Take a deep breath

Four days into the school year at a new grade level in a new school. Take a deep breath. I WILL get to create art again, just not right at this moment. So...here's a quote to sum up the times......"One of the most difficult things everyone has to learn is that for your entire life you must keep fighting and adjusting if you hope to survive. No matter who you are or what your position is you must keep fighting for whatever it is you desire to achieve." George Allen, football coach.

Beautiful books

Taking a break from working on my lesson plans, I visited a wonderful blog that sent me to this link. If you like books OR art, you will love these submissions to a show in Santa Fe. http://www.santafebag.org/2009rotundasubmissions.html
Enjoy!

Hot wax


CHA Craft Superstore was amazing, overwhelming, noisy, idea overload, etc, etc, etc....but I am so glad I went! I figured that before I took Suze's class on using beeswax and the Melting Pot, I'd might as well spend the day oohing and ahhhing.

Suze is everybit the fun lady she seems to be, and I was not disappointed in her class. I'm one of those people who like to have a little bit of hands on with someone who can tell me the ins and outs before I break out on my own, and that she did. I'm very pleased with my paper napkin frame and can't wait to find the perfect photo for it. If you ever get the chance to, take a class with Suze Weinberg!
