My intent this morning was to do a couple of quick snips in a traditional style. This snip took around 2 1/2 hours. Not so quick, but I enjoyed doing it.

I have a week and a half left of my summer break, for a whopping total of 5 weeks of summer break. Back in the day, when I taught at schools with a regular school calendar, I had summers that were around 9 weeks long. That long stretch of time was when I could really dig into exploring my art. With a shortened summer break, I just don't seem to have enough time for getting much done. Long summers also gave me plenty of time for thinking about what I wanted to teach during the next school year. At this point in my summer, the upcoming school year is far from my thoughts. I still have so much snipping to get done.
