Day 31 (1127)

Such jam packed catch up day, that I don't have time left for a few social events I really wanted to get to. :(
Finally (!) here is the cumulative piece of Jack and the Beanstalk.  Still might do a blue column behind the stalk.
Enjoy (sorry the photo doesn't catch the depth.)
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 30 (1126)

Friday sweet Friday! Loving my art club students.  I had to have a conversation with them about wasting. In their over zealous excitement to create, some of them have been wasting quite a bit. But they got it, understood it,  and really work to improve in that area. I think it helped me explaining how much it costs me personally to have an art club. These creative kids are so amazing. Glad I started this endeavor. Today's piece is still a random one. Tomorrow I will do the cumulative piece. Peace and fabulous

Day 29 (1125)

Oh boy! What a goofy day. I've been waking up before my alarm for the past several days at the same time. So today I decided to get up at that time so I could stop at the grocery store for caffeine and be to school as early as possible. Got to school and the person who unlocks and disarms the alarm wasn't there.  25 minutes later they got the doors and alarms off except for the kindergarten and the art room. We have a separate alarm. Little over 4 minutes later my room is unlocked just in time to slide my stuff in the room and walk across the hall for a meeting. The half hour meeting went on an hour and ended just in enough time to walk back across the hall and greet the first graders. All the things I had planned to prep for them not done, luckily they're an awesome group of little people and flexible like I have to be in this job. Thank God tomorrow is Friday.  Today's piece was suppose to be a cumulative piece, but want more time to assemble it. Instead I did an elephant from one of the lyrics of this new song that speaks to me so deeply. Thinking this weekend I need to dive even deeper into this song to find an art piece or so.

Day 28 (1124)

Another marathon type of day...meetings, teaching, art club, potluck, school wide bingo calling........... Whew
Amazing how the muse, perfection, and the wall compete for the same space, blocking the soul of heart beats. A few more minutes squeezed out of an endless hour.
Also read the lyrics of a newly favorite song that ties the heart, soul into a rhythm of motionless dance.  Wishing for the moves of Usher for this one.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 27 (1123)

Oh mama! That was a marathon of a day! Classes, 2 student groups painting chairs, reading for a half an hour with one of my loudest groups, cleaning up many messes, the dentist and pot luck food making.... Thank God it's ....Tuesday? 
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 26 (1122)

For a Monday today was not too bad at all. Though that does concern me because when Mondays are great Tuesday tends to be rocky, and vice versa.
Today's peace looks more darkly twisted than it actually is. Hopefully it makes sense on Thursday.
Muse of the past with a more intense focus is still driving a creative overflow.  Gratefully walking its' fine line.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 25 (1121)

Odd yet productive day.  At a weird point where darkness leads to art.  Where art felt like a sort of Alice in Wonderland portal to block it all out.  A numbing muse. Puzzle pieces of completion. Avenues yet to explore.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 23 (1119)

The first part of the day was fun and reminds me why teaching can be enjoyable. Add in Art Club which is hyper fun creativity. Then the afternoon brought in ennui, etc...
Grateful for Friday's.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 22 (1118)

Overall great day student wise. Actually took some time to paint some of the mural on the classroom wall, shredded old school papers and announced the paint a chair contest winners.  So excited with whom I choose.  As expensive as this school year is getting, the experiences my art creative students are getting is so worthwhile! Seeing them excited about being creative in an entertain me society is priceless!
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 21 (1117)

Waking up with both shoulders / back muscles tightened up vs the usual one and the lower back seized up too, does not make for a very fun day. Finally by tonight 8 o'clock, it has finally loosened up a little.

Day 20 (1116)

Wow! The students were off the chain today! Very, very, very, very chatty and off kilter. I'm so hoping tomorrow will be a much, much better day.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 19 (1115)

A peaceful day of reading, lunch, shopping and such.  Today starts another new nursery rhyme/ fairy tale.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 18 (1114)

Quite the day.  Very physically and mentally challenging day. Chairs sanded and ready (except one that is missing a piece lol!)  Between sanding, taking down the last of the Christmas decor and cleaning, it gives much space to thought.  Too much.  Questioning, sad and confused. 
Today's piece was a bit of a side step.  It came to me while looking out my kitchen window.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 17 (1113)

Between sanding chairs and putting together the pieces of the Humpty Dumpty scene,... Blah blah blah. The photo didn't fully capture the depth of this picture. Each level comes up off the page more than the previous one. The story starts at the top and works its way down to the bottom. It also has a little twistedness to it too. I hope to mount to to black foam core.  Enjoy!

Day 16 (1112)

What a day of trying to organize things that had been unorganized last year when I moved classrooms, went to a friend / coworkers father's funeral, and working on sanding down Five little kid's chairs so that my students can paint them for a fundraiser. Hands, fingers, back and neck hurt but TGIF.  Grateful it's a 3 day weekend because I don't think a 2 day would be enough.
Great to hit day 1112, because at one point I was going to stop at 1111.
Also saw today another level of change that needs to happen.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 15 (1111)

Day seems like a productive blur.  My back was a hot mess so that just put a bit of an extra blur on it.
Just in an odd place, feeling like being forced in a corner. And that is not a wise thing to do.... Neck roll and snap! I can count on one hand those who have seen that side of me that is being forced to the surface.  Smh.
It was funny to see reactions to yesterdays post lol! Saturday's will pull the whole thing together.

Day 14 (1110)

Happy hump day!  Today's piece should put it all together for you! :).
This fall I was reflecting on my timeline and realized my life moves in cycles.  Major and unique changes happen on specific Yeats. Put those thoughts aside until tonight when that gut feeling said changes are a coming.  So enjoyed a second night of cooking and jammen.  Bring it on!
peace and fabulousness.

Day 13 (1109)

Weird day! This morning set the tone for an odd off kilter sort of day.  Apologizing to a student for mistaking his behavior set things upright for a bit, but then oddity prevailed. 
The dental hygienist decided to go for gold in cleaning today, yikes and ouch!
If you're still not sure what the story/nursery rhyme is tomorrows piece should put the "pieces" in place.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 12 (1108)

Oi! It is Monday. Students are in serious need of recess!  Tired out but got a lot done today.
If you are still not sure of what this story/nursery rhyme is, either tomorrow or Wednesday's will make it very obvious!
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 11 (1107)

After doing most of my normal Sunday things, (in the midst of it) I thought it was Saturday! Good thing I figured out that it wasn't. Lol.
I got to catch up with a college friend today as well. It was so good to talk to her! It's been too long.
Today's piece is part of the theme still, though I had to add one additional piece to it. I really felt strongly I need to support my fellow creatives, especially after the tragedy in Paris.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 7 (1103)

Nothing better than an unplanned day off of school. I'm glad they called today off because of our kids that walk to school, take city transportation, etc...
Got some things done, read some books, a beautiful day.
Today's piece starts the next children's story / nursery rhyme. Can you guess which one this one is?

Day 6 (1102)

Woke up this morning and felt like I hit a wall. The uber hyperness of the last few days seems to have drained away. Hit another wall midway through the day. But on a unexpected fun note, no school tomorrow!  Massively cold tomorrow. I could get used to this.
Took the last few days worth of creatures and assembled them into one picture. Not sure if I'm overly happy with the background, but it'll have to do. And if you haven't figured it out lol it's the three little pigs.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 5 (1101)

The first day back after Christmas break went alright. Kids were little more mellow,  though a lot were absent. I thought I had finished a lot of stuff before I left only to find out I left a lot of stuff not done. Lol. It's all good.
It seemed like they had stopped watching the abandoned house next door, but came home to find there garage was boarded up too, so now the house and garage match.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 2 (1098)

I had a nice time this afternoon catching up with a friend over lunch. Today I also got started on a few of my New Year's goals and that was quite enjoyable too. Today's piece is the first character in the first story I've chosen. Should be easy to figure out which one.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 1 (1097)

Happy New Year!
I have decided to continue onto 2015! 
This year I wil continue in the creature venue, but mix it up with fairytales and nursery rhyme characters. 
Today's is baby new year done in almost transparent paper which represents this blank canvas and all the upcoming events and experiences this year that will add color to our lives.
