very small school. I have 2nd grade-12th grade students. I started a blog for the parents to see what their kids were making in class, and I thought it would be a good idea to at least mention it here.
I usually do not like realizing I forgot the MEAT portion of our meal and having to book it to the store during the dinner hour rush. However! I thought to my little ol' self, "I wonder if tulips are in today?" Ta-dah! They were.
Um! Ohmygoodness, I fell in love with this baby chair over a week ago, and I played my thrifting trick ... "If it's still there when I get paid, I'll buy it." YES! SCORE! I love the shade of green and it's from the '40s. Hello '40s! I'm in my '40s, so why wouldn't I love something FROM the '40s? Cha-ching.
Last year, I enrolled in an online course taught by Lisa Congdon, and Mati Rose. It was money well spent.
There were several participants who suggested I make prints of these paintings, and at the time I wasn't super confident. Today, I'm throwing caution to the wind and listing them as prints in my shop. So there, insecurity!
I came home from school on Friday ready to p.a.i.n.t. I am sure having a pseudo-holiday for me (real one for the boys) made my need to make skyrocket. And the weather. Sun, chill, breeze, blue sky, spring flowers for sale. I broke out my goods and dove in.
'Grace' was completed this afternoon. Whew. Now I can do some chores...chores are always the first to go during a painting spree. (Pros and cons to that.) We all have clean und*rwear. That's what matters most.
Glorious day. Wall to wall blue sky. Crisp start to the morning, complete with neighborhood walk with Jeff. Coffee. Two cups, which is pretty unusual for me. After the first morning cup, I typically do not want another. Not today! I savored that second cup. I found these amazing hibiscus while erranding. They must have just been watered. Aren't they beautiful? Have a wonderful weekend.
I'm skilled at having an idea at the eleventh hour and not stopping til it's completed.
I teach middle school English (7th/8th grades), plus 2nd-12th grades art. My poor middle schoolers have two major tests (very short ones) in English tomorrow a.m. They're making sure I know just how mean I am for giving them not one, but TWO tests on Valentine's day, so much so, they begged me to bring candy to soothe their wounds. !!! BLACKMAIL!
I decided to make them little Valentines to accompany the c.a.n.d.y.
And. Just for you fellow eleventh hour'ers out there, I thought I'd share my very homemade, FREE printable.
