This is art from grandparents day at school. Emma made frames for her grandparents and they were so cute, I had to take a picture. The other is of a group collage that we did in 6th grade with the grandparents. It says "Joy is to Behold God in Everything." There are selfportraits in it. Can you find the Grandpa that thinks he looks like a clown portrait?

Well tomorrow is Friday so that is exciting. It is Grandparents day at school so everyone is looking forward to it. I just have one art class and I want to find something fun to do with that class and their grandparents. I have some ideas, but haven't narrowed it down. If I come up with something artrageous I'll let you know. Also I want to post a cute picture of Megan and Alex in art today. They are making paper mache bowls.

Emma and Henry have been teasing a lot lately. Needless to say, it has been driving me crazy. So we all all going to take naps today, since its a holiday and there is no school. That way we can wake up rested and happy and prepared for the week. I'll do it if I can tear myself away from the computer. Preston might have to unplug it... Oh...no! Or I can disipline myself. Yeah, that's it, only 2 hr. a day. Yeah, that's it.. Well guess my time is up for today. Got to go.

This is Jack. He is our dog of 3 years now. We got him from the pound and found out he is a runner, though he hasn't taken off lately. He gets really comfortable in his bed at night and lays upside-down. He goes camping with us and chases birds in the backyard. He's a pretty good dog. If you ever talk to Henry, ask him about the time jack was attacked. He's got a really great story.
Thank you Laurel and Jill for leaving comments. I was so excited to have comments. They were really nice ones too. I checked out scrapgirls and it is yummy like two peas. I can't get enough of scrapbooking right now. I am really excited for Calvary's Scrap on Feb 2nd and also for CHA at the end of January. I am hoping to see Elsie Flanagan there. She inspires me.

This first image is of a paint donation given to the school. Patty, the old cheer coach dropped off 4 bags of acrylic tubes of paint. We are in paint heaven. The other two are some art I have been working on. Not sure about how to produce it, maybe they'll be in greeting card form soon.
One request, if you're looking. Can you leave a comment? I haven't had one comment yet. Just click on comments and click on anonymous but sign your name. Thanks. Maybe I can give my art students extra credit if they come to my blog and leave a comment. What do you think?

In my creating memories magazine, there was an article on how to create a digital scrapbook layout, so I tried it for the very first time tonight. I did it. It was pretty easy. You can download a free 30 day trial of Adobe Illustrator here and then download this digital kit here and have fun. I think I need elements for my birthday. I think they sell it at Costco.
Who has tried the digi way?

I got a really cute charm off of Etsy by a girl named Allison Strine. I love mine. Its not this one but it has a bird on it and it says "she runs with a paper trimmer" which is true about me. I am really inspired by this artists artwork and want to learn how to make charms using a sodder iron. Preston says he has one.
The kids riding their motorcycles. Emma learned how to ride the 80 that she and Henry got for Christmas. Henry is going to have to grow into it. Henry and Josh had a good time riding quads around and around the campsite. It was really crowded out there but we had a great time and had fun with the friends we went with. Looking forward to the next ride.
