It's been a long while since I posted. It's been a busy couple months! Between school, home, and designing for some wonderful companies, I'm a little crazy! It's bound to slow down soon. I hope.... Well, at least for the next week, I'll be on "vacation" for Spring Break!!! YAY! The kids will be off and so will I. We plan to play, make stuff, and relax! At least for a few days and then I'm sure I'll be pulling my hair out with trying to figure out what to do with them!
So, I'm going to share a little of what has been going on in my world lately. First, I have been featured here and here. The blog, Just Perspective, is one that I found by chance. The owner of the blog, Sue Mylde, is one of the girls that I design with on Pencillines Sketch blog. I was asked to create 3 pages with 3 different words that mean something to me and give me perspective. So, I chose Ability, Communication, and Inscription. I LOVED doing these pages and the canvas that hasn't been shown yet. I used Faber Castell products for the color and am proud to say that I came up with a few new ways to use the Gelatos. One is on this post here at the Faber Castell site. I created these sprays and I have a new post coming up next Tuesday that shows how to make glazes or paints from them! It's a lot of fun!
Now on to my work life... I have been so busy with getting work hung up, labeled, teaching, and Open House! We've had 3 artshows in the last 2 months + one BIG fundraising event called Empty Bowls. I wrote about that several posts ago. Well, it was a HUGE success and we raised over $600 for our area Food Bank! So happy that the kids, families, and staff has such a great time. I know I did!
Here are some photos of the events and artshows:

Our Open House was this past Tuesday so here are some photos of the artwork hanging in our halls for the event!
I'm so proud to teach the kids in grades Kindergarten through sixth grade here! What fabulous work they do! It makes my job crazy to push them to do this kind of work but LOOK at it! WOW! It's worth it!
I'll be posting more work from me later! Have a great week!
