These two teacher canvases did have to be done quickly, and I love them both! That daisy is so cheery, and I had fun blending all of the pretty colors on the fish.
Thank you Nicole and Kelly! Order again anytime!
A deep chocolate background with diamonds just a shade lighter.
Classic black and khaki.
A modern touch of red.
An anniversary gift for a surprised wife (thank you, Lee!).
An anniversary gift for couple married for 43 years.
A wedding gift for those special newlyweds.
Beautiful in the wedding party colors with a crystal beaded handle.
Whatever the occasion, or no occasion at all, these family canvases are versatile and sure to be a keepsake.

I've finished another semester teaching art for the 2+2 Program with Tennessee Tech. For those of you who don't know, 2+2 is a program that allows the students to move together as a group through the classes required for a teacher's license. I wish it had been around when I was getting mine!
During one of our last class periods, we did one of my favorite projects...tie dying! They turned out all bright and beautiful. You just can't mess this stuff up!
I had a wonderful group of students who were so much fun to work with. There were also so many this time that I did not already know. I truly looked forward to Monday afternoons and I will miss my "art time". You guys will make great teachers!

When I went to bed Sunday night, I had a plan for the week. It was a busy week, but I knew where I was supposed to be, what I was supposed to have with me, what was due, what could wait, and even what was for lunch and dinner each day. At about 4:00 Monday morning, all of those plans were scrapped.
I woke up to my son crying because he couldn't get his eye open. I also found myself with an extremely sore throat. At 5:30, I was at school getting ready for a sub. I lost my voice and didn't feel good at all, but did I ever make time to take myself to the doctor? No. I still haven't.
I made myself go to work on Tuesday because I was an honorary park ranger for the day at Rock island State park with a group of ten fifth graders on a Career Day field trip. The fresh air and sunshine was so nice, but it left me exhausted. I did have a somewhat regular day at work on Wednesday aside from a forgotten interview at the radio station and a huge pile of to be graded work. My hubby stayed home with Carter for those two days. What a trooper! He also managed to leave me a little love note on the van windshield one morning. Hey - you take what you can get!
Thursday morning I woke up unable to get my eye open. Again, I found myself at school at 5:30 unexpectedly getting ready for a sub. Will I never learn? I missed t-ball practice and Carter's first game. I missed Clover Bowl and who knows what else...I feel like a bad mom and teacher.
While I am moping at the dinner table, I get a call and find out that I have jury duty on Friday. I got there at 9:30 and I do not make it back to my van until 6:40. My birthday dinner was supposed to start at 6:00. I guess what I am getting at is that I always have in mind what I am supposed to do and that is not always a bad thing. So why am I up at midnight writing? I couldn't sleep because I was lying thinking about all of the things I am supposed to do tomorrow. Like I said, will I never learn?
