Snow, School, Sickness and Snips
I'm working on a series of insect snips to hang down in my studio. I made a lot of insect snips as Artist Trading Cards, but would like to have a few of the insect designs for myself.
Today was a teacher inservice day, so kids didn't come to school. Lucky dogs. It was snowing like crazy, but teachers still had to go in. I had been asked to lead an inservice for high school, middle school and elementary art teachers in my area. Leading any meeting is pretty far down on this list of "things I ever would like to do." Plucking nose hairs would be more favorable to me than leading a meeting. In the end, no one called me an idiot or fell asleep, so I guess it went well enough.
My room looked great! Thanks to my neighbor, MK, for letting me park carts of junk in her room during the meeting.
At the end of the inservice, the school system announced that the buildings were closing early. I had planned on going to the doctor's office after work but they cancelled all appointments after 3. I think that I'm getting better anyway. It's about time. I've had this cold, or sinus thing, for the past ten days.
I got this in the mail today:
MaryLClayPainting traded these wire Artist Trading Cards with me for two of my insect ATCs. I just adore her work. ADORE it. Especialy the crab one. She has an Etsy shop too. Wonderful Wire.
