Hello all! This school year has gotten off to a busy start! I am "on cycle" which means I am getting observed, at least twice, this year. One observation is announced (this Thursday!) and one is unannounced... Surpriseeee! Besides school, I have been busy cleaning my house. Boy, has our house suffered from a lack of upkeep this past year!

Ok, the big announcement! GRAD SCHOOL IS OFFICIALLY OVER!!! Well, "officially" in about 2 hours at midnight but it's pretty close. :) So this school year will be my sixth year teaching art! ... This is also my third classroom in those six years. Grrr... So much moving and "starting over". Welp. Here's the most recent room!

Hello all! Only one and a half more weeks left of grad school and then I will have my Master's!!! Woohoo! In celebration of this event, I have an awesome review of the New York Baking Company's silicone baking cups for you. I had to "break them in" so I decided to relive my middle school home ec days and make Bubble Buns for you all.

I participated in my first ever miniatures swap with the wonderful Jennifer from Plushpussycat! She was a dream to work with and I was honored to have her collaborate with me for my very first swap. Jennifer suggested that we list some items that we would want the other person to make so that we don't end up with items we will never use. What a brilliant idea! Unfortunately, since I am not picky when it comes to Jennifer's miniatures, I told her that she could send me anything. This miiiiggghhhttt have confused her a bit. :)

Wow, two days in a row posting! I must be crazy! You will really think I am crazy after reading how long it took me to post this project. So remember back to last summer when I was in a small group for my church called Pinteresting? One project was making a yarn painting and I chose to do a chandelier. You can check out photos from that night along with some step-by-steps here. I didn't finish that night but I did finish about two months later (right before fall). Annnnddd then it took me until now, almost a year later to post the final results. Yikes. Time flies!

Ever since school got out, things have been super busy for me! I finished my thesis (almost 40 pages!) and have been doing errands nonstop. You know, all the things you don't have time to do during the school year. Yesterday (Friday), was the first day that I didn't have to set my alarm in the morning. And guess what? Since the poor kitties don't understand time and sleeping in and all that human stuff, they woke me up at the usual 6 AM for breakfast.

Mhm... Summer is almost here! I am so excited to be finished with school this year! We are wrapping up the last few days and clearing out our classrooms. On the other hand, summer brings warm weather. And by warm weather, I mean hot weather. I am not a fan of temps 80 and above. It brings that nasty thing called sweat. Anyways, here's a perfect summer recipe that will leave you feeling light and refreshed! Added bonus? Oh yeah, it's low carb too!
