a Sunday Blessing

ahh summer...
And God said, "Let the land produce vegetation:  
seed-bearing plants and trees on the land 
that bear fruit and seed in it...
And God saw that it was good."
Genesis 1:11-13

king and queen for a day

I am working on this one for an upcoming juried show.
Thought he needed a metal crown...
and she needed some buttons.
Will share the finished version next week.

fireflies and s'mores mean summer

Ahh summer officially starts today.
Yesterday was my last day of school, working in a 1/2 split class.
Oh how I will miss those guys and their energy.
Next week I teach summer art/iPad camp all week.
We will be creating in mixed media and 
then trying the same subject on the iPad.
Should be wonderful and I will be posting projects next week.
Here is a glimpse of the firefly project we will create on Tuesday.
and here is our summer treat that we received from the Latte crew this week.
Think I will put the idea on pinterest - 
so adorable.
Wishing you all a wonderful, warm summer!

So they are stocked for the summer.

My newest art at the gallery

 I decided to try some thing different.
You may remember I was making notebooks,
but what if you didn't want a notebook,
but liked the look.
So I created some art with the same idea.
 And of course I have to add words,
just because,
well they make me laugh,
and all old books should be given a second chance,
don't you agree?
 I would love to own a crow named Amelia whose nose was elevated.
 I am hoping to make these
as the price point will be much lower and
just hopefully these will allow me to make some monthly money
as I do have some big news...
No TAing next year. 
I will really miss those guys,
but it's time for a change.  
I will teach 3 after school art classes each week
so I will still get my kid-fix
spend the rest of my time
creating art!
Here are my pieces at the gallery
just waiting to go to a loving home.
Please come see!
