Day 30 (396)

Happy Hump Day!  Can't believe it is already Wednesday and only one day left of January.  I did pretty well on my January goals.  This year I set my New Year's Resolutions and am breaking them down one month at a time to reach them.  So each month I set the goals for the month, reevaluate them at the end of the month and set new ones for the new month.  Otherwise I find I just rush into the goals and finish them quickly and don't work towards anything else.  This months was right on track (other than the stomach virus weeks) and started some new habits!  Yeah!
Had another headache night, so today's is a bit odd.
Peace and Fabulousness!

Day 26 (392)

Saturday's are so laid back.  Almost too laid back. Grateful for the police who helped take some old electronics and TVs off my hands while braving the cold.
     Little worried since I'm feeling a bit like I did last weekend. Really don't want to be sick anymore. :\
Did 3 paper creatures today (.I'll post pictures of 2)

Peace and fabulousness

Day 25 (391)

Friday.  What was going to be a short day ended up long. 
Was thinking of my friend Gayle and she likes turtles.  So here's one for you Gayle.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 24 (390)

Whew!  What a whirlwind!  As I was putting all the art pieces up, I realized that tape I used wasn't great and watch as art pieces floated to the ground like fall leaves.  I basically ended up taping over half of the art up again.  (I'll count tomorrow how pieces I actually put out when I take it all back down.)
         The highlight of the night was announcing the winners of the art contest.  I had interested students submit a picture of a book character, cover, or scene.  We're going to make a big mural in our renovated  library.  I ended up choosing 16 winners instead of 10.  The look of pride and happiness on their faces was awesome.
         The frustrating part of tonight was that art seemed to be the after thought or background to this Social Studies night.  In the past, the word art would be added to the note letting parents know, not this time.   When parents were told during the program what to expect of the evening,  viewing the art was also omitted.   Too much work by my students and self makes this not sit well with me.
          So after a 13 hour day, I made a snail.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 23 (389)

Not feeling the best still today, more tired than anything.  Almost all of last nights dreams contained actual laugh tracks,  odd yet enjoyable.
Regardlessly, I put in 10 hours today and have almost everything prepped for tonights student social studies and art night.   It's so much work and early this year, but I love seeing the kids get excited about showing what they've created.
Tonight, I did a simple fish, that started out as a flower. Yes I'm tired.
Peace and Fabulousness

Day 22 (388)

Nothing like getting up when you think you feel better, driving to work in -10 degree weather and realizing maybe you don't feel as well as you thought.  So spent the morning hurrying around trying to type up and set things up for a sub only to not get a sub.... Until just before the end of my last class ; Lol Luckily I was raised to work through illness...because I got a lot done, which this week is SO necessary!
Tonight just did a paper bunny...feeling bad for just for doing a head, but that's all I got. :)
Hoping for a solid night sleep. My stomach made so much noise last that it kept waking me up.

Day 21 (387)

I don't think it got over -5 below today.  So it was a perfect day to watch the Presidents inauguration.  Wanted to do more creative things, but don't very good still.  Hope I feel better tomorrow since my Tuesdays at work can be brutal and with so much to do this week to get things ready for the school student art show so I can't afford to be ill.
Did a interesting paper dude.
Peace and fabulousness

Day 20 (386)

After a night of being unwell, spent the day in a bit of a fog....all the plans were put on hold.  Saw a bit of black paper and this bird was born, could be related to the angry birds.  Hoping I feel better tomorrow because this is going to be a crazy busy week.
Peace and fabulousness .

Day 19 (385)

Kind of a relaxing day and a forced relaxing evening....either ate something bad or getting a stomach virus. Maybe the massive winds and rapidly dropping tempts brought it in.  Belch.
Did a paper piece that I'll take pictures of tomorrow.

Ah Friday! So nice to be heading into the weekend; Got a lot done, worked out and then did a simple painting.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 17 (383)

Today, especially the morning, was a really Twilight Zone type of day.  Maybe because it was finally Thursday for real.  Saw people out and about at 6:30 am walking, one wearing a mask.  Less kids at breakfast this morning and for the most part they were quiet, and the little students were off the wall hyper... everything seemed a bit surreal.
For feeling like it was Thursday almost all week, Thursday for real was a real dud... lol.
So did a simple paper cut that turned almost as good as I had hoped!
Peace and Fabulousness!

Day 16 (382)

This is turning out to be the longest week in history!  Yesterday felt like Thursday  and so did today!
Little more in humor in today's piece, maybe a prequel to yesterdays?  The button eyes are not all they seem to be .....
Peace and Fabulousness!

Day 15 (381)

It's amazing sometimes how stubborn change can be and at other times it's a piece of cake... I'm finding that out this month/2013.  All the goals I set for this month are easily coming to pass, but the other ones that I haven't officially set, not so much.  Almost fed up with my ruts and routines, but apparently not fed up enough.
Did a mixed piece with paper and pen. Should of planned out the puddle before I attempted it, like I encourage my classes to do.  Don't tell my students.
Peace and Fabulousness!

Day 14 (380)

Woke up on the wrong side of the universe today... put my best foot forward and made the most of it.   May be in a transition mode.....hope so.
Used some used scraps of paper and put together today's piece.
Peace and fabulousness!

Day 13 (379)

What a chilly Sunday!  After 4 hours in an air conditioned room, driving on a few errands I was freezing!!  Didn't think I'd warm up.
Did a fun rabbit pen and ink.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 12 (378)

What productive yet wasteful day! Having a small home, sometimes I'm limited in what I can do as far as room arrangements go.  But I love doing room rearranging and organizing.  Rearranged my living and it looks amazing! Also found a new game on my phone which turned into a huge time waster.
Brought sad frog and well he seems a bit troubled? Lol
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 11 (377)

Friday, sweet Friday.
Silly pen and ink.  Peace and fabulousness!

Day 10 (376)

Come on Friday!  I did get more motivated tonight after work and the gym and made home made mac and cheese... yum!  
Did a drawing.  It is only the head, but I wasn't sure of what the body should be, so I decided to just leave it as is, instead of just attaching something and being disappointed with it.  I really like this face!!Peace and Fabulousness!

Day 9 (375)

What a productive day at work!!! Got so much done, including organizing an area so I have more space for kids to go to during a lock down.  We had a lockdown practice today.  The class I had did very well.  It just breaks my heart that we have to do such a thing.  That our world has come to this.
By the time I hit the gym and got home, I was just in a fog.  A lump on the couch.
Did a paper piece of a diva spider.
Peace and Fabulousness.

Day 8 (374)

Tuesdays!   I forgot how crazy busy they are.... So many classes, but they were great classes and I was happy to see them.  They are a more of good natured groups, just tiring..  also doesn't help that I'm not sleeping the best lately again.  Wondering if the new antibiotics cause insomnia.
So I kind of vegged last night and did a paper piece. Also managed to remember to take a photo for my Tuesday's in the garden blog idea.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 7 (373)

OOOO another fun number day 7 373!  First day back from break and the students were okay, always good to be back in the swing of things.
Did a simple pen and ink during the staff meeting today.   Glad I did.  After waiting 2 1/2 hours at the pharmacy, it through the evening plans way off.  I'll sure be glad when my wonderful doctor is back from maternity leave.
Peace and fabulousness!

Day 5 (371)

A day of organizing my attic which my artist space.  It just hasn't felt like it, something seemed off, so after some organizing, throwing, sorting and rearranging shelf space, it feels more of a creative space.  So by tomorrow, it should be completed, thus goal one of the new year completed! Yay!
Found this awesome paper while sorting paper that screamed dragonflies!
Peace and fabulousness!

Day 4 (370)

A day of organizing the attic, the doctor ( can't wait til my Dr is off maternity leave), fixing the deadbolt on the garage and the gym. 
Came up with this crazy paper piece... don't know where the idea came from but it just popped into my mind....maybe from the land of sad frog. Lol.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 3 (369)

A semi wasted day.  Realize the busier I am the more I accomplish and the opposite seems to be the true as well! Did get to the gym, refill the bird feeder, organize Christmas boxes and the attic and best of all bowling/ supper with Stephanie and Jean!
Came home and created a butterfly I dreamt about this morning.  Peace and fabulousness!

Day 1 (367)

Day 1 one of a new year and a new blog... Decided to get away from colors and go to creatures. Looking back over the past year I realized what I liked best was the creatures, like sad frog, the monsters.... So I'll be doing a year of creatures.The hope is some of the pieces will come together to make bigger pieces. I will change the look of this blog page next since I can't do it via my phone. 
Peace and fabulousness!
