Crazy Busy...but still no excuse

Hi Everyone,
It has been crazy, crazy times around here....
For me, the hardest thing about being a teacher is the first day of school, and Monday morning was just that for me.
On last Friday, I bid farewell to my highschoolers, and moved into my new role as a middle school teacher. Monday morning was my first day back at middle school...and it has been a long week so far!!!!
I have been doing little snippets of art thanks to a great class with Gina called No More Excuses. I love how each day we just do little tiny snippets of things that don't take long at all, and you are still very creative...which right now, is exactly what I need.



I have not been able to do my usual blog tour lately, and I can tell you that I really miss the nice dose of inspiration that I get from going to your blogs. I am hoping to get back to regular business this weekend and will be back to your blogs soon!!!!
Take care everyone,
Until next time,
Ophelia

oh my goodness, Ophelia! Best to you! I can't imagine starting up with a new grade level, new school, all new students with your new postion right now!! I will stop and say a prayer for you and your strength, my dear! Hugs to you and I LOVE your pages. (I have been teaching for about 23 years now, and I have to admit to you that THIS class I might trade!haha They are in my Top Five most frustrating classes...)Oh well.

I saw this over on Flickr - it's fab :-) I'm amazed you find time to do any art at all! How old are middle schoolers over there? (I teach age 7 - 11) Hope you find a bit of time for more art x
