Spice it up a bit!

Snow, snow, and more snow!!
We need something to liven the place up a bit so…
I borrowed this beautiful dress from the Spanish classroom and...

My students have a wonderful colorful subject to draw and paint!

I love the detail of the lace and the shadows it casts

Maracas added the final touch!

Love playing a bit in photoshop too!

So even today with the clouds and scattered snow showers 
we had something fun and bright and different to work on.

3:20 am

Oh, yes it is quite early!
It is Monday morning and normally if I can't sleep I would be stressing about
Having to get up in a few hours and get myself off to work. But, the weather has made a change in my plans as school is closed today. Yes ...yet another winter storm is upon us.
  So, now instead of squeezing my eyes shut and forcing myself to sleep
I am blogging!

I started blogging quite a few years ago. I need to look back through my archives to see exactly how long it's been. But my guess is about 9 years....wait I was able to scroll back and my blog was created on September 21, 2006!

Right now I'm blogging on my iPad. I love this portable little square miracle but, I haven't gotten to know how to use it as far as adding photos to my blog. So bear with me and I hope to bring some colorful and original art and photos here soon!

Have a great day my friends!
