Bowl Painters and Art Teacher Night!

Here are a few pictures from last night's gathering of bowl painters in my art room. Whew! We got a lot of bowls painted! Plus it was a lot of fun, even if I was a little delirious from being at work all day. :-)

Tonight, is Art Teacher Night at the newly renovated Arthouse at the Jones Center on Congress. I'm looking forward to find out what they have planned for us and also to see what the space looks like now.

Hope everyone is have a great week. Yay, for tomorrow being Friday AND for Halloween weekend!

Bowls ready for paintin'

Here's a little peek at some of some of the fantastic bowl that were made in my classroom last Wednesday night. Can't wait to see everyone back in my room this coming Wednesday for painting! :-D

Just sharing

I need to go to sleep. I just spent the past few hours out on the town visiting with a friend that I haven't seen in four years. So much fun!

Now I just want to post this little video, which is so simple and so cute. I just have to share it again.. I heart it!!!

Ok, now I'm gonna go to sleep.

Oh, October...'s a little bit of what's been going on around here... We carved pumpkins at my friend Carin's house. We also made little votive candle holders out of baby food jars, tissue paper and glue, and Dia de los Muertos masks. Not to mention the snacks, I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of them! Mmm... cheeseball, and cupcakes... hahaha! I think October just might be my favorite month. :-)

My little pumpkin

All of our pumpkins!

Holly, glueing down her mask on construction paper, and looking very lovely, I might add. :-)

Sofia, Christina, and Carin at the spooky craft table.

Quote stuck in my head ...

I've loved this quote since the first time I heard it:

“When I say, "I love you," it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are..." - Joss Whedon BTVS

(big suprise where it came from, haha)

She's painting again!

Well, I am that she who is painting again. Here is the one I am working on today (in progress). It may look a lot different by tonight. It is 30 inches by 40 inches. I am also sipping 'Happy Belly Tea' (mmm...) and memorizing my scene for class tomorrow night. Today has been a nice relaxing day. Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend.
