Right now I'm not feeling so great. The baby and I have a bad case of lay on the floor and watch children's educational programing. As such not much movement has been made on the house and art projects. Instead we'll reflect on the weekend past. This weekend, deep in the bowels of the Detroit… Continue reading S.O.S.

This video is meant to help kiddos understand the importance of craftsmanship. We go back in time to meet a very influential artist. Check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fc2FaFATdXc&t=11s -Jo
Happy Halloween! This is first year we really got into Halloween with Iris. Since September we have been asking her what she wanted to go as and we finally agreed upon a rainbow. I looked up rainbow costumes and saw I would need to spend like 60 dollars and those costumes looked pretty straight forward… Continue reading Happy Halloween!
I've spent a majority of my time this past week working on patching a settling crack in our ceiling. Bending over backwards while facing upwards has left me a bit not terribly interested in drawing or making much of anything, but that won't stop our little painter. Her frothing demand for Sarah & Duck related… Continue reading A green tiger
I did it again! I made another video. Remember the last one? This one isn't a song though so you will miss out on my wonderful singing skills. Sorry. This video was much harder to film, but it tackles a very important subject in my classroom: stinky attitudes. Or, "atti-toots" cuz they stink up my… Continue reading Atti-TOOT-ers
This week I'm reviewing a few of the cuts that I've made over the past few months. Seeing still images of them doesn't quite get across the way that they look in person. To try and remedy this I've done a few short videos and converted them to GIFs for fast consumption. While setup, filming… Continue reading Some different views

Apologies!*** I have always wanted to film some of my weird parody songs that I sing to my students, and today I had the opportunity! This song is dedicated to those kiddos… Continue reading Supplies Song
Still busy around here, and it hasn't even been that long since I shared work last time. Anyhow, between Friday and today I was able to sit down with my progeny and craft some more... let's call it art. I asked her explicitly what she'd like me to draw her during her nap and she… Continue reading Short time
This week has been plagued by alternating illness and culminated in a thrown out back. I've taken it in stride, but I'm also beat. Long story short art time has suffered and I don't have a lot to show for it. I did however, throw together this rendition of what happened to my back.
Guys! I did it! I finally tackled my chalkboard in one of my rooms! My room looks soooooo much better. Remember this post? Long story short my OCD kicked in and I was forced to make my room prettier. After I made my walls all fancy and colorful my eye went straight to the big… Continue reading ART
