even more art

I promise to get back to lessons soon, but I wanted to share my latest creation. It felt so wonderful to stretch my own canvas again (something I haven't really done since college). The little hearts are cut out of scrapbook paper. Love the results, now I just need to paint a room to match.

art time for myself

It's true. I'm obsessed with StumbleUpon. It is also true that I do know of Pinterest but have yet to jump on that bandwagon. Just like I haven't jumped on the Twitter bandwagon because I was one of the first true Facebookers.

Due to this obsession with StumbleUpon, I have had my mind bursting with creative energy and ideas. Take a look at my recent endeavor below. I hung it up in my art room and the kid's responses have been super positive. They all want to do it themselves. Maybe I'll treat 5th graders to a fun class involving this craft right before they leave me for middle school in May.

Go. Do something artsy for yourself.
