One of my first grade girls came to school the other day with this unique way of wearing her hair. It looks woven and must have taken a bit of time to do. Six year olds aren't famous for holding still for extended periods of time!

Did You Know?

There's a website for everything, I swear. I found one for making origami things out of the flap left over when you open up your Netflix movie. ( Who thinks of this stuff anyway? Here's my first effort...a shirt!

Lots of Little Pieces

Finally got to go beach glass hunting at low tide. Found lots of little pieces. Hoping for better luck next week after the storms... that are supposed to head our way.

Another Part of My Journal

Working on my visual journal in an online class. This is one part of the cover. Feel like a C- student in a group of over achievers. I mean, Teesha Moore is in the class for goodness sakes! And other "real" artists with seemingly goo gobs of time on their hands to create. But at last it's Saturday with a lovely 3 day weekend ahead. The luxury of time...

Made MY WORD for 2010 in different fonts to add to the journal...

However, tomorrow I can only explore as far as Room 3...

Another Foggy Morning

Way foggy this AM on the way to school and at school, too. Felt like I was the only one on the road at times.

January Moon

This really is the moon this month...glimpsed through a tree in the backyard.

Glorious Morning Sky

Haven't been out of the house...dressed and ready to take on the day.. at this hour for about 2 weeks. Perhaps this wonderful sight is my compensation for having to go back to the real world of molding young minds.

The Young Victoria Movie

Saw it this afternoon....was not disappointed...I'm such a sucker for the period pieces done in that Masterpiece Theater style...also loved the song that went with it...

Happy 2010!

Starting 2010 with a view of my lovely city. I'm looking down from a hillside park on this first morning of the new year.

The next decade...big wow! Good things coming I can only hope...and hope...and hope.

My theme word for the year is EXPLORE. Explore my art and where to go with it. Explore new places. Explore old haunts with new eyes. Explore my inward self through journaling and talking with my special peeps.

Do you have a theme word for your year?
