since the mister has been traveling across the country in the o.g. nellie bus i have been one dutiful girl in the studio. gobs of glass pieces are everywhere, collage's are strewn across tables, mod podge stands in several containers on several different floors of our live/work, snippets of paper are to be found underfoot in many many many places. i have been steadily working my way through grey's anatomy (finished season 1) and loads of my favorite cheese ball dorky travel man: rick steve's europe! i'm learning a lot while i whittle away at piles of glass needing to be trimmed. off i go again...cheers!

i'm in a show back in virginia in april; part of my old co-op gallery, WONDER. i did these two collages this past weekend. i just don't know if they are finished though - & if i'm questioning if they are finished, they probably aren't finished. i usually know spot on when i'm done with one. i'll leave them out & ruminate on them.
i also worked on loads of new necklaces - incorporating text into a lot of them. thus i was cutting for hours last night!!!
which leads to the scissors picture...

i teach art too (in case you didn't know!) -- we are gearing up for our annual spring art exhibit; it's huge & everyone in the school community loves it. these kiddos are working on some projects inspired by frida kahlo to go up in the show. they are such a great inspiration - even though when i have kindergarten they wear me out!!!

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
the mister is out for a few weeks. i miss him.
is there anything better than a little ee cummings?

i have become a habitual afternoon tea drinker now. around 2-4 pm you will find me drinking another cuppa cuppa & either fiddling with day's end work for the next day at school, or finally at home toodling around the sprout studio -- packaging packages, editing web pages & photos, making new goodies, endlessly organizing...
it's a good afternoon ritual i think. i'm sticking with it!

...back from my retreat with the 8th graders! phew! i love this print for a lot of different reasons; it's by julianna swaney of oh my cavalier...i love most of her prints - so different & unique. is she reigning those birds in? are they coming to tell her a secret? are they her little family of birds she's getting ready to let go? i also imagine them as all these separate personalities that are nattering away inside her brain (must be the fresh off the 48 hours + of 14 year olds!)...i love finding prints that intrigue me - my jen corace prints totally intrigue me - when i don't quite know what is going on; what the individual is thinking/where they might be in their head...& this is one of those.
i'm on a bit of a print purchasing extravaganza; i need to chill for a while because right before i left i purchased mav's house print & i jumped on sugar loop's green vases print as well! ai yai! somebody stop me! :)
i'll post those beauties when they come in the mail too! tonight i need to package up sprout studio goodies ordered in the last week & call my momma!
happy monday all!
