A big perk of teaching (besides working with kids and art) is clearly summers off.
I've had so much fun with summer projects in the past:
2009: art studio
2012: weekly beach paintings
2013: live models
but this year has already been predetermined:
2014: baby girl!
Beyond crazy amounts of nesting and setting up her nursery, I have been patiently working on a few things (she is more than a week late = patience little grasshopper).
I set up a private blog, so that I can record little snippets for her without overwhelming this blog (which will remain "things I make with my own hands").
