I'm an art teacher and that's a good excuse for saving all sorts of things. For years I have had a box of old adding machine paper  that my  husband tossed my way when he left a job. After 20 years I felt it was time to use that paper! So recently my students created streamers from the paper to dance with...yes, in my art room we dance! The students were excited about the streamers, and the dancing, but I was more excited about the little rolls that were leftover! They are gorgeous little things! And I am reusing those babies!!

I am making a point to to plan, but don't always get around to carrying through. I've decided to just do it! After dancing all day at school, I'm a bit too worn out to create sometimes. But I will!!! Posted: 6:54 am on April 20th

We should ALL dance on our jobs ~ every day!!!! How inspiring to your students and what a great memory of you they will grow up with ~ I would never forget you!!! Posted: 10:35 am on April 19th

My class has been doing hip hop for PE and I'm known to burst into song in class on a moments notice! I love your necklaces, so keep up the great work! Marie Posted: 2:39 am on April 19th
