...on my day off from teaching art...I teach art. Yep, can't get enough apparently! I got a chance to sub for Mrs. Tina at Muzart and it was so much fun! The kiddos were working on coffee-themed pieces for an upcoming show at Starbucks...and I know a thing or two about coffee and I love to paint so it was a perfect match! Can't wait to see their work hanging up!
After my class I had a BIG early birthday surprise waiting downstairs...literally, it was a large box! John ordered a dress form for my birthday and, well, it arrived early!
I wanted a dress form to work on a project that I have...kind of under wraps for now but...I think it could be awesome and I am so excited...can't wait to share more...but that's for later!
Back to the dress form...I have actually wanted one for a long time. I think that I first realized I wanted one back in 2011 when I attended SDA Confluence...that was what jump started this here blog and laid the foundation for me to rekindle my artistic inspiration...then later join up with the whole Creative Every Day movement...and I have been making art everyday since January 2012...but truly, I owe it all to attending that workshop. (For more info, click here!)
Well, anyway...here are some pics from that time in my life...kind of a big ol' throwback Thursday, I guess. My very own dress form is assembled and waiting...I am so excited...more to come!
Oh, and her name is Molly. I wanted to call her Ms Gunn (to pay tribute to Tim, of course!)...but John said no, that was weird. So...Molly it is!
...THANK YOU AGAIN JOHN FOR MY EARLY B-DAY PRESENT!
