This green + navy blue and white chevron dress from Spool No. 72. I am loving the idea of mixing colors together. Especially bright colors. This dress is adorable and affordable. My kind of dress!
This scene from my classroom today. Paint, paint, acrylic paint everywhere. I have a stressful love for painting in my classroom. Stressful because of the potential mess, but love because the kids look forward to this all year and get super excited when we start. I save this project for the end of the year in hopes that my students will know how to mix colors, and also feel somewhat comfortable drawing. But the kitty cat painting on the right took my breath away today. A freshman girl who has never painted started that painting today. At one point I glanced over at her working and was just stunned. She was diligently painting her heart out - unafraid. Seeing colors. Looking. SEEING. She has not been a student that has felt super confident in her art projects this year. But today, without worrying about doing something wrong she put paint on a brush and a brush to a canvas. And it looked amazing. I love moments like that in my class. Love.
Sorry for the tangent, it just really inspired me today. As a teacher and as a creator of art.
These nail polishes and color names. I'm not sure if it's legit or not, I tried researching them but sadly could not find a whole lot of info. The image was credited to cloudtaster over and over...not sure if they are for real, but I absolutely LOVE the idea of them! The Office never ceases to crack me up!
This set of Koi water colors + a water brush. I bought them a while back from Amazon after Lori recommended them. I have used them SO MUCH over the past two weeks and cannot say how much I enjoy the ease of usability and clean up.
New Nike Free+ 2 running shoes for Adam and I. I love the bright colors of these and seriously, these just make me happy to go to the gym. New shoes or new work out clothes always does.
And finally, kisses from Henry (sighhh...!) I know, I know ;) He's just too cute.
When I lay flat on the floor, he loves getting up on my tummy and going in for kisses. Sweet everyday moments that brighten my days.
Thanks for dropping by :)
