Hi, I am an artist, wife, mom, gamer and the Elementary Art Educator at Donald Elementary, a sweet and wonderful school in Flower Mound, TX (outside of Dallas). This is a great place to see how we are integrating studio habits with technology and interdisciplinary connections. I also love to share my "wisdom" (Re: Experiences. From mistakes.) about teaching Elementary Art. I love what I do, and I've been doing it for a long time. Creating and teaching Art is what I live for. Enjoy.

not sure which is worst....

It's Friday.

It's a full moon.

Mercury is in retrograde (for my cosmic friends).

It's the first day of outdoor recess in 3 weeks.

It's Valentine's Day.

It's class party day.

To those who have a snow day today...please read my mind and stop laughing at me.

...it's 8:45 am and I already have a headache and that glazed look in my eyes.


  1. Oh I get what your saying! Although I am home on day 2 of Snow days... 2 snow storms in 24 hours that dumped 20 inches of snow on us! Still have to go out and finish shoveling! As I was shoveling this morning I was thinking about all the really sucky things I would rather be doing than shoveling, I would have rather been: at school with all the Valentine's crazies, teaching my 1st graders to be polite, respectful human beings(this years group is a doozy! One class actually made one of the cafeteria/playground ladies cry, seriously.. same class had to sit in the hallway outside my room before I would let them enter, 7 of them sat class out while the rest of us finished our paintings) do dishes( I seriously hate doing the dishes, with a passion hate...) The day will be over soon! Just keep smiling! :)

  2. Ok, school is finally out. I can tell you, although I haven't owned a snow shovel in 18 years, I think I win. This day. THIS DAY. My ears are bleeding. Stay warm and cozy my friend! And shoveling can hurt you, get your kids to do it!!!!!

  3. I threw up twice this morning so I decided to stay home. I dont think it's the flu, I am pregnant plus I was having sinus problems. But, therr
    was no way I was going to be able to handle the craziness of Vday.

    1. so....what you are saying is that having morning sickness is BETTER than dealing with Valentine's Day at school? OMG that is so funny and so true! Hope you feel better!!!!!
